Apevitin BC consists of Cyproheptadine Hydrochloride, Vitamin B, Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid).
Cyproheptadine Hydrochloride - A serotonin antagonist and a histamine H1 blocker used as antipruritic, appetite stimulant, antiallergic, and for the post-gastrectomy dumping syndrome, etc.
Indication: For treatment of perennial and seasonal allergic rhinitis, vasomotor rhinitis, allergic conjunctivitis due to inhalant allergens and foods, mild uncomplicated allergic skin manifestations of urticaria and angioedema, amelioration of allergic reactions to blood or plasma, cold urticaria, dermatographism, and as therapy for anaphylactic reactions adjunctive to epinephrine.
Apevitin BC (Cyproheptadine Hydrochloride) is a piperidine antihistamine. Unlike other antihistamines, this drug also antagonizes serotonin receptors. This action makes Apevitin BC (Cyproheptadine Hydrochloride) useful in conditions such as vascular headache and anorexia. Apevitin BC (Cyproheptadine Hydrochloride) does not prevent the release of histamine but rather competes with free histamine for binding at HA-receptor sites. Apevitin BC (Cyproheptadine Hydrochloride) competitively antagonizes the effects of histamine on HA-receptors in the GI tract, uterus, large blood vessels, and bronchial smooth muscle. Most antihistamines possess significant anticholinergic properties, but Apevitin BC (Cyproheptadine Hydrochloride) exerts only weak anticholinergic actions. Blockade of central muscarinic receptors appears to account for Cyproheptadine's antiemetic effects, although the exact mechanism is unknown. Apevitin BC (Cyproheptadine Hydrochloride) also competes with serotonin at receptor sites in smooth muscle in the intestines and other locations. Antagonism of serotonin on the appetite center of the hypothalamus may account for Cyproheptadine's ability to stimulate appetite. Apevitin BC (Cyproheptadine Hydrochloride) also has been used to counter vascular headaches, which many believe are caused by changes in serotonin activity, however it is unclear how Apevitin BC (Cyproheptadine Hydrochloride) exerts a beneficial effect on this condition.
Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid) - A six carbon compound related to glucose. It is found naturally in citrus fruits and many vegetables. Ascorbic acid is an essential nutrient in human diets, and necessary to maintain connective tissue and bone. Its biologically active form, vitamin C, functions as a reducing agent and coenzyme in several metabolic pathways. Apevitin BC (Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid)) is considered an antioxidant.
Indication: Used to treat Apevitin BC (Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid)) deficiency, scurvy, delayed wound and bone healing, urine acidification, and in general as an antioxidant. It has also been suggested to be an effective antiviral agent.
Ascorbic Acid (vitamin C) is a water-soluble vitamin indicated for the prevention and treatment of scurvy, as ascorbic acid deficiency results in scurvy. Collagenous structures are primarily affected, and lesions develop in bones and blood vessels. Administration of ascorbic acid completely reverses the symptoms of ascorbic acid deficiency.
