Due to the fact that Actovegin repeatedly improves the delivery of oxygen and glucose to tissues, it is used in the treatment of those diseases and pathological conditions in which the normal nutrition and oxygen supply of cells is disturbed - that is, in diseases involving ischemia.

Pregnancy and lactation
During pregnancy, Actovegin is prescribed quite often, because it stimulates the blood supply to the placenta, and serves as prevention of fetal hypoxia. Despite the physiology of the composition of the drug and the absence of contraindications for its reception during pregnancy and lactation, they can be treated only on prescription and if there are serious grounds for that. Self-treatment with Actovegin in order to prevent complications of pregnancy is unacceptable!
Sometimes Actovegin can provoke the development of allergic reactions in the form of urticaria, redness of the skin, increase in body temperature. In rare cases, taking the drug may trigger the development of anaphylactic shock.
Extremely rare side effects from taking Actovegin can be:

To avoid an allergy to Actovegin, it is necessary to carry out a drug test: at the first dose, use only 1 tablet and carefully monitor the changes in your well-being over the next few hours. If any worsening symptoms develop, it is better to stop taking the drug.

Pharmacological properties of the drug are not fully studied, because it contains natural ingredients - protein-free blood extract of calves. Therefore, the absorption of the tableted Actovegin and its excretion from the body are similar to the physiological processes of digestion.
Within half an hour after entering the digestive tract, the drug begins to exert its antihypoxic effect, which is maximally manifested in 3-4 hours.
Actovegin stimulates the consumption of oxygen and glucose by cells and tissues, increases their antioxidant activity and resistance to damaging factors, and increases the concentration of amino acids and energy carriers in cells.
Tableted Actovegin should be stored at room temperature to 20 0 , in a dark and dry place. Shelf life is indicated on the packaging. Prescription.
If it became necessary to divide the pill into several parts (for example, the doctor prescribed a прием or ½ part tablet) for a small child - it is not possible to keep the pills for a broken skin for a long time, as they gradually lose their healing properties over the course of a day.
