Pharmacological effect

Metabolic drug. Thioctic (α-lipoic) acid is found in the human body, where it acts as a coenzyme in the reactions of oxidative phosphorylation of pyruvic acid and alpha-keto acids. Thioctic acid is an endogenous antioxidant, according to the biochemical mechanism of action, it is close to the vitamins of group B. Thioctic acid contributes to the protection of cells from the toxic effects of free radicals that occur in metabolic processes; it also neutralizes exogenous toxic compounds that have entered the body. Thioctic acid increases the concentration of the endogenous antioxidant glutathione, which leads to a decrease in the severity of symptoms of polyneuropathy. The drug has a hepatoprotective, hypolipidemic, hypocholesterolemic, hypoglycemic effect; improves trophism of neurons. The result of the synergistic effect of thioctic acid and insulin is an increase in glucose utilization.

Pharmacokinetics

Absorption When taking the drug Thioctacid BV (rapid release) inside, thioctic acid is rapidly and completely absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract. Simultaneous food intake can reduce the absorption of the drug. Cmax in plasma is reached 30 minutes after administration and is 4 μg / ml. The absolute bioavailability of thioctic acid is 20%.

Overdose

Symptoms: when taking thioctic (α-lipoic) acid in a dose of 10 g to 40 g, serious signs of intoxication (generalized convulsive seizures; marked CSR disorders (leading to lactic acidosis), hypoglycemic coma, severe bleeding disorders, sometimes leading to lethal outcome).

Interaction with other drugs

With the simultaneous appointment of thioctic acid and cisplatin, there is a decrease in the effectiveness of cisplatin. Thioctic (α-lipoic) acid binds metals, therefore, it should not be administered simultaneously with preparations containing metals (for example, preparations of iron, magnesium, calcium). If BV Thioctacid is taken 30 minutes before breakfast, then preparations containing iron or magnesium can be taken day or evening. When using thioctic acid and insulin or oral hypoglycemic drugs at the same time, their effect may be enhanced, therefore regular monitoring of blood glucose is recommended, especially at the beginning of thioctic acid therapy.In some cases, it is possible to reduce the dose of hypoglycemic drugs in order to avoid the development of symptoms of hypoglycemia. Ethanol and its metabolites weaken the action of thioctic acid.

special instructions

Treatment of diabetic polyneuropathy should be carried out against the background of maintaining an optimal concentration of glucose in the blood. Due to the fact that thioctic acid binds metals, and pills Tioctacid BV taken 30 minutes before breakfast, preparations containing metals should be taken at lunch or in the evening. For the same reason, during the treatment period with BV Thioctacid, the consumption of dairy products is recommended only in the second half of the day.
