Description of the drug approved by the manufacturer for the printed edition of 2011.


Inosine belongs to the group of drugs that regulate metabolic processes.
The drug is a precursor of the synthesis of purine nucleotides: adenosine triphosphate and guanosine triphosphate.
Has antihypoxic, metabolic and antiarrhythmic effect.
Increases the energy balance of the myocardium, improves coronary circulation, prevents the consequences of intraoperative kidney ischemia. It takes a direct part in the exchange of glucose and promotes the activation of metabolism in conditions of hypoxia and in the absence of adenosine triphosphate.
Activates the metabolism of pyruvic acid to ensure a normal process of tissue respiration, and also promotes the activation of xanthine dehydrogenase.
Stimulates the synthesis of nucleotides, enhances the activity of certain enzymes of the Krebs cycle. Penetrating into cells, increases the energy level, has a positive effect on the metabolic processes in the myocardium, increases the strength of the heart contractions and promotes more complete relaxation of the myocardium in diastole, resulting in an increase in the shock volume of blood.
Reduces platelet aggregation, activates the regeneration of tissues (especially the myocardium and mucous membrane of the gastrointestinal tract.


It is well absorbed in the gastrointestinal tract.
Metabolised in the liver with the formation of glucuronic acid and its subsequent oxidation. In a small amount is excreted by the kidneys.

Assign adults in the complex therapy of coronary heart disease, after a heart attack, myocardial infarction, heart rhythm disorders due to the use of cardiac glycosides.

Assign with hepatitis, cirrhosis, fatty liver, caused by alcohol or drugs and urocoppororphy.


Assign adults inside, before eating.

The daily intake for oral administration is 0.6-2.4 g. In the first days of treatment the daily dose is 0.6-0.8 g (200 mg 3-4 times a day).

The duration of the course is from 4 weeks to 1.5-3 months.

With urocoppororphy, the daily dose is 0.8 g (200 mg 4 times a day).
The drug is taken daily for 1-3 months.

Allergic reactions are possible in the form of hives, itchy skin, skin hyperemia (drug withdrawal is required).
Rarely with the treatment of the drug raises the concentration of uric acid in the blood and exacerbation of gout (with prolonged use).

Hypersensitivity to the drug, gout, hyperuricemia.
Fructose intolerance and glucose / galactose absorption disorder or sugar / isomaltase deficiency.
Renal insufficiency, diabetes mellitus.

Riboxin is contraindicated during pregnancy. For the duration of treatment with Riboxin, breastfeeding should be discontinued.

With caution: kidney failure.


During the treatment with Riboxin, the concentration of uric acid in the blood and urine should be monitored.

Information for patients with diabetes: 1 tablet of the drug corresponds to 0.00641 units of bread.

Does not affect the ability to drive vehicles and manage mechanisms that require increased concentration.


Immunosuppressants (azathioprine, antilympholine, cyclosporine, thymodepressin, etc.) with simultaneous use reduce the effectiveness of Riboxin.
