Description of the medicine: Avisanum (Avisanum)
A preparation containing the sum of substances from the fruits of the plant Ammi Dental (Ammi visnaga L.), fam. Umbrella (Umbiliferae).
Yellow-brown amorphous powder of bitter taste, with a faint peculiar odor. Very soluble in water and 95% alcohol, soluble in 50-60% alcohol. Hygroscopic.
It contains up to 8% of the sum of chromones, as well as a small amount of furocoumarins and flavones. Like kellin, isolated from dental ammonia and related to furochromones, avisan has antispasmodic properties; however, according to available observations, this drug has a more selective antispasmodic effect on the smooth muscles of the ureters.
It is proposed for use as an antispasmodic for renal colic and spasms of the ureters; the drug reduces or relieves pain in patients with renal colic and promotes the promotion and discharge of ureter stones. Previously, it was found that tincture of Ammi dental has such an effect. In acute and chronic cystitis, Avisan helps to reduce dysuric phenomena. The drug can also be used as an antispasmodic to facilitate catheterization of the ureters. It is taken orally at 0.05-0.1 g (1-2 tablets) 3-4 times a day after meals. The course of treatment is 1 to 3 weeks.
To facilitate the removal of stones from the urinary tract, it is recommended that a large amount of liquid be prescribed to the patient at the same time as Avisan. In the absence of contraindications from the cardiovascular system and kidneys, the patient drinks within 2 - 3 hours 1, 5 - 2 l of water or tea. This technique is repeated after a few days. The patient should be under the supervision of a doctor.
Avisan is generally well tolerated. In some cases, dyspeptic symptoms are observed, especially with diseases of the gastrointestinal tract. With a decrease in dose, side effects disappear.
