Drug Interaction

Glutargin Alkoclean increases the volume of endogenous insulin in the blood when co-administered with aminophylline.

Glutargin Alkoclean may enhance the effect of antiplatelet drugs such as dipyridamole, and lower the effect of vinblastine. It also prevents and lowers neurotoxic effect of isoniazid.

Store at a temperature not higher than 25 °C (77 °F).

Keep out of the reach of children.

Shelf life is 2 years.

Glutargin Alkoclean is a drug based on arginine and glutamic acid that is intended to increase metabolism. Both arginine and glutamic acid are α-amino acids used in the biosynthesis of proteins. Arginine is classified as a semiessential or conditionally essential amino acid, depending on the developmental stage and health status of the individual. Arginine plays an important role in cell division, wound healing, removing ammonia from the body, immune function, and the release of hormones. It is a precursor for the synthesis of nitric oxide (NO), making it important in the regulation of blood pressure. Glutamic acid is an excitatory neurotransmitter in the vertebrate nervous system. It serves as the precursor for the synthesis of the inhibitory gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) in GABA-ergic neurons. 

Glutargin Alkoclean has cytoprotective, antihypoxic, membrane stabilizing, antioxidant, detoxication and antiradical effects. It increases the levels of glucagon, insulin, somatotropin and prolactin in the blood and takes part in the synthesis of polyamine, proline and agmatine, spermatogenesis and fibrinolysis. It also causes depolarization of the membrane. Glutargin Alkoclean has hepatoprotective effect as it stabilizes energy metabolism in hepatocytes. It also prevents the development of atherosclerosis and stimulates thymus. It stabilizes the acid-alkaline balance.

Glutargin Alkoclean helps fight alcohol intoxication. By increasing the production of succinic acid, it stimulates alcohol processing in the liver monooxygenase system, and ethanol detoxication. Glutamic acid lowers the depressant effect of alcohol on the CNS.


  • Prevention and treatment of alcohol intoxication;
  • Lowering hepatotoxic effect of alcohol;
  • As part of complex therapy of disorders caused by acute alcohol intoxication.
