Code CAS 36322-90-4

Characteristics Piroxicam

White or white with a slightly yellowish tinge crystalline powder. Soluble in chloroform (1: 100), in warmed ethanol and methanol (1: 1000), it is difficult to dissolve in water.


Pharmacological action - anti-inflammatory, antipyretic, antiaggregational, analgesic.

Inhibits the activity of cyclooxygenase (COX (cyclooxygenase) -1 and COX-2), reduces the synthesis of PG (prostaglandins), incl. PGE1, PGE2, PGE2alpha and thromboxanes. Suppresses phagocytosis, platelet aggregation.

After intake is well absorbed from the digestive tract (gastrointestinal tract), Cmax is achieved after 3-5 hours. Equilibrium concentration in the blood is established within 7-12 days. Binding to plasma proteins is 97-99%. Metabolized in the liver (oxidized and conjugated), the main metabolites - 5-hydroxypyroxicam, N-methyl-benzenesulfonamide, etc. - are pharmacologically inactive. T1 / 2 for about 50 hours, may increase with liver disease. It is excreted by the kidneys and the digestive tract (in the urine it is determined in 2 times more amount than in the feces), mainly in the form of glucuronides (5% excreted unchanged). Passes through the placenta and penetrates into breast milk. Do not cumulate.

Promotes the alleviation of pain syndrome, symptoms of inflammation in any way of use. With articular syndrome weakens or stops inflammation and pain in the joints at rest and during movement, reduces morning stiffness and swelling of the joints.

Studies of subacute and chronic toxicity performed on rats, mice, dogs and monkeys have shown that the most frequent manifestation of toxicity in animals with prolonged administration of piroxicam, as well as other NSAIDs, is renal papillary necrosis and gastrointestinal lesion. There was no effect on fertility and teratogenic effects in animals.

Increases the probability of pathological births and the delay of the generic act in animals, like other drugs that inhibit the synthesis and release of PG. The toxic effect on the digestive tract is especially pronounced in women in the third trimester of pregnancy, compared with the action in I and II trimesters and in non-pregnant women.

Application of Piroxicam

Inflammatory and degenerative diseases of the joints and spine, accompanied by pain syndrome, incl. rheumatoid arthritis, rheumatism, ankylosing spondylitis (Bechterew's disease), osteoarthritis, juvenile chronic arthritis, tendonitis, tendovaginitis, plechequist syndrome, humeroscapular periarthritis, acute gout attack; pain syndrome of different genesis: neuralgia, myalgia, primary dysmenorrhea, postoperative and post-traumatic pain, incl. with sports injuries (bruise, dislocation, sprain), pain and swelling in the joints, tendons and muscles, caused by overexertion, etc .; acute infectious-inflammatory diseases of the upper respiratory tract.


Hypersensitivity, incl. to other NSAIDs, erosive and ulcerative lesions of the gastrointestinal tract (in the stage of exacerbation), aspirin asthma, expressed violations of the liver and / or kidney function, hemorrhagic diathesis, changes in the blood picture of an unknown genesis (including history), inflammatory changes or bleeding in the rectum and anus, incl. proctitis (with the use of suppositories); pregnancy, lactation, children and adolescents (injection for up to 18 years, gel, ointment, suppositories - up to 14 years).

Restrictions for use

Erosion-ulcerative gastrointestinal lesions in the anamnesis, bronchial asthma, allergic diseases, heart failure and other diseases accompanied by edema, arterial hypertension.

pregnancy and lactation

Contraindicated in pregnancy.

The action category for fetus by FDA is C.

For the duration of treatment, breastfeeding should be discontinued.

Side effects

From the nervous system and sensory organs: dizziness, headache, irritability, drowsiness or insomnia, weakness, depression, hallucinations, tinnitus, vision impairment, eye irritation.

From the cardiovascular system and blood (hematopoiesis, hemostasis): increase or decrease in blood pressure, palpitation, anemia, thrombopenia, leukopenia, eosinophilia, lowering of hemoglobin and hematocrit, hemorrhage.

On the part of the digestive tract: dry mouth, stomatitis, irritation of the gastrointestinal tract, nausea, eructation, anorexia, diarrhea or constipation, flatulence, bleeding gums, pain in the epigastric region, erosive and ulcerative gastrointestinal lesions and bleeding, impaired liver function (increased hepatic activity transaminases).

From the genitourinary system: renal failure, acute interstitial nephritis.

Other: allergic reactions (itching, redness of the skin, swelling, including face, hands, Stevens-Johnson syndrome, Lyell's syndrome, very rarely anaphylactic reactions, bronchospasm, photosensitization, rash), edema (predominantly of the lower extremities in patients with impaired cardiac function), sweating, increased urea levels, hyperkalemia, hypo- or hyperglycemia, weight gain or loss.

Local reactions: irritation of the rectal mucosa, tenesmus, pain and unpleasant sensation of heaviness in the anal region (suppositories); when applied to the skin - irritation, incl. itching, redness, rash, burning (with prolonged use).


It displaces other drugs from the connection with blood proteins. Lowers the effectiveness of antihypertensive drugs. Against the background of other NSAIDs and corticosteroids, the risk of ulcerogenic action increases. Increases the risk of hyperkalemia when combined with potassium-sparing diuretics and other potassium-containing drugs. Increases the concentration of phenytoin and lithium in the blood. Anticoagulants increase the risk of bleeding. Acetylsalicylic acid reduces the concentration of piroxicam in the blood to 80% of the original.


Symptoms: drowsiness, impaired vision, at very high doses - loss of consciousness, coma.

Treatment: gastric lavage, reception of activated charcoal, antacids (to reduce absorption), symptomatic therapy.

Routes of administration

Inside, in / m (intramuscularly), rectally, externally.

Precautions for Piroxicam

Before use, incl. local, patients with bronchial asthma, allergic rhinitis, with polyps of the nasal mucosa, chronic obstructive airways diseases should consult a doctor. During the treatment it is necessary to control the cellular composition of the blood, the function of the kidneys and liver.

During the treatment, you can not drink alcoholic beverages.

Avoid getting a gel or ointment on mucous membranes, eyes, open wounds, etc.
