other hypnotics and sedatives. THE ATC - N05CM09.
Vegetable remedy. It has a sedative effect. The action is due to the content of essential oils (0.2 - 2.8%), most of which are the ester of borneol and izovalerianovoy acid, borneol acetate. Important components of the medicine are also contained in Valerian extract sekswitharpena and monoterpenes: ?-caryophyllene, valeranone, valerenal, valeric acid, and valepotriates (0,05-0,67%) – ultrat and isovalerate. The main products of the degradation of valepotriates are baldrian, homebuilding and ultracal. Valerian extract increases the sensitivity of GABA receptors (gamma-aminobutyric acid receptors) to the effects of ?-aminobutyric acid, which increases inhibition processes in the cerebral cortex. At the same time, there is an increase in the synthesis and secretion of GABA in the synapses of neurons of the cerebral cortex. This effect manifests itself only under the influence of the amount of substances contained in Valerian extract and may not be reproduced with isolated introduction of essential oil, sekswitharpena or valepotriates. Sedative effects when using the drug is slow, but quite stable and fully developed only in a systematic and long course of treatment. Reduces the rate of reaction to external stimuli, facilitates the onset of natural sleep. Valepotriates and valeric acid possess antispasmodic action, have easy choleretic effect, especially when spasm and hypermotor biliary dyskinesia. The complex of biologically active substances Valerian extract through neurohumoral mechanisms and influence on the conducting system of the myocardium regulates cardiac activity – slows the heart rhythm, slightly expands the coronary vessels.
Pharmacokinetics Valerian tablets extract studied poorly, due to the impossibility of accurate identification of the effective beginning of the drug. After ingestion of 600 mg of dry extract of Valerian, the maximum concentration of valeric acid (one of the likely active ingredients) is achieved through 1-2 h and is 0.9-2.3 ng/ml.the half – elimination Period is 1.1 ± 0.6 h. with repeated use of the drug, its pharmacokinetics does not change.
