Aspargin x 50 tablets
Aspargin contains a well-absorbed mixture of magnesium salt and potassium aspartic acid. Magnesium is an activator of many enzymes, it mediates the production and transport of energy in the body. It is necessary in the activities of the heart muscle, nervous system, vascular smooth muscle and striated muscles. Magnesium deficiency increases the risk of coronary artery disease, heart attack and arrhythmias. Symptoms of magnesium deficiency are: hyperactivity, difficulty concentrating, increased susceptibility to stress, skeletal muscle disorders. Potassium participates in the functions of the nervous and cardiovascular systems and in neuromuscular conduction. Potassium deficiency is a threat to the proper functioning of the circulatory system, excretory system and regulation of water and electrolyte balance (responsible for maintaining normal blood pressure and acidity). Aspartic acid is involved in the transmission of stimuli in the central nervous system.
1 tablet contains:
magnesium hydrogen aspartate (tetrahydrate) 250 mg (equivalent to 17 mg magnesium);
potassium hydrogen aspartate (hemihydrate) 250 mg (equivalent to 54 mg potassium).
Excipients: potato starch, sucrose , ultraamylopectin, magnesium stearate, talc.
Unless your doctor tells you otherwise, on average, take 1 to 2 tablets 2 to 3 times a day, orally, after a meal, which corresponds to 108 mg to 324 mg of potassium per day and 34 mg to 102 mg of magnesium per day.
Supplementing magnesium and potassium deficiency (when intravenous administration is not necessary):
- for abnormalities and hyperactivity of the heart - especially against a background of magnesium and potassium deficiency;
- prophylactically in coronary heart disease, in the event of a heart attack;
- in post-infarction convalescence;
- after illnesses infectious or surgical procedures that have lost magnesium and potassium;
- as a medicine to counteract the adverse effects of long-term use of cardiac glycosides and diuretics (e.g. thiazides).
This medicine is not intended for use in children under 12 years of age.
Do not use Aspargin if you have:
hypersensitivity to any component of the preparation, hypermagnesemia, hyperkalemia (excess magnesium or potassium in the blood), severe renal failure (creatinine clearance less than 30 ml / min), atrioventricular conduction disturbances (block), bradycardia (slow heartbeat), myasthenia gravis (a rare disease accompanied by sagging muscle), significant hypotension.
Side effects h4>
Like all medicines, Aspargin can cause side effects.
This medicine may cause AV conduction disorders ( heart rate). Sometimes, after using the drug, nausea and diarrhea may occur, which usually disappear spontaneously, as well as redness of the skin, insomnia, muscle weakness. If you get serious side effects, talk to your doctor. Some people may get other side effects while taking Aspargin. If you get any other side effects not listed in this leaflet, please inform your doctor.
< strong> Warnings and precautions
Interaction with other drugs:
The drug should not be administered simultaneously with phosphates and calcium compounds, because the magnesium it contains shows antagonism to these compounds. Magnesium salts reduce the absorption of some antibiotics, e.g. tetracyclines; There should be at least a 3-hour interval between administration of these drugs. Magnesium reduces the absorption of iron, fluorine, fluoroquinolone and oral coumarin anticoagulants. Digitalis glycosides (cardiac medicines) used in combination with potassium may lead to cardiac arrhythmias. The drug should not be used simultaneously with atropine or hyoscyamine, as the risk of intestinal ulceration, which is possible withpotassium salts. Diuretics (amiloride, spironolactone, triamterene) and angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors (drugs used in cardiovascular disease, e.g. captopril and enalapril) cause an increase in potassium in the blood. Cortisone reduces the effects of potassium. Potassium contained in the preparation reduces the absorption of vitamin B12.
