Corvalol is a combined drug. It has sedative and antispasmodic effect, facilitates the onset of natural sleep. Corvalol is an effective remedy for functional disorders of the cardiovascular system, neurosis-like states, accompanied by increased irritability, violations of sleep, tachycardia, excitation states.
Active substance: each tablet contains:
ethyl alpha-bromo-isovaleric acid - 8.2 mg;
phenobarbital - 7.5 mg;
peppermint oil - 0,58 mg;
Pharmachologic effect: sedative
Phenobarbital has sedative and mild hypnotic effects. It helps reduce CNS excitation and facilitates offensive of natural sleep.
Ethyl alpha-bromo-isovaleric acid has sedative and antispasmodic action.
Peppermint oil has a reflex vasodilator and spasmolytic activity.
Corvalol is a combined drug. It has a sedative and antispasmodic effect, facilitates the onset of natural sleep.
Ethyl bromisovalerianate has a sedative (similar to the effect of valerian) and antispasmodic effect due to irritation, mainly of the receptors of the oral cavity and nasopharynx, a decrease in reflex excitability in the central parts of the nervous system and increased inhibition in the neurons of the cortex and subcortical structures of the brain, as well as a decrease in the activity of the central vasomotor centers and a direct local antispasmodic effect on smooth muscles.
Phenobarbital has a sedative (in small doses), hypnotic, muscle relaxant and antispasmodic effects, helps to reduce the excitation of the central nervous system (CNS) and facilitates the onset of sleep, enhances the sedative effect of other components.
Peppermint leaf oil has a reflex vasodilatory effect, antispasmodic, mild choleretic, antiseptic action. The mechanism of action is associated with the ability to irritate the "cold" receptors of the oral mucosa and reflexively expand mainly the vessels of the heart and brain. Peppermint leaf oil eliminates the phenomena of flatulence due to irritation of the receptors of the mucous membrane of the gastrointestinal tract, enhancing intestinal peristalsis.

If tachycardia - the single dose can be increased to 3 tablets.
Depression of the central nervous system, nystagmus, ataxia, lowering blood pressure, agitation, dizziness, weakness, chronic bromine intoxication (depression, apathy, rhinitis, conjunctivitis, hemorrhagic diathesis, impaired coordination of movements).
Discontinuation of the drug, gastric lavage and symptomatic therapy, with CNS depression - caffeine, nikethamide.
The drug contains phenobarbital, so patients taking Corvalol should refrain from driving and engaging in other potentially hazardous activities that require increased concentration and psychomotor speed.
