Pharmacological group



It has enterosorbent, detoxifying and anti-diarrhea action. Refers to a group of polyvalent physicochemical antidotes, has a large surface activity. Adsorbs poisons and toxins from the gastrointestinal tract to their absorption, including alkaloids, glycosides, barbiturates and other sleeping pills and narcotics, heavy metal salts, toxins of bacterial, plant, animal origin, phenol derivatives, hydrocyanic acid, sulfonamides, gases. The drug adsorbs also the excess of some metabolic products - bilirubin, urea, cholesterol, as well as endogenous metabolites, responsible for the development of endogenous toxicosis. It weakly adsorbs acids and alkalis (including iron salts, cyanides, malathion, methanol, ethylene glycol). It is active, as a sorbent, with hemoperfusion. Does not irritate the mucous membrane of the gastrointestinal tract.


It is not absorbed, does not split, is released completely through the gastrointestinal tract within 24 hours.


It is used as a detoxifying agent for exogenous and endogenous toxicoses of various nature. In the complex treatment of food poisoning, salmonellosis, dysentery. When poisoning with medicines (including psychotropic, hypnotics, narcotic drugs), alkaloids, heavy metal salts and other poisons. In diseases of the gastrointestinal tract, accompanied by dyspepsia, flatulence. With food and drug allergies. With hyperbilirubinemia (viral hepatitis and other jaundice). With hyperazotemia (renal failure). To reduce gassing in the intestine before ultrasound and X-ray examination.


Exacerbation of gastric ulcer and duodenal ulcer, ulcerative colitis, bleeding from the gastrointestinal tract, intestinal atony, individual drug intolerance, simultaneous administration of antitoxic drugs, the effect of which develops after absorption (methionine, etc.).

For children, the drug is prescribed on average at a rate of 0.05 g / kg 3 times a day, depending on the body weight. The maximum single dose is up to 0.2 g / kg of body weight.

Side effects

Dyspepsia, constipation or diarrhea, staining the stools in a dark color. With prolonged use (more than 14 days), it is possible to reduce the absorption of vitamins, calcium and other nutrients from the gastrointestinal tract.


To date, cases of overdose have not been documented.


Activated charcoal reduces the effectiveness of concomitant medications, reduces the effectiveness of drugs acting on the mucous membrane of the gastrointestinal tract (including ipecacuanas and thermopsis).

special instructions

When treating intoxication, it is necessary to create an excess of activated charcoal in the stomach (before it is washed) and in the intestine (after washing the stomach). Reducing the concentration of activated carbon in the medium contributes to the desorption of the bound substance and its absorption (to prevent the resorption of the released substance, it is recommended to rinse the stomach and prescribe activated charcoal). The presence of dietary masses in the gastrointestinal tract requires administration in high doses, since the contents of the gastrointestinal tract are sorbed by activated carbon and its activity decreases. If the poisoning is caused by substances participating in enterohepatic circulation (cardiac glycosides, indomethacin, morphine and other opiates), it is necessary to use activated charcoal for several days. When using the drug for more than 10-14 days, preventive administration of vitamins and calcium preparations is necessary. It is recommended to store in a dry place separately from substances emitting gases or vapors into the atmosphere. Storage in air (especially wet) reduces sorption capacity.
