the Pharmacological

Pharmacokinetics Ketoprofen properties is quickly soaked up from digestive tract. The bioavailability after intake of 50 mg of ketoprofen is 90% and increases consistently with increase in a dose. Meal does not affect the general bioavailability (AUC) of ketoprofen, but reduces absorption speed. Ketoprofen for 99% contacts proteins of blood plasma, mainly albumin fraction.
The volume of distribution is 0.1-0.2 l/kg. After intake of ketoprofen in the form of capsules the peak plasma concentration is reached in 1 h 22 min.
In synovial fluid the concentration of ketoprofen reaches 50% of plasma concentration (1.5 mkg/ml), ketoprofen is removed from synovial fluid slowly – within 24 hours.
Is exposed to metabolism in a liver where it conjugates with glucuronic acid. About 75% of ketoprofen are allocated with urine, mainly in the form of a conjugate with glucuronic acid. Less than 10% are removed in not changed view with a stake.
Ketoprofen does not kumulirut in fabrics. Elimination half-life of ketoprofen reaches 2 hours.
At patients with a renal failure ketoprofen is removed more slowly, and its elimination half-life lasts for 1 hour. At them the clearance of ketoprofen is, also, reduced. In a heavy renal failure the dose decline is required. At patients with a liver failure the concentration of ketoprofen in blood plasma is increased approximately twice that demands purpose of the lowest daily dose.
The pharmacodynamics
of Ketonal® of the capsule possesses the anti-inflammatory, anesthetizing and febrifugal action.
The mechanism of action is connected with inhibition of biosynthesis of prostaglandins and leukotrienes due to suppression of activity of enzyme of cyclooxygenase (cyclooxygenase-1 and cyclooxygenase-2) which catalyzes synthesis of prostaglandins from arachidonic acid. Ketoprofen stabilizes membranes of lysosomes and has antibradikininovy activity.

Rheumatic diseases:
– a pseudorheumatism
– seronegative spondylarthrites (an ankylosing spondylarthritis, reactive arthritis)
– gout, a pseudogout
– an osteoarthrosis
– extraarticular rheumatism (a tendinitis, a bursitis, a capsulitis of a shoulder joint)
the Pain syndrome:
– posttraumatic
– postoperative
– algodismenoreya
– pain in metastases in a bone at patients with oncological diseases.

The route of administration and doses
of Ketonal® of the capsule accept without chewing, washing down with enough water or milk (not less than 100 ml), at meal time or right after meal.
Capsules of 50 mg: appoint the adult on 1 capsule in the morning, during the lunchtime and in the evening.
The recommended dose at treatment of a pseudorheumatism – 1 capsule each 6 hours. The maximum daily dose makes 200 mg.
In order to avoid undesirable side effects the patient can accept antiacid means along with Ketonalom®.
Duration of treatment is defined by the doctor.
At patients with not heavy renal failure with clearance of creatinine is lower 20ml/mines and with a chronic disease of a liver (with the reduced level of albumine in blood serum) it is necessary to reduce a ketoprofen dose.

Side effects
At assessment of frequency of emergence of different side reactions were used such gradation: ‘it is very frequent’ – ³ 10%, is ‘frequent’ – from ³ 1% to & lt, 10%, ‘infrequently’ – from ³ 0.1% to & lt, 1%, is ‘rare’ – from ³ 0.01% to & lt, 0.1%, ‘it is very rare’ – & lt, 0.01%.

Medicinal interactions
Ketonal it is not necessary to apply digestive tract diseases in an aggravation phase (gastritis, a peptic ulcer of a stomach, the instruction in the anamnesis on gastrointestinal bleedings, education or a perforation of ulcers) to ketoprofen, aspirin or other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug in combination with other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and salicylates.
At the combined use with corticosteroids the risk of formation of ulcers and gastrointestinal bleeding increases.
Antioagulyanta (heparin and warfarin) and inhibitors of aggregation of thrombocytes (i.e. tiklopidin, klopidogrel) increase risk of developing of bleeding. If joint reception is inevitable, careful observation of the patient is necessary.
The ketocash reduces efficiency hypotensive and diuretics. Risk of developing a renal failure is more at patients who accept diuretics, antihypertensives or APF inhibitors along with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs.
Potassium drugs, kaliysberegayushchy diuretics, APF inhibitors, heparins (low molecular weight or undivided on fraction), cyclosporine, takrolimus and Trimethoprimum at simultaneous use with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs can promote emergence of a hyperpotassemia.
The ketocash strengthens effect of oral glucose-lowering drugs and some anticonvulsants (Phenytoinum).
The ketocash, as well as other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs reduces removal and by that increases toxicity of cardiac glycosides, lithium, cyclosporine and a methotrexate.
Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs can reduce efficiency of mifepristone. Reception nonsteroid anti-inflammatory needs to be begun not earlier than in 8-12 days after mifepristone cancellation.
At simultaneous use of cyclosporine with a ketocash the risk of toxic damage of kidneys increases.

