Ethoxidol is a combination drug that inhibits free radical processes and has antioxidant, membrane-protective, anti-hypoxic, nootropic, anticonvulsant, anxiolytic, and stress-protective effects.

Ethoxidol was shown to be more effective than Mexidol in cardiac antiarrhythmic effects, while other effects were very similar.

Apart from that, it should be noted that Ethoxidol contains other active ingredients such as dimethylethanolamine (DMAE), N-Acetyl-DL-glutamic acid, and glycine.
