Description of the drug approved by the manufacturer for the printed edition of 2014.


Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID).
Has analgesic, anti-inflammatory and antipyretic effect. The mechanism of action is associated with inhibition of prostaglandin synthesis at the level of COX-1 and COX-2.
The analgesic effect occurs 30 minutes after parenteral administration.
The duration of the analgesic effect after administration in a dose of 50 mg is 4-8 hours.
With combined therapy with opioid analgesics of dexketoprofen, trometamol significantly (to 30-45%) reduces the need for opioids.



After the / m administration of dexketoprofen trometamol C max in the blood serum
is achieved on average after 20 min (10-45 min). AUC after a single injection in a dose of 25-50 mg is proportional to the dose, both with / m and with iv introduction. The corresponding pharmacokinetic parameters are similar after a single and repeated IM or IV injection, which indicates the absence of cumulation of the drug.

For dexketoprofen, trometamol is characterized by a high level of binding to plasma proteins (99%).
The average value of V d is less than 0.25 l / kg, half-distribution time is about 0.35 h.

The main way of eliminating dexketoprofen is its conjugation with glucuronic acid followed by excretion by the kidneys.
T 1/2 of dexketoprofen trometamol is about 1-2.7 hours.
Pharmacokinetics in special clinical cases

In elderly people, an increase in the duration of T 1/2 (either after a single dose or after repeated IM or IV injection) is observed on an average of 48% and a decrease in the overall clearance of the drug.


- relief of pain syndrome of various genesis (including postoperative pain, pain in bone metastases, posttraumatic pain, pain in renal colic, algodismenorea, sciatica, radiculitis, neuralgia, toothache);

- symptomatic treatment of acute and chronic inflammatory, inflammatory-degenerative and metabolic diseases of the musculoskeletal system (including rheumatoid arthritis, spondyloarthritis, arthrosis, osteochondrosis).


Dexalgin В® is intended for intravenous and / or intravenous administration.

The recommended adult dose is 50 mg every 8-12 hours. If necessary, repeated administration of the drug with a 6-hour interval is possible.
The daily dose is 150 mg.
In elderly patients and patients with impaired liver and / or kidney function, therapy with Dexalgin В® should be started with lower doses;
the daily dose is 50 mg.
Dexalgin В® is intended for short-term (no more than 2 days) use during acute pain syndrome.
In the future, the patient can be transferred to analgesics for oral administration.

In patients with disorders of the digestive system or gastrointestinal diseases in a history, continuous monitoring is necessary.
In the event of gastrointestinal bleeding or ulcerative lesions, DexalginВ® treatment should be discontinued.
all NSAIDs can inhibit platelet aggregation and increase bleeding time due to a slowdown in the synthesis of prostaglandins. In controlled clinical trials, the simultaneous administration of dexketoprofen trometamol and low-molecular-weight heparin preparations in prophylactic doses in the postoperative period was studied. No effect on coagulation parameters was observed. However, with the simultaneous administration of the drug Dexalgin В® with other drugs that affect blood clotting, careful medical control is necessary.
Like other NSAIDs, DexalginВ® can lead to increased levels of creatinine and nitrogen in the blood plasma.
Like other inhibitors of prostaglandin synthesis, DexalginВ® may have a side effect on the urinary system, which can lead to the development of glomerulonephritis, interstitial nephritis, papillary necrosis, nephrotic syndrome and acute renal failure.
Against the background of therapy with the drug Dexalgin В® , as well as other NSAIDs, there may be a slight transient increase in some hepatic parameters, as well as a significant increase in the level of AST and ALT in the blood serum.
At the same time, control of liver and kidney functions is necessary in elderly patients. In the case of a significant increase in the corresponding indicators, DexalginВ® should be canceled.
Like other NSAIDs, dexketoprofen trometamol can mask the symptoms of infectious diseases.
In case of symptoms of bacterial infection or worsening of well-being on the background of therapy with Dexalgin В® the patient should inform the doctor about it.
Each ampoule of DexalginВ® contains 200 mg of ethanol.

