CAS code


Characteristics of the substance Levomepromazine

The phenothiazine derivative. Yellowish white, slightly hygroscopic powder. Is unstable to light and air. Very soluble in water, alcohol, chloroform; almost nerastvorim on the air.


Pharmacological action - analgesic, antipsychotic, neuroleptic, antiemetic.

It blocks dopamine receptors of various brain structures (including mesolimbic, mesocortical). Reduces the productive symptoms of psychosis - nonsense, hallucinations, psychomotor agitation. Has strong adrenoblocking, moderate anticholinergic and antihistamine properties. Has analgesic effect.

Quickly and fairly fully absorbed in any way of administration. Cmax is achieved 1-3 hours after oral administration and after 0.5-1.5 h after injection. It passes through the histohematological barriers, including the BBB, and is distributed in organs and tissues. Intensively biotransformed. The main active metabolite, N-desmethyl mono- metotrimeprazine, is further converted to monosulfoxide. T1 / 2 levomepromazina - 16-78 h. It is excreted mainly in the form of metabolites with urine and bile.

Application of Levomepromazine

Psychomotor agitation of various etiologies (for acute and chronic schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, psychoses, including senile, intoxication, oligophrenia, epilepsy), as well as other mental disorders that occur with agitation, anxiety, panic, phobias, persistent insomnia. Strengthening the action of analgesics, funds for general anesthesia, antihistamines). Pain syndrome with neuralgia of trigeminal and neuritis of the facial nerve, shingles.


Hypersensitivity, simultaneous reception of antihypertensive drugs; overdosage of drugs that cause inhibition of the central nervous system (alcohol, general anesthetics, hypnotics), closed angle glaucoma, urinary retention, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, myasthenia gravis, hemiplegia, chronic heart failure in decompensation stage, severe renal and / or hepatic insufficiency, severe arterial hypotension, oppression of bone marrow hematopoiesis, porphyria, pregnancy, breastfeeding, children under 12 years.

Restrictions on the use

Epilepsy, patients with a history of cardiovascular disease, especially in the elderly (impaired cardiac muscle conduction, arrhythmia, congenital QT interval prolongation syndrome).

Application in pregnancy and lactation

Do not use during pregnancy, except when the intended benefit to the mother exceeds the potential risk to the fetus. For the duration of treatment, breastfeeding should be stopped (levomepromazin penetrates into breast milk).

Side effects of Levomepromazine

From the side of the cardiovascular system and blood (hematopoiesis, hemostasis): decreased blood pressure, orthostatic hypotension, tachycardia, Morgagni-Adams-Stokes syndrome, prolongation of the QT interval (arrhythmogenic effect, tachycardia of the pirouette type) (see also "Restrictions on use "), Pancytopenia, agranulocytosis, leukopenia, eosinophilia, thrombocytopenia.

On the part of the nervous system and sensory organs: confusion, slurred speech, extrapyramidal symptoms with a prevalence of akinetic-hypotonic syndrome, epileptic seizures, increased intracranial pressure, neuroleptic malignant syndrome (NZS); with long-term use - deposits in the lens and cornea, pigmentary retinopathy.

On the part of the intestine: dry mouth, constipation, discomfort in the abdomen, nausea, vomiting, liver damage (jaundice, cholestasis).

Allergic reactions: laryngeal edema, peripheral edema, anaphylactoid reactions, bronchospasm, urticaria, exfoliative dermatitis.

Other: bleaching of urine, impaired urination, galactorrhea, menstrual irregularity, weight loss, increased photosensitivity, erythema, pigmentation, hyperthermia (may be the first sign of NCS), pain and swelling at the injection site. Some patients who have been receiving phenothiazines for a long time have described the development of pituitary adenoma, but further studies are needed to establish its causal relationship with these drugs.


Incompatible with MAO inhibitors (increased risk of extrapyramidal disorders due to decreased inactivation of the drug in the liver) and hypotensive drugs (risk of orthostatic hypotension). Means that depress the central nervous system (narcotic analgesics, general anesthetics, anxiolytics, sedatives and hypnotics, tricyclic antidepressants), increase the inhibitory effect of the drug on the central nervous system.

Caution should be exercised when combined with anticholinergic drugs (tricyclic antidepressants, H1-histamine receptor blockers, some anti-Parkinsonian drugs, atropine, scopolamine, succinylcholine) due to increased anticholinergic effects (paralytic ileus, urinary retention, glaucoma). QT prolonging agents (antiarrhythmics, macrolides, antifungal azoles, cisapride, antidepressants, antihistamines, and diuretics that lower potassium levels) increase the risk of prolonging the QT interval and increase the risk of arrhythmia.

Levomepromazine reduces the antiparkinsonian activity of levodopa, the effectiveness of oral antidiabetic drugs. Antacids containing calcium, magnesium or aluminum, reduce absorption in the digestive tract (levomepromazin should be taken 1 hour before or 4 hours after taking antacid drugs). When combined with alcohol, inhibition of the central nervous system increases and the likelihood of extrapyramidal side effects increases.


Symptoms: arterial hypotension, conduction abnormalities in the cardiac muscle (prolongation of the QT interval, ventricular pirouette tachycardia, atrioventricular blockade), depression of consciousness of varying severity (up to coma), extrapyramidal symptoms, sedative effect, epileptic seizures.

Treatment: resuscitation, symptomatic therapy. The specific antidote is unknown. Forced diuresis, hemodialysis and hemoperfusion are not effective.

Routes of administration

Inside, IM, IV.

Precautions for the substance Levemepromazine

It is necessary to change the injection site because of the possible local tissue reaction (IM injections are painful). It is recommended to conduct a systematic blood test and evaluate liver function, in elderly and weakened patients, blood pressure control is necessary. During the first 3-5 days of treatment after taking levomepromazine, regardless of dose and method of administration, the patient is recommended to lie 0.5-1 h in order to prevent orthostatic collapse. It should be borne in mind that with rapid increases in doses, especially in the elderly or in patients with vascular insufficiency, drug delirium may develop.

After a sudden discontinuation of the drug, used in high doses or for a long time, nausea, vomiting, headache, tremor, increased sweating, tachycardia, insomnia and anxiety, as well as the development of tolerance to the sedative effects of phenothiazines and cross tolerance to various antipsychotics. In this regard, the abolition of the drug should always be done gradually.

Many antipsychotics, incl. levomepromazine, can reduce the threshold of convulsive readiness and cause epileptiform changes in the EEG. Therefore, when selecting a dose in patients with epilepsy, clinical indicators and EEG should be constantly monitored.

The development of cholestatic jaundice depends on the individual sensitivity of the patient and completely disappears after discontinuation of the drug administration. Therefore, long-term treatment requires regular monitoring of liver function.

Do not use during work drivers of vehicles and people whose profession is associated with increased concentration of attention. In the period of treatment and within 4-5 days after stopping the intake of levomepromazine, the refusal of alcoholic beverages is mandatory.
