 Mildronat - guide
 Mildronat - a drug that improves metabolic processes, including energy supply of cells and organs. He has found application in the treatment of various diseases of the heart, brain, visual disturbances, and many other diseases, as well as intense physical and mental stress.

 Mildronat - Drug Usage

The mechanism of action mildronata

Mildronat (meldonium) produces well-known Baltic pharmaceutical company "Grindeks". It is available in capsules and syrups for oral administration to adults and children and a solution for injection. Mildronat refers to a group of drugs that enhance metabolism Improves metabolism and losing weight without dieting  Improves metabolism and losing weight without dieting
   energy and textiles.

The mechanism of drug action based on that mildronat inhibits activity of certain enzymes, resulting in suspended delivery through cell membranes of long chain fatty acids and thus prevents the accumulation in the cells of toxic oxygenated derivatives of fatty acids. In the context of a lack of oxygen in tissues mildronat restores the balance between oxygen delivery and consumption in the cells, eliminates violations of transportation of ATP (an energy source), while activating other energy source - glycolysis (breakdown of glucose Glucose: The energy source  Glucose: The energy source
   to produce energy), which is carried out without oxygen consumption.

At high physical stress occurs consuming large amounts of energy in the cells of the healthy organism is a temporary decrease in the content of fatty acids, and as soon as the load reduces, the fatty acids accumulate in the cells again. Mildronat coached cells, forcing them to adapt to the process, resulting in trained cells survive where untrained die, for example, in a lack of oxygen in ischemic heart disease.

Mildronat has the following properties:

  • cardioprotective - protects myocardial cells, carrying out distribution of blood flow to ischemic foci in its tissue, slows down the process of necrosis (dying off) myocardial tissue shortens the rehabilitation period after myocardial infarction; heart failure it causes the myocardium to contract more efficiently; increases the tolerance of the myocardium of physical activity, reduces the frequency of angina attacks;
  • It protects against damage to brain cells in acute and chronic disorders of cerebral circulation by improving blood circulation in the hearth of circulatory disorders;
  • protects the cells in the fundus with compromised circulation and metabolism in the art;
  • eliminating the accumulation of toxic products of metabolism in the cells of various organs, protecting them from damage;
  • under heavy load it restores the balance between the delivery of oxygen to tissues and cells need it
  • increases efficiency, reduces the symptoms of mental and physical fatigue;
  • regulates cellular immunity;
  • reduces the effects of a hangover (abstitentsii) in alcoholism by eliminating the disorders of the central and autonomic nervous system.

After intake of mildronat enters the blood and tissues, a field which breaks down into metabolites, and in three or six o'clock excreted by the kidneys.

  • vascular disorders of the inner ear, resulting in may occur total or partial loss of hearing or develop severe labirintopatiya with bouts of dizziness, nausea, vomiting, decreased blood pressure on a background of progressive hearing loss (Meniere's disease);
  • vascular disorders retina and choroid of the organ of vision, which may threaten the decrease or loss of vision.