Impact on the ability to drive vehicles and manage mechanisms

In connection with the possible dizziness and drowsiness on the background of treatment with the drug Dexalgin В® , a decrease in the ability to concentrate and speed of psychomotor reactions is possible.


Symptoms: nausea, anorexia, abdominal pain, headache, dizziness, disorientation, insomnia.

Treatment: symptomatic therapy;
if necessary, gastric lavage, dialysis.

The following drug interaction is typical for all NSAIDs, including DexalginВ®.

Unwanted combinations

Simultaneous administration of several NSAIDs, including salicylates in high doses (more than 3 g / day) increases the risk of gastrointestinal bleeding and ulcers due to synergistic action.

With simultaneous use with oral anticoagulants, heparin at doses exceeding preventive, and ticlopidine increases the risk of bleeding due to inhibition of platelet aggregation and damage to the gastrointestinal mucosa.

NSAIDs increase the concentration of lithium in the blood plasma, down to toxic, and therefore this indicator should be monitored when appointing, changing the dose and after the abolition of NSAIDs.

When applied with methotrexate in high doses (15 mg / week or more), there is an increase in hematological toxicity of methotrexate due to a decrease in its renal clearance against the background of therapy with NSAIDs.

At simultaneous application with hydantoins and sulfanilamide preparations there is a risk of intensifying the toxic effect of these drugs.

Combinations that require caution

If simultaneous use with diuretics, ACE inhibitors is necessary, it should be taken into account that NSAID therapy is associated with the risk of acute renal failure in patients with dehydration (reduced glomerular filtration due to oppression of prostaglandin synthesis).
NSAIDs can reduce the hypotensive effect of certain drugs.With simultaneous appointment with diuretics, it is necessary to make sure that the patient's water balance is adequate, and to monitor the kidney function before prescribing NSAIDs.
When used simultaneously with methotrexate in low doses (less than 15 mg / week), it is possible to increase the hematological toxicity of methotrexate due to a decrease in its renal clearance against the background of therapy with NSAIDs.
It is necessary to monitor the number of blood cells weekly in the first weeks of simultaneous therapy. In the presence of a violation of kidney function, even in an easy degree, as well as in the elderly, careful medical supervision is necessary.
With simultaneous use with pentoksifillinom increases the risk of bleeding.
It requires intensive clinical monitoring and frequent monitoring of bleeding time (blood clotting time).
With simultaneous use with zidovudine, there is a risk of increasing the toxic effect on red blood cells caused by exposure to reticulocytes, with the development of severe anemia a week after the appointment of NSAIDs .
It is necessary to control all blood cells and reticulocytes in 1-2 weeks. after initiation of therapy with NSAIDs.
It is possible to increase the hypoglycemic effect of sulfonylurea derivatives due to its displacement from the binding sites to plasma proteins under the influence of NSAIDs.

With the simultaneous use of low-molecular weight heparin with drugs, the risk of bleeding increases.

Combinations that need to be taken into account

NSAIDs can reduce the hypotensive effect of beta-blockers, which is due to inhibition of the synthesis of prostaglandins.

When used simultaneously with cyclosporine and tacrolimus, NSAIDs can enhance nephrotoxicity, which is mediated by the action of renal prostaglandins.
During the combination therapy it is necessary to monitor the kidney function.
With concomitant administration with thrombolytics, the risk of bleeding increases.

With simultaneous application with probenecid, an increase in plasma NSAID concentrations is possible, which may be due to inhibition of renal secretion and / or conjugation with glucuronic acid.
This requires correction of the dose of NSAIDs.
NSAIDs can cause an increase in the concentration of cardiac glycosides in blood plasma.

In connection with the theoretical risk of changing the effectiveness of mifepristone under the influence of inhibitors of prostaglandin synthesis, NSAIDs should not be prescribed earlier than 8-12 days after the withdrawal of mifepristone.

The data obtained in experimental studies on animals indicate a high risk of convulsions in the appointment of NSAIDs with ciprofloxacin in high doses.
