Glutargin Alkoclean is a drug based on arginine and glutamic acid that is intended to increase metabolism. Arginine plays an important role in cell division, wound healing, removing ammonia from the body, immune function, and the release of hormones. Glutamic acid is an excitatory neurotransmitter in the vertebrate nervous system. It serves as the precursor for the synthesis of the inhibitory gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) in GABA-ergic neurons. Glutargin Alkoclean has cytoprotective, antihypoxic, membrane stabilizing, antioxidant, detoxication, antiradical and hepatoprotective effects. It increases the levels of glucagon, insulin, somatotropin and prolactin in the blood and takes part in the synthesis of polyamine, proline and agmatine, spermatogenesis and fibrinolysis.Glutargin Alkoclean helps fight alcohol intoxication. By increasing the production of succinic acid, it stimulates alcohol processing in the liver monooxygenase system, and ethanol detoxication. Glutamic acid lowers the depressant effect of alcohol on the CNS.
Active ingredients: arginine glutamate 1 g and glycine 500 mg. Inactive ingredients: lemon flavor 50 mg, aspartame 60 mg, citric acid 600 mg and mannitol 790 mg.
Dosage and administration
To be administered orally. Mix the contents of 1 sachet with a 1/2 glass of water.
For prevention of alcohol intoxication: 2 sachets 1-2 hours before the intake of alcohol or 1 sachet 1 hour before the intake of alcohol and 1 sachet 30 minutes after it.
For treatment of alcohol intoxication: 1 sachet 4 times a day on the first day and 1 sachet 2 times a day for the next 2-3 days.
To be administered with caution in patients with:
Epigastric pain or nausea right after the intake of the drug, which go away on their own.
Glutargin Alkoclean increases the volume of endogenous insulin in the blood when co-administered with aminophylline.
Glutargin Alkoclean may enhance the effect of antiplatelet drugs such as dipyridamole, and lower the effect of vinblastine. It also prevents and lowers neurotoxic effect of isoniazid.