Special instructions
It is necessary to avoid simultaneous use of Ketonal with other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, including selection TsOG-2 inhibitors.
With extra care patients should appoint drug with digestive tract diseases in the anamnesis (bleeding and perforation can suddenly develop without the previous symptoms).
It is necessary to be careful also at the patients taking medicine which can increase risk of formation of ulcers or bleeding, such as corticosteroids of oral introduction, anticoagulants (for example warfarin), selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors or antiagregantny means (including acetylsalicylic acid). The risk of developing of gastrointestinal bleeding, formation or a perforation of ulcers increases with increase in doses of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. In such cases it is necessary to consider combination therapy with the drugs having protective effect on digestive tract (for example, mizoprostol or inhibitors of a protonew pomp).
Patients with digestive tract diseases (especially to elderly people) should report to the attending physician about any abdominal manifestations.
In case of developing of gastrointestinal bleeding or ulceration of digestive tract, it is necessary to stop treatment immediately.
Careful observation of patients with arterial hypertension and/or stagnant heart failure as there are messages about development or strengthening of a delay of liquid in an organism during therapy by ketoprofen is necessary.
During treatment, ketoprofen recommends monitoring of arterial blood pressure, especially at patients with cardiovascular diseases.
Patients with uncontrollable arterial hypertension, acute and heavy chronic heart failure, coronary heart disease, diseases peripheral arteries and/or cerebrovascular diseases should carry out treatment by ketoprofen with care. Use of some non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs can be connected with risk of developing arterial thromboses (myocardial infarction, a stroke). Data for an exception of such risk for ketoprofen are not enough.
At patients with asthma, with chronic rhinitis, chronic sinusitis and/or a nasal polipoz, emergence of allergic reactions is possible more often than at other patients.
It is also necessary to be careful at patients with disturbances of a hemostasis, hemophilia, an angiohemophilia – Jürgens, heavy thrombocytopenia, a renal or liver failure and at those patients who accept anticoagulants (coumarin and derivatives of heparin, first of all heparins of low molecular weight).
In an initiation of treatment it is necessary to carry out careful monitoring of renal function at patients with heart failure, cirrhosis and a nephrosis, at the patients undergoing diuretic therapy at patients with chronic kidney disease, especially if the patient at advanced age. Intake of ketoprofen can cause decrease in a renal blood-groove as a result of inhibition of prostaglandin in such patients and lead to a renal decompensation.
If during treatment visual disturbances are observed, treatment should be stopped.
Treatment by ketoprofen should be stopped before performing radical surgical interventions.
Intake of ketoprofen can worsen female fertility and is not recommended for women who want to become pregnant.
This medicine contains ethanol of 12.3% (in / c). Each dose of 2 ml contains 0.2 g of ethanol.
With care people of advanced age should appoint drug.
Long courses of therapy by non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, including ketoprofen, demand monitoring of hematologic indicators, indicators of function of a liver and kidneys, in particular from elderly patients.
The feature of influence of medicine on ability to run the vehicle or potentially dangerous mechanisms
in case of developing of dizziness, a spatial disorientation, drowsiness, out-of-focus sight or spasms should not conduct transport or to operate potentially dangerous mechanisms.

Symptoms: nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, vomiting blood, black chair, consciousness disturbance, respiratory depression, spasms, renal failure and renal failure.
Treatment: symptomatic, specific antidote does not exist. Gastric lavage and use of activated carbon is shown. Impact of ketoprofen on digestive tract can be weakened by means of H2 blockers, inhibitors of a proton pomp and prostaglandins.
