Pharmacodynamics. A clinical effect of Pantogam activ® is related to a presence in its structure gamma-aminobutyric acid that directly interacts with the GABAb-receptor canal complex. Pantogam activ® is a racemic mix of equal quantities of the R-form of hopantenic acid and its S-isomer. An isomer presence improves a transport and interaction of the drug with GABA receptor. Pantogam activ® has a more prominent nootropic and anti-convulsive action that gopantenic acid preparations of the first generation.
Pantogam activ® increases a brain resistance to hypoxia and effects of toxic compounds, stimulates anabolic processes in neurons, combines a moderate sedative action with a soft stimulating effect. It has an anti-asthenic and a slight anxiolytic effect, decreases a motoric excitability, collates a behavior, activates a mental activity and workability, produces a braking of pathologically increased bladder reflex and a detrusor tone.
