Polyoxidonium is a medicine intended for stimulating the immune system. Its active ingredient is azoximer bromide (copolymer N-oxide 1,4-ethylene piperazine and (N- carboxymethyl)-1,4-ethylene piperazinium bromide).
Polyoxidonium has a complex effect as it is an immunomodulator with detoxifying and antioxidant properties. It restores immunity and detoxifies, thus improving patients’ general condition as well as reducing the risk of developing complications.
Polyoxidonium in intranasal form can be used in children from six months of age, which proves its safety.
