Pharmacological Properties of Sermion

Pharmachologic effect - Mode of action - alpha adrenolytic.


Nicergoline - ergoline derivative improves hemodynamic and metabolic processes in the brain, decreases platelet aggregation and improve hemorheological parameters of blood, increases blood flow in the upper and lower extremities. Nicergoline exhibits α1-adrenoceptor blocking action, leading to an improvement in blood flow, and has a direct effect on cerebral neurotransmitter systems - adrenergic, dopaminergic and cholinergic. Against the background of the drug increased the activity of adrenergic, dopaminergic and cholinergic cerebral systems that helps to optimize cognitive processes. As a result, long-term therapy nicergoline seen sustained improvements in cognitive function and decrease the severity of behavioral disturbances associated with dementia.


After oral administration, nicergoline is rapidly and almost completely absorbed. Major metabolites nicergoline: 1,6-dimethyl-8β-hydroxymethyl-10α-metoksiergolin (MMDL, hydrolysis product) and 6-methyl-8β-hydroxymethyl-10α-metoksiergolin (MDL, demethylation product under the action of the isoenzyme CYP2D6). The ratio of AUC values for MMDL MDL and by ingestion and / in the introduction of nicergoline indicates a pronounced first-pass metabolism in. After receiving 30 mg of nicergoline inside Cmax MMDL - (21 ± 14) ng / ml MDL - (41 ± 14) ng / mL, Tmax - 1 and 4 hours, respectively, and then decreased with the concentration of MDL T1 / 2 of 13-20 hours. Studies confirm the absence of accumulation of other metabolites (including MMDL) in the blood. Eating or dosage form does not significantly affect the extent and rate of absorption of nicergoline. Nicergoline active (> 90%) binds to plasma proteins, and its degree of affinity for the α-acid glycoprotein more than serum albumin. It is shown that nicergoline and its metabolites are distributed in blood cells. Pharmacokinetics nicergoline at doses up to 60 mg is linear and does not vary depending on the patients age.

Nicergoline is displayed in the form of metabolites, mostly urine (about 80% of the total dose) in a small amount (10-20%) - with the feces. In patients with severe renal failure showed a significant reduction in the degree of removal of metabolic products in the urine as compared to patients with normal renal function.

Indications for Sermion

acute and chronic cerebral metabolic and vascular disorders (due to atherosclerosis, hypertension, thrombosis or cerebral embolism, including transient cerebral attack, vascular dementia, and headache caused by vasospasm);

acute and chronic peripheral metabolic and vascular disorders (organic and functional arteriopathy extremities, Raynaud's disease, syndromes, peripheral blood flow caused by violation);

as an adjunct in the treatment of hypertensive crises (parenteral).

Contraindications for Sermion

Common for all dosage forms

hypersensitivity to nicergoline and / or other components of the drug;

acute bleeding;

acute myocardial infarction;

orthostatic hypotension;


Additionally for coated tablets

deficit sucrase / isomaltase, fructose intolerance, glucose-galactose malabsorption;



age 18 years.

Precautions: hyperuricemia and gout in the history and / or in combination with drugs that disrupt metabolism or excretion of uric acid.

Pregnancy and breast-feeding

In the absence of specific studies during pregnancy Sermion® contraindicated.

At the time of the drug necessary to abandon breastfeeding because nicergoline and its metabolic products penetrate into the mother's milk.

Sermion Dosage and Administration

Film-coated tablets


Chronic disorders of cerebral circulation, vascular cognitive impairment, post stroke states: nicergoline administered at a dose of 10 mg 3 times a day. The therapeutic efficacy of the drug develops gradually, and treatment should be at least 3 months.

Vascular dementia: shows the use of 30 mg 2 times a day (at the same time every 6 months is recommended to consult with your doctor about whether to continue therapy).

Acute ischemic attacks, ischemic stroke due to atherosclerosis, thrombosis and embolism of cerebral vessels, transient ischemic attacks (transient ischemic attack, cerebral hypertensive crises) is preferable to start treatment with parenteral drug administration, and then continue taking the drug inside.

Peripheral circulatory disorders: nicergoline prescribed orally for 10 mg three times a day for an extended period of time (several months).

Valium for solution for injection

Intramusculary: 2.4 mg (2.4 ml), 2 times a day.

Intravenously by slow infusion. 4.8 mg in 100 ml of 0.9% sodium chloride solution or 5-10% dextrose; by a physician the dose may be administered several times a day.

B / A. 4 mg in 10 ml 0.9% sodium chloride solution; preparation is administered within 2 min.

The reconstituted solution is recommended to be used immediately after preparation.

Dose and duration of therapy method of administration depends on the nature of the disease. In some cases it is preferable to start therapy with parenteral administration, and then go to the ingestion of the drug for the maintenance treatment.

Special patient groups

Impaired renal function (serum creatinine ≥2 mg / dL). Sermion® recommended for lower therapeutic doses.

Side effect of Sermion

Rarely - marked reduction of blood pressure, mainly after parenteral administration, dizziness, dyspepsia, abdominal discomfort, skin rash, feeling of fever, drowsiness or insomnia. May increase the concentration of uric acid in the blood, and this effect is independent of dose and duration of therapy. Side effects are usually easy or moderately expressed.

Overdose of Sermion

Symptoms: marked reduction of blood pressure transient.

Treatment: special treatment is not usually required, the patient is enough for a few minutes to take a horizontal position. In exceptional cases, a sharp violation of cerebral blood flow and heart recommended the introduction of sympathomimetic agents under the constant control of blood pressure.


Sermion® may exacerbate the effects of antihypertensive drugs.

Sermion® metabolized by the action of CYP2D6 isoenzyme, so we can not exclude the possibility of interaction with drugs that are metabolized with the participation of the same enzyme.

In the application of nicergoline with acetylsalicylic acid may increase bleeding time.


Sermion® At therapeutic doses, usually has no effect on blood pressure, but in patients with hypertension, it can cause its gradual decrease.

After parenteral administration of the drug to patients Sermion® recommended to be in a horizontal position for several minutes after injection, especially at the beginning of treatment, due to possible occurrence of hypotension.

The drug acts slowly, so it should be taken for a long time, and the doctor should periodically (at least every 6 months) to evaluate the effect of treatment and appropriateness of its continuation.

Effects on ability to drive and use machines. Despite the fact that Sermion® improves reaction and concentration, its effect on the ability to drive and use sophisticated techniques not been specifically studied. In any case, care should be taken, given the nature of the underlying disease.
