Nivabex is a combination of Nivalin (Galantamine) and B group vitamins. Its pharmacological action is expressed in improvements of the functional activity of the nervous system and metabolite processes in the body.
Nivalin is a strong reversible inhibitor of the cholinesterase stimulating nerve impulses in the neuromuscular synapses and the synapses of the Central and Peripheral nervous systems.
Vitamin B1 following its transformation in pyrophosphate as a coenzyme participates in the metabolism of the carbohydrates, proteins and the synthesis of nucleonic acids. It facilitates the transmission of the action potentials in the peripheral nerves and the neuromuscular transmission.
Vitamin B2 is included in the composition of many oxidative enzymes and participates in the metabolism of carbohydrates, proteins and fats. It plays important role in the normal functions of the eye, ligaments and skin.
Vitamin B6 in the body is transformed into pyridoxal phosphate and plays the role of coenzyme in multiple enzyme reactions.
Vitamin PP (Nicotinic acid and Nicotinamide) is included in the composition of codehydrogenases, participates in the enzyme reactions of dehydration. Improves the functions of the skin and mucosa, avoids the origination of pellgra and other lesions of the skin, gastrointestinal disorders and damage of the nervous system. It intensifies the detoxification function of organism and has a vasodilatory action.
Calcium pantothenate is included in the coenzyme A and participates in the metabolism of carbohydrates and lipids in the synthesis of steroidal hormones and acetylcholine, as well as in the energy facilitation of the compensating functions of the myocardium.
Nivabex possesses activity that is expressed in:
- Improvement of the condition of the nervous system
- Antagonizing action with respect to various agents with damaging effect on the nervous system
- Anti-inflammatory and analgesic action

In adequate doses, the preparation is well tolerated. Overdosage and individually increased sensitivity may cause abundant salivation, perspiration, vomiting or dizziness. If such symptoms appear, the daily dose is reduced or the treatment is discontinued for 2-3 days, to be continued later with lower doses. If necessary, atropine may be used as an antidote.
