Validol 60mg, 10 tab
Validol has a sedative, moderate reflex vasodilating and a calming effect on the nervous system. Resorptive effect of the drug is close to the action of menthol. When used in accordance with the instructions Validol takes effect within five minutes. The mechanism of action of the drug is based on reflex reactions associated with irritation of sensory nerve endings. Remedy has an irritant effect on the receptors of the mucous membranes, resulting in the stimulated formation and release of physiologically active substances (endorphins, peptides, dynorphins, enkephalins) that significantly affect the regulation of pain, vascular permeability and other important processes.
