What Constitutes tsitramona II and how it works

Citramon - a combination product, which originally consisted of: atsitilsalitsilovaya acid (aspirin), phenacetin and caffeine. But due to the fact that phenacetin has many undesirable side effects (especially on the kidneys and liver), he was taken out of production and replaced in tsitramon entered paracetamol, and the drug was called tsitramon P.

Citramon P - is the combined analgesic and antipyretic action which determines its constituent drugs:

  • acetylsalicylic acid (aspirin) - nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), anti-inflammatory, antipyretic, analgesic and prevents blood clots action; However, there are a number of negative properties: it means vysokoallergennoe strongly irritates the mucous membranes of the gastrointestinal tract;
  • acetaminophen - a pain reliever and fever reducer, belonging to the same series as the phenacetin removed from production, but with fewer side effects; However, with prolonged use, particularly at high doses, it can have toxic effects on the kidneys and liver;
  • Caffeine - a stimulant of mental activity has a strong stimulating effect on the central nervous system, reduces fatigue and drowsiness; in large doses resulting in the depletion of neural cells; under the influence of caffeine quickens breathing and heart, thereby increasing blood pressure (BP), but also the expansion of the blood vessels in skeletal muscle, heart and kidney smooth out this effect and, in general significant rise in blood pressure is not observed; blood vessels of the abdomen and brain are narrowed, especially when their long-term expansion - which is why caffeine helps with migraine attack is accompanied by a sharp expansion of the blood vessels of the brain; headache Caffeine increases the effects of painkillers.
