nimesulide 100 mg

auxiliary substances: ketomacrogol 1000; sucrose; maltodextrin; citric acid is anhydrous; orange flavor

Description of dosage form

Light yellow granular powder with orange smell.

pharmachologic effect

Pharmacological action - anti-inflammatory, antipyretic, analgesic.


Nimesulide is an NSAID from the class of sulfonamides. Has anti-inflammatory, analgesic and antipyretic effect. Nimesulide acts as an inhibitor of the COX enzyme responsible for the synthesis of PG and inhibits mainly COX-2.


After ingestion, the drug is well absorbed from the digestive tract, reaching Cmax in the blood plasma after 2-3 hours; communication with plasma proteins - 97.5%; T1 / 2 is 3.2 to 6 hours. Easily penetrates through the histogematic barriers.

Metabolised in the liver with the help of cytochrome P450CYP2C9 isoenzyme. The main metabolite is the pharmacologically active parahydroxy derivative of nimesulide - hydroxynimidesulide. Hydroxynimesulide is excreted in the metabolized form with bile (found only in the form of glucuronate - about 29%).

Nimesulide is excreted from the body, mostly by the kidneys (about 50% of the dose taken).

The pharmacokinetic profile of nimesulide in elderly patients does not change with the administration of single and multiple / repeated doses.

According to an experimental study conducted with patients with mild to moderate renal failure (Cl creatinine 30-80 ml / min) and healthy volunteers, Cmax nimesulide and its metabolite in patients with plasma did not exceed the concentration of nimesulide in healthy volunteers. AUC and T1 / 2 in patients with renal insufficiency were 50% higher, but within the pharmacokinetic parameters. When you re-take the drug cumulation is not observed.

The decision to prescribe Nimesil® should be based on an individual assessment of the risk and benefit of taking the drug.

pregnancy and lactation

Like other NSAID drugs that inhibit the synthesis of PG, nimesulide may adversely affect pregnancy and / or embryo development and lead to premature closure of the arterial duct, hypertension in the pulmonary artery system, impaired renal function that can translate into renal insufficiency with oligohydramnion, an increased risk of bleeding, a decrease in contractility of the uterus, the emergence of peripheral edema.

In this regard, nimesulide is contraindicated during pregnancy and lactation.

The use of Nimesil® can negatively affect female fertility and is not recommended for women planning a pregnancy. When planning pregnancy, consultation with the doctor is necessary.

Pharmacodynamic interactions

GCS. Increase the risk of gastrointestinal ulcers or bleeding.

Antiplatelet agents and SSRIs, for example fluoxetine. Increase the risk of gastrointestinal bleeding.

Anticoagulants. NSAIDs can enhance the action of anticoagulants, such as warfarin. Because of the increased risk of bleeding, this combination is not recommended and is contraindicated in patients with severe coagulation disorders. If combined therapy can still be avoided, careful monitoring of blood coagulation should be carried out.

Diuretics. NSAIDs may reduce the effect of diuretics.

In healthy volunteers, nimesulide temporarily reduces the excretion of sodium by furosemide, to a lesser extent - the excretion of potassium and reduces the actual diuretic effect.

The simultaneous administration of nimesulide and furosemide results in a decrease (approximately 20%) in AUC and a decrease in cumulative furosemide excretion without altering the renal clearance of furosemide.

Co-administration of furosemide and nimesulide requires caution in patients with impaired renal or cardiac function.

ACE inhibitors and angiotensin II receptor antagonists. NSAIDs may reduce the effect of antihypertensive drugs. In patients with mild and moderate renal failure (Cl creatinine 30-80 ml / min), concomitant administration of ACE inhibitors, angiotensin II receptor antagonists, or substances suppressing the COX system (NSAIDs, antiaggregants) may further impair kidney function and the occurrence of acute renal disease insufficiency, which, as a rule, happens to be reversible. These interactions should be considered in patients taking Nimesil® in combination with ACE inhibitors or angiotensin II receptor antagonists. Therefore, joint intake of these drugs should be administered with caution, especially for elderly patients. Patients should receive a sufficient amount of fluid, and renal function should be carefully monitored after the initiation of co-therapy.

Pharmacokinetic interactions with other drugs

Lithium preparations. There is evidence that NSAIDs decrease lithium clearance, which leads to an increase in the concentration of lithium in the blood plasma and its toxicity. When nimesulide is prescribed, patients receiving lithium therapy should be monitored regularly for plasma lithium concentrations.

Clinically significant interactions with glibenclamide, theophylline, digoxin, cimetidine and antacid preparations (for example, a combination of aluminum and magnesium hydroxides) were not observed.

Nimesulide inhibits the activity of the isoenzyme CYP2C9. With the simultaneous administration of nimesulide drugs, which are substrates of this enzyme, the concentration of these drugs in the plasma may increase.

Caution is required when administering nimesulide less than 24 hours before or after taking methotrexate. in such cases, the level of methotrexate in the plasma and, accordingly, the toxic effects of this drug may increase.

In connection with the effect on renal PG, COX inhibitors, such as nimesulide, may increase the nephrotoxicity of cyclosporins.

