Pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics
The drug Chophytol - its action?
Pharmacological properties of the drug are due to the action of a complex of biologically active substances contained in the leaves of Cynara Scolymus. Tsinarin in combination with phenolic acids has a hepatoprotective and choleretic effect. Carotene, inulin, ascorbic acid and vitamins B1 and B2 contribute to the normalization of metabolic processes.
Chophytol promotes the activation of bile formation and bile secretion, a decrease in the level of urea and cholesterol in the blood.
Carrying out kinetic observations and identifying metabolites of the drug is not possible, since the effect of Chophytol is the cumulative effect of its active substances.

Which is better: Allochol or Chophytol?
Allochol, like Chophytol, is designed to treat liver and bile duct pathologies. Its basis are Activated Carbon (enterosorbent), bile, garlic bulbs of inoculum and leaves of nettle dioecious.
The drug has choleretic properties (it has a cholekinetic effect and causes a moderate choleretic effect), enhances the secretory function of the liver, reflexively increases the motor and secretory organs of the digestive system, improves the digestive process in general and, in particular, emulsifies edible fats, reduces the cholesterol precipitation probability from the subsequent formation of stones.
Active components of Allochol also contribute to suppressing the processes of fermentation in the intestinal tract and thereby reduce flatulence.
Allochol is prescribed for the treatment of cholangitis, chronic reactive hepatitis, DZHVP, postcholecystectomy syndrome, atonic constipation.
Cholagogue agents are prescribed only in the absence of signs of inflammation. The choice in favor of a given drug is made taking into account the type of dysfunction, and also depending on how quickly you need to get a positive result from therapy.
Both Allochol and Chophytol are true choleretics, since both increase the secretion of bile and stimulate the formation of bile acids, but Chophytol besides choleretic has also a protective effect.
Proceeding from this, it can be concluded that the use of bile-containing drugs is expedient if it is necessary to conduct long-term course treatment with biliary dysfunction, the choice is in favor of Chophytol in situations when the patient simultaneously diagnoses liver pathology.

Reviews of Chophytol for children indicate that the drug not only copes very well with the task, but is also very well tolerated by small patients. In addition, the drug is very convenient to use and easy to dose, which is very important when it comes to treating infants.

Excessive increase in the concentration of bilirubin in the blood with pathological jaundice is dangerous because it can lead to the development of noninfectious damage to the structures of the brain.
The timely use of Chophytol for newborns helps normalize liver function and biotransformation of insoluble toxic indirect bilirubin in a non-toxic direct. The mothers of small children note that the child's bilirubin decreased on average by the ninth day of life, and by the end of the second or third week the symptoms of jaundice completely disappeared.
Chophytol in pregnancy
What is the prescription for the drug?
What is Chophytol for pregnancy? The instructions state that the use of Chophytol in pregnant women is allowed according to the doctor's prescription and provided that the expected result of treatment exceeds the probable risks to the fetus or the child.
In the first months of pregnancy, the drug, with the available risk factors prescribed for the prevention of late gestosis, as well as to ease the condition of women with early toxicosis. There is evidence that the inclusion of Chophytol in the treatment of pre-eclampsia contributes to improving the clinical course of the disease.
In pregnancy, the drug acts as an antioxidant and hepatoprotector. It reduces oxidative degradation of lipids under the influence of free radicals, improves the metabolism of fats, protects the liver and facilitates its work, stimulates the formation and excretion of bile, has a mild diuretic effect, lowers cholesterol in the blood, improves blood and microcirculation (including the placenta) .
Despite the fact that the drug is not a special gynecological or obstetric agent, it is used to improve the condition in liver pathologies, atherosclerosis, inflammatory diseases of the urinary tract.
Against the background of the application of Chophytol, the overall well-being of pregnant asthenic type also improves. Women are much less likely to be disturbed by weakness, dizziness, mood swings, drowsiness, and CNS excitability decreases.
One of the problems of pregnant women is fluid retention in the tissues. Because of this, pregnancy is often complicated by quite serious pathologies. Chophytol also improves the functioning of small vessels and kidney function, thus preventing the development of edema and dropsy.
Nevertheless, it must be taken into account that the preparation does not possess antiseptic and antibacterial properties. Therefore, if there are signs of inflammation during a blood test, Chophytol alone is not enough. Along with it it is necessary to take uroseptic medications permitted for pregnant women.
Reviews of Chophytol during pregnancy are more often good. Most women claim that the drug helped them well in case of toxicosis, heartburn and edema. However, there are also such reviews, which note that the result was not noticeable even after the completion of the full course.
