Pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics

The medicine Radedormum 5 is a hypnagogue and belongs to group of benzodiazepines. Efficiency of drug is shown thanks to the central anticonvulsant, myorelaxation and anksiolitichesky effect of its active component – nitrazepam.

Nitrazepam, contacting a characteristic benzodiazepine complex of receptors GAMK-benzodiazepin-hlorionofornogo of a row, provokes its start, increases sensitivity to media even system, initiates activation of an ion channel and increases the braking impact of GAMK on TsNS. Effects of nitrazepam lead to lowering of cellular excitability in a cerebellum, bark and subcrustal regions of a brain (a thalamus, limbic system, a hypothalamus), and also in other departments of TsNS.

Somnolent efficiency of Radedormum is shown thanks to suppression of a cellular complex of a reticular formation in a brain trunk that leads to reduction of influence of the emotional, motor and vegetative irritating factors breaking backfilling processes. Effect of nitrazepam directionally on increase in duration and depth of a dream, and also on normal physiological regulation of mechanisms of backfilling and awakening.

Nitrazepam absorption, at its internal reception, takes place quickly enough and fully. When using a dose of 5 mg plasma Cmax is observed in a period from 38 to 120 minutes and 40-68 ng/ml equal. Parallel meal brakes and reduces plasma Cmax to 30%. Communication with plasma proteins is carried out for 85-88%, bioavailability equals 54-98%.

Nitrazepam possesses a variable phase of distribution, depending on specific features, the component is from 1,7 to 3,5 hours old.

About 25-30 hours are characterized by slow hepatic elimination, with T1/2. In an invariable form kidneys remove only 1% of drug.
