Pharmachologic effect

Mode of action - anxiolytic.


The active substance of Adaptol - tetramethyltetraazabicyclooctanedione - by chemical structure is close to the natural metabolites of the body. Its molecule consists of two methylated fragments of urea, which are part of the bicyclic structure.

Adaptol acts on the activity of the structures entering the limbic-reticular complex, in particular, on the emotionogenic zones of the hypothalamus, and also affects all the four major neurotransmitter systems - GABA-, choline-, serotonin- and adrenergic, promoting their balance and integration, but not has peripheral adrenoblocking action. Eliminates or alleviates anxiety, anxiety, fear, inner emotional tension and irritability. The soothing effect is not accompanied by muscle relaxation and impaired coordination of movements. It does not reduce mental and motor activity, therefore Adaptol can be used during a working day or school. Does not create an upbeat mood, a sense of euphoria. Sleeping effect does not have, but enhances the effect of hypnotics and normalizes sleep during its violations. Adaptol facilitates or removes nicotine abstinence.

In addition to soothing, nootropic effect. Adaptol improves cognitive functions, attention and mental performance, without stimulating the symptoms of productive psychopathological disorders - nonsense, pathological emotional activity.


The drug is well (77-80%) absorbed from the digestive tract, up to 40% of the dose is associated with erythrocytes. The remaining part does not bind to blood plasma proteins and is in the blood plasma in a free form, so the active substance is unrestrictedly distributed throughout the body and freely overcomes the cell membranes. Cmax of the active substance in the blood is reached after 0.5 h after administration of the drug and the high level persists for 3-4 hours, then gradually decreases. 55-70% of the accepted dose is excreted from the body with urine, the rest - with feces in unchanged form during the day.

Tetramethyltetraazabicyclooctanedione is not metabolized and does not accumulate in the body.
