- 23 Sep 16:45
Validol is a fairly common drug that has a vasodilator effect. It is available as usual in all tablets and ampoules and drops. One Validol tablet contains 60 mg of a 25% solution of menthol in methyl ester of isovalerylate. This drugis released in the pharmacy without a prescription, while its price is rather low, so any person can buy it. Some time ago, he got under the ban, due to the fact that he was outdated, but his effectiveness was not proved, but in the end he appeared again in pharmacies.
Its application, which action it gives to the body
Validol has a sedative effect, as well as a small vasodilator. Validol's action consists of reflex reactions that occur due to irritation of the nerve endings. Irritation of the receptors located on the mucous membranes occurs simultaneously with the stimulation of the production and release of hormones, designed to regulate pain and some other processes.
To remove attacks, the tablet is placed under the tongue and spased. The action of Validol, a person feels quite quickly, in about a few minutes. As a rule, it is used by many in stress, neurotic manifestations, angina pectoris, pumping and so on.
The maximum daily dose of Validol is two to four tablets( one or two tablets are dissolving at a time).If necessary, dosage can be increased.
Sometimes, very rarely, after taking it, some side effects such as headache, nausea, dizziness appear, and eye can tear. Patients with diabetes this drug is not advised by doctors.
Validol and arterial pressure
Blood pressure and its parameters can affect the well-being and mood of a person, therefore, if a person suffers from atherosclerosis, then due to narrowed vessels it affects them negatively. In this case, Validol will provide a vasodilator effect, which will reduce the blood pressure.
It should be borne in mind that Validol will not remove the true cause of elevated indicators triggered by blood pressure from the heart, but the consequences of narrowing the blood vessels will be eliminated and reduce the likelihood of their damage. In addition, due to its sedative effect, a person calms down, no longer be nervous, which also has a positive effect on the pressure. This way, a person will feel much better. It is allowed to take validol under high pressure, but remember that it is best to ask a doctor who will appoint the necessary examinations, determine the causes of the disease and prescribe proper treatment. A large number of cardiologists believe that when taking Validol, patients often risk health because they have properties that are distracting, and its effect is not scientifically proven and in some ways similar to the placebo effect( when doctors give patients no medication, butonly his imitation, "pustuck", and they are healed due to self-instruction).
Validol and Hypotonia
First of all, Validol is well tolerated and has almost no contraindications. It does not cause allergic reactions, non-toxic and does not accumulate in the human body. Validol reduces the pressure, and is not less effective than similar drugs, so it is useful to keep it at hand. This property and explains its popularity.
However, validol is contraindicated in people with low pressure, and even more so with hypotension. Hypotonia is a long-standing condition of the body characterized by low blood pressure and some disorders of the autonomic system: lowering body temperature, sweating of the feet and hands, paleness of the skin, etc. Therefore, if you have a constant low pressure, then even the child understands that after takingValidol, its indicators are reduced, which can lead to negative consequences, one of which - a violation of blood supply and functioning of the circulatory system.
Note! Validol good masks symptoms in some heart conditions and improves well-being. He does not have serious contraindications, so if he is worried about high pressure, he is allowed to take a long time. However, the main mistake of many in the fact that it is often used to remove painful sensations that bother with angina. The fact is that with spasms in the heart Validol does not remove it, but only removes the pain and some discomfort, that is, the symptoms of spasm. In this case, an attack on the angina can turn into a myocardial infarction, in which a partial necrosis of the cells of the heart occurs. For this reason, people suffering from angina should be given Nitroglycerin or prescribed medication by a doctor. In some cases, an effective combination for which Nitroglycerin and Validol are prescribed. Keep in mind that Validol's tablet contains sugar, so it's not possible to take this medicine for people with diabetes.
Do not hurt, and we wish you did not need a Validola tablet!
