BIOTREDIN [L-threonine + Vitamin B6]
Biotredin is a nootropic medication for improving metabolism and boosts cellular energy. The drug is comprised of L-threonine and pyridoxine hydrochloride (vitamin B6). Together, threonine and vitamin B6 interact to form amino acid glycine and acetaldehyde.
The resulting substance promotes active stimulation of inhibitory processes, oxidation-reduction, and supports respiratory function, and synthesis of adenosine triphosphate in the cells. Although Biotredin is capable of treating psychological strain and stress, it is not a sedative.
- Concentration problems and poor task performance in children and young adults;
- Treating various stages of alcoholism;
- Managing symptoms of withdrawal syndrome in patients with alcohol dependency;
- Irritability and depression;
- Treatment during remission.
A single tablet contains 0.1 g threonine and 0.005 g of pyridoxine hydrochloride + inactive ingredients (citric acid, povidone and magnesium stearate).
Pharmacodynamics and Pharmacokinetics
After placing the tablet under the tongue, the body absorbs L-threonine and pyridoxine into the blood. Threonine is then broken down into glycine and acetaldehyde (pyridoxine works as a catalyser). Acetic acid and glycine stimulate the synthesis of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) in cells, redox, and cellular respiration.
Dosage and administration
Tablets are to be crushed or administered sublingually.
To increase productivity and concentration: take three tablets a day for one week to 10 days. Patients may repeat this course of treatment four times a year.
For treating alcoholism: 1-3 tablets, to be taken three times a day over the course of five days. Patients may repeat the course of treatment ten times a year.
For withdrawal syndrome: 3-4 tablets, to be taken in the first 24 hours. After this, two tablets taken three times a day. The course of treatment should last 10-28 days.
According to the instructions for Biotredin, it is most effective when taken along with glycine.
- hypersensitivity to vitamin B6;
- alcohol intoxication;
- simultaneous administration of anxiolytics, antipsychotics, antidepressants.