Interaction of other drugs with nimesulide

In vitro studies have shown that nimesulide is displaced from the binding sites by tolbutamide, salicylic acid and valproic acid, but these effects have not been observed during clinical use of the drug.

Dosing and Administration

Inside, after eating. 1 pack. (100 mg of nimesulide) 2 times a day. The contents of the sachet are poured into a beaker and dissolved in about 100 ml of water. The prepared solution is not subject to storage.

Nimesil® is only used to treat patients older than 12 years.

Teenagers (from 12 to 18 years). Based on the pharmacokinetic profile and pharmacodynamic characteristics of nimesulide, adolescents do not need to adjust the dose.

Patients with impaired renal function. Based on pharmacokinetic data, the need for dose adjustment in patients with mild and moderate forms of renal failure (Cl creatinine 30-80 ml / min) is not present.

Patients of advanced age. In the treatment of elderly patients, the need to adjust the daily dose is determined by the doctor based on the possibility of interaction with other drugs.

The maximum duration of treatment with nimesulide is 15 days.

To reduce the risk of undesirable side effects, use the lowest effective dose with a minimally short course.


Symptoms: apathy, drowsiness, nausea, vomiting, pain in the epigastric region. With maintenance therapy of gastropathy, these symptoms are usually reversible. There may be a gastrointestinal bleeding. In rare cases, it is possible to raise blood pressure, acute renal failure, respiratory depression and coma, anaphylactoid reactions.

Treatment: symptomatic. There is no specific antidote. In case an overdose has occurred within the last 4 hours, induction of vomiting and / or the administration of activated charcoal (from 60 to 100 g per adult) and / or osmotic laxative. Forced diuresis, hemodialysis - ineffective because of the high connection of the drug with proteins (up to 97.5%). The control of kidney and liver function is shown.

special instructions

Unwanted side effects can be minimized by using the lowest effective dose of the drug as little as possible a short course.

Nimesil® should be used with caution in patients with gastrointestinal ailments in history (ulcerative colitis, Crohn's disease), as possible exacerbation of these diseases.

The risk of gastrointestinal bleeding, ulcers or perforation of the ulcer increases with an increase in the dose of NSAIDs in patients with a history of an ulcer, especially complicated by bleeding or perforation, and in elderly patients, so treatment should be started with the lowest possible dose. In patients receiving drugs, reducing blood clotting or suppressing platelet aggregation also increases the risk of gastrointestinal bleeding. In case of gastrointestinal bleeding or ulcers in patients taking Nimesil®, treatment with the drug should be discontinued.

Since Nimesil® is partially excreted by the kidneys, its dosage should be reduced for patients with impaired renal function, depending on the level of urination.

There are data on the occurrence of rare cases of reactions from the liver. If signs of liver damage (itchy skin, yellowing of the skin, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, darkening of the urine, increased activity of liver transaminases), stop taking the drug and consult a doctor.

Despite the rarity of visual impairment in patients taking nimesulide concomitantly with other NSAIDs, treatment should be stopped immediately. If any visual impairment occurs, the patient should be examined by an oculist.

The drug can cause fluid retention in the tissues, so patients with high blood pressure and cardiac abnormalities Nimesil® should be used with extreme caution.

In patients with renal or heart failure, Nimesil® should be used with caution, since renal impairment may be impaired. In case of worsening, treatment with Nimesil® should be stopped.

Clinical studies and epidemiological data suggest that NSAIDs, especially in high doses and with prolonged use, can lead to an insignificant risk of myocardial infarction or stroke. To exclude the risk of such events occurring when nimesulide is used, data is insufficient.

The composition of the drug includes sucrose, this should be taken into account for patients suffering from diabetes (0.15-0.18 XE per 100 mg of the drug) and those who observe a low-calorie diet. Nimesil® is not recommended for patients with intolerance to fructose, malabsorption of glucose-galactose, or insufficiency of sucrose-isomaltose.

If there are signs of a cold or an acute respiratory viral infection during treatment with Nimesil®, the drug should be discontinued.

Do not use Nimesil® concomitantly with other NSAIDs.

Nimesulide can change the properties of platelets, so care must be taken when using the drug in people with hemorrhagic diathesis, but the drug does not replace the preventive effect of acetylsalicylic acid in cardiovascular diseases.

Elderly patients are particularly susceptible to adverse reactions to NSAIDs, incl. risk of gastrointestinal bleeding and perforations, threatening the life of the patient, worsening kidney, liver and heart function. When taking Nimesil® for this category of patients, proper clinical control is necessary.

There are reports of the occurrence in rare cases of skin reactions (such as exfoliative dermatitis, Stevens-Johnson syndrome, toxic epidermal necrolysis) on nimesulide as well as other NSAIDs. At the first signs of skin rashes, lesions of mucous membranes or other signs of an allergic reaction, the drug Nimesil® should be stopped.

Effect of the drug on the ability to drive vehicles and manage mechanisms. The influence of Nimesil® on the ability to drive vehicles and control mechanisms has not been studied, therefore, during the period of treatment with Nimesil®, caution should be exercised when driving vehicles and engaging in potentially hazardous activities requiring increased attention and speed of psychomotor reactions.
