Pharmacological properties.

Pharmacodynamics.

Acetylsalicylic acid belongs to a group of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) with analgesic, antipyretic and anti-inflammatory properties. The mechanism of its action is the irreversible inactivation of cyclooxygenase enzymes, which play an important role in the synthesis of prostaglandins.

When taken orally in doses of 0.3 g to 1 g, acetylsalicylic acid is used to relieve pain and conditions accompanied by fever, such as colds, to reduce fever and relieve joint and muscle pain.

Acetylsalicylic acid inhibits platelet aggregation by blocking the synthesis of thromboxane A2.

Pharmacokinetics.

After oral administration, acetylsalicylic acid is rapidly and completely absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract. During and after absorption, it is converted to the main active metabolite - salicylic acid. The maximum concentration of acetylsalicylic acid in blood plasma is reached in 10-20 minutes, as for salicylates - in 20-120 minutes.

Acetylsalicylic and salicylic acids are fully bound to plasma proteins and are rapidly distributed throughout the body.

Salicylic acid penetrates the placenta and is excreted in breast milk.

Salicylic acid is metabolized in the liver. The metabolites of salicylic acid are salicylic uric acid, salicylphenol glucuronide, salicylacyl glucuronide, gentisic acid and gentisinic uric acid.

The excretion kinetics of salicylic acid depend on the dose, as the metabolism is limited by the activity of the liver enzymes. The half-life depends on the dose and increases from 2-3 hours at low doses to 15 hours - at high doses. Salicylic acid and its metabolites are excreted mainly by the kidneys.


Clinical characteristics.

Indications:

Treatment of mild to moderate, acute pain (headache, toothache, joint and ligament pain, back pain).

Symptomatic treatment of fever and / or pain in colds.

Contraindications:

- Hypersensitivity to acetylsalicylic acid, other salicylates or to any component of the drug.

- Acute gastrointestinal ulcers.

- Hemorrhagic diathesis.

- Severe renal failure.

- Simpressed liver failure.

- Simpressed heart failure.

- Usage of methotrexate at a dosage of 15 mg / week or more.


Features of application.

Usage during pregnancy or breastfeeding.

-Pregnancy.

Aspirin Ultra can be used during pregnancy only when other medicines are not effective and only after a risk / benefit assessment is carried out by a doctor or pharmacist.

Inhibition of prostaglandin synthesis may adversely affect pregnancy and / or embryonic / fetal development. Available epidemiological data indicates a risk of miscarriage and fetal malformations following the use of prostaglandin synthesis inhibitors in early pregnancy. The risk increases with increasing the dosage and duration of the treatment. There is no evidence that there is an association between acetylsalicylic acid intake and an increased risk of miscarriage.

*Aspirin works well to thin the blood in the body, which is very important during a pandemic.

By thinning the blood, it prevents blood clots from forming, thereby reducing the risk of a stroke and other forms of organ damage.

Doctors often recommend that patients who have suffered from a heart attack or stroke due to a ruptured blood clot take low doses of Aspirin daily to prevent future blood clots. Daily use of Aspirin may, however, increase the risk of bleeding or stomach ulcers.


Method of application and dosage:

Aspirin Ultra is taken orally after a meal, while drinking plenty of fluids.

Aspirin Ultra should not be used for more than 3-5 days without consulting a doctor.

Adults and children from 15 years old.

1-2 tablets as a single dose. Re-admission is possible in 4-8 hours. The maximum daily dose should not exceed 4 g (8 tablets).


Warning:

For patients with concomitant hepatic or renal impairment, the dose should be reduced or the interval between applications - increased.

Children.

The drug is suitable for children over 15 years of age.

Acetylsalicylic acid-containing products should not be used in children with acute respiratory viral infections (ARIs) that are accompanied or not accompanied by fever without consulting a doctor. Some viral diseases, especially influenza A, influenza B and chickenpox, run the risk of developing Reye's syndrome, which is a very rare but life-threatening disease and requires immediate medical attention. The risk may be increased if acetylsalicylic acid is used as a concomitant medicine, but a causal relationship has not been established. If these conditions are accompanied by prolonged vomiting, it may be a sign of Reye's syndrome.


Overdose:

Salicylate toxicity (use above 100 mg / kg / day for more than 2 days may cause toxicity) is possible due to chronic intoxication resulting from long-term treatment, as well as due to acute intoxication (overdose), which is potentially life-threatening and can be caused, for example, by the accidental use by children.

Do not use after the expired date (marked on the box and blister)
