METADOXIL

$ 55.00$ 60.00

Metadoxil is a drug used for the treatment of alcohol intoxication. Recent clinical studies also suggest that it can be used as a non-stimulant ADHD medication. Metadoxil is a salt of pyridoxine (vitamin B6 form) and pyrrolidone carboxylate. The drug does promote the metabolic degradation of ethanol and restore the functional state of the liver, thus decreasing the toxic effect of alcohol on the brain and body.

MEXIDOL ® (Emoxypine)

$ 11.00$ 22.00

Mexidol is a unique development of the Russian pharmaceutical industry. Due to the universal mechanism of action and a wide range of pharmacological effects, Mexidol is effective in the treatment of acute and chronic diseases caused by ischemia and hypoxia of various origins. Nowadays the drug is widely used in neurology, therapy, cardiology, psychiatry and narcology. Mexidol is produced at leading pharmaceutical manufacturing sites in the Russian Federation, which operate in accordance with GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) production and quality control standards.    

MILDRONATE ® (Meldonium)

$ 15.00$ 33.00

Mildronate is used to treat angina, myocardial failure and reduce alcohol withdrawal symptoms. Off-label use of Meldonuim in otherwise healthy individuals includes increasing exercise tolerance, learning, memory, and sexual function.

A perfect alternative for the discontinued Ladasten (Bromantane)

NALTREXONE

$ 4.50$ 40.00

Naltrexone is an opioid antagonist and primarily used to manage alcohol or opioid dependence. It reduces the effect of opioid analgesics (analgesic, antidiarrheal, antitussive); eliminates the side effects of opioids (including endogenous ones), with the exception of the symptoms caused by the histamine response. In alcoholism, it binds to opioid receptors and blocks the effects of endorphins. A low dose of naltrexone (up to 4.5 mg per day taken orally) is recommended by some doctors for use in autoimmune diseases such as Crohn's disease and multiple sclerosis.

PHENIBUT ®

$ 10.00$ 11.00

Phenibut® is a derivative of the naturally occurring inhibitory neurotransmitter GABA, which can cross the blood-brain barrier much better than the original compound. Unlike usual tranqualizers, Phenibut® has both psychostimulating and anxiety reducing effects.

Picamilon is based on a synthetic combination of GABA and niacin, with the former being responsible for reducing neuronal excitability and the latter acting as a strong vasodilator. Its effects are similar to those of Phenibut, as both drugs reduce anxiety and improve mood. However, unlike Phenibut, Picamilon has a much stronger impact on energy metabolism in the brain because it stimulates the consumption of oxygen and glucose by neuronal tissue.

PIRACETAM

$ 6.00$ 8.00

It has been more than 40 years since Cornelia E. Giurgea - a Romanian chemist - synthesized a compound that was "capable of selectively influencing integrative mechanisms of the brain”. This chemical compound was Piracetam, which later appeared on the market under the brand name Nootropil®, simultaneously giving birth to a whole range of pharmaceuticals which we now call nootropics.

Riboxin (Inosine) is a metabolic agent, a precursor of adenosine triphosphate (ATP). Inosine is an important nucleoside that is essential for proper translation of the genetic code in wobble base pairs. It provides antihypoxic, metabolic and antiarrhythmic effect. It increases the energy balance of the myocardium, improves the coronary blood flow and prevents consequences of intraoperative renal ischemia. The drug participates in the glucose metabolism and promotes metabolism activation under hypoxia and in the absence of ATP.

TABEX ® (Cytisine)

$ 13.00$ 29.00

Tabex is a innovative mean of quitting smoking, as its active component, Cytisine, interacts with the same receptors as Nicotine does. It alleviates abstinence syndromes (bad mood, irritability, headache, etc) and can tremendously increase the likelihood of staying nicotine-free for the first days of abstinence.

Tiolepta is an endogenous antioxidant that binds free radicals and stabilizes lipid and carbohydrate metabolism. It has hepatoprotective, lipid-lowering, hypocholesterolemic and hypoglycemic properties. Thioctic acid (alpha-lipoic acid), its main component, is an antioxidant that is widely used as a dietary supplement and as a pharmaceutical drug. Alpha-lipoic acid is most commonly used to treat diabetes and nerve-related symptoms of diabetes including burning, pain and numbness in the legs and arms.
