Metamizole Sodium... 500 mg
|Action||Metamizole is an antipyretic from the antipyrine (pyrazolone) group. It possesses pronounced analgesic, antifebrile, anti-inflammatory, antineuralgic, antirheumatic, spasmolytic and sedative properties. It eliminates the spasms of the forestomachs and regulates their motor function. It does not suppress the intestinal peristalsis. |
Metamizole restricts the inflammatory edema. It is well tolerated by animals.
In pharmacokinetic terms metamizole is a typical precursor. After oral administration it is quickly hydrolyzed in the gastrointestinal tract to the active compound 4-methylaminoantipyrin.
