Ascorutin is a combined preparation consisting of rutoside and vitamin C. It can be used both for prophylactic and therapeutic purposes for diseases accompanied by capillary fragility.
Ascorutin strengthens the walls of blood vessels, regulates metabolic processes, replenishes the deficiency of vitamins C and P in the body, thereby helping to strengthen the immune system. The drug is most often prescribed by doctors for thrombocytopenic purpura, hemorrhagic diathesis, rheumatism, radiation sickness, hypertension, glomerulonephritis and infectious diseases such as influenza, measles, scarlet fever and typhus. When taking anticoagulants and acetylsalicylic acid, prophylactic administration of Ascorutin is indicated.
Drink Ascorutin after meals with a sufficient amount of liquid. However, it should be remembered that alkaline drinking, in particular mineral water, interferes with the absorption of vitamin C (ascorbic acid).
Take Ascorutin in a daily dose of 1-2 tablets, if it is prescribed for prophylactic purposes. In this case, children can take no more than one tablet per day. The duration of treatment is determined individually, so consult your doctor before using the drug.
Increase the daily dose to 3-6 tablets, divided into three doses, if the drug is prescribed for medicinal purposes. Children's therapeutic dose is 1, 5-3 tablets per day, also taken 2-3 times. According to the indications, the dosage can be increased, but the decision on this must be made by a qualified specialist. The average duration of treatment is three weeks to a month.
Stop taking Ascorutin if there are side effects from the treatment. The most common manifestations of drug intolerance are headache, increased blood pressure, nausea with vomiting, and sleep disturbances. With prolonged use, the development of urolithiasis is also possible.
