Mode of action Paraesthesia in diabetic neuropathy, ALPHA LIPON Aristo 600 mg:


How does the ingredient in the drug work?

The active ingredient protects the nerves of the arms and especially the legs from the damaging effects of diabetes. Two mechanisms come into play for this: On the one hand, the substance ensures that the blood supply to the nerves is not impeded by breakdown products that are produced when the sugar content in the blood is too high. In order to achieve this, the active ingredient reduces the formation of these products. On the other hand, it intercepts nerve-damaging substances that arise due to an insufficient blood supply and the associated oxygen supply.

Contraindications:
What speaks against an application?

- Hypersensitivity to the ingredients

Which age group should be considered?
- Children and adolescents under 18 years of age: The medicine must not be used.

What about pregnancy and lactation?

- Breast-feeding: consult your doctor or pharmacist. He will examine your particular starting position and advise you accordingly as to whether and how you can continue breastfeeding.

If you have been prescribed the drug despite a contraindication, talk to your doctor or pharmacist. The therapeutic benefit can be higher than the risk that the use entails in the event of a contraindication.

way Paraesthesia in diabetic neuropathy, ALPHA LIPON Aristo 600 mg

  • The film-coated tablets should be swallowed whole and with sufficient liquid on an empty stomach. Simultaneously ingesting food can impede the passage of thioctic acid into the bloodstream. It is therefore particularly important in patients who also have a prolonged gastric emptying time that the dose is taken half an hour before a meal/breakfast.

side effects

  • Like all medicines, this medicine can cause side effects, although not everybody gets them.
  • Very rare (affects less than 1 user in 10,000):
    • Gastrointestinal symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, stomach and intestinal pain and diarrhea
    • taste disorders
    • Allergic reactions such as skin rash, hives (urticaria) and itching
    • Due to improved glucose utilization, the blood sugar level can drop. Symptoms like hypoglycaemia with dizziness, sweating, headaches and visual disturbances were described.
  • countermeasures
    • If you notice the side effects mentioned above, thioctic acid should not be taken again. Notify your doctor so he can decide on the severity and any further action that may be needed.
    • At the first sign of a hypersensitivity reaction, the drug should be discontinued and a doctor contacted immediately.
  • If you get any side effects, talk to your doctor, pharmacist or nurse. This also applies to side effects that are not specified.

Paraesthesia in diabetic neuropathy, ALPHA LIPON Aristo 600 mg interactions

  • Taking with other medicines
    • Please tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are using, have recently used or might use any other medicines. It cannot be ruled out that the simultaneous use of thioctic acid leads to a loss of effectiveness of cisplatin (a cancer drug).
    • Thioctic acid easily forms chemical compounds with metals (metal chelator) and should therefore not be given at the same time as metal compounds (e.g. iron preparations, magnesium preparations, milk products due to the calcium content) for fundamental reasons, as this can lead to a loss of effectiveness. If the entire daily dose of thioctic acid is taken 30 minutes before breakfast, iron and magnesium supplements can be taken at noon or in the evening.
    • The blood sugar-lowering effect of insulin or oral antidiabetics can be increased. Close blood sugar monitoring is therefore indicated, particularly in the initial stages of therapy with thioctic acid. In individual cases, it may be necessary to reduce the insulin dose or the dose of the oral antidiabetic in accordance with the instructions of the attending physician in order to avoid symptoms of hypoglycaemia.
  • Take with food, drink and alcohol
    • The regular consumption of alcohol represents a significant risk factor for the development and progression (progression) of neuropathic diseases and can thus also impair the success of treatment with thioctic acid. Therefore, patients with diabetic polyneuropathy are generally recommended to avoid the consumption of alcohol as far as possible. This also applies to therapy-free intervals.

Contraindications

  • The medicine should not be taken
    • if you are allergic to thioctic acid or any of the other ingredients.
