What is Aspargin?

A preparation containing minerals.

What does Aspargin contain and how does it work?

Combined preparation containing Magnesium and potassium in the form of aspargates.
Magnesium takes part in numerous metabolic changes in the body, such as the synthesis and use of high-energy compounds and the synthesis of many enzymes.
It exerts a stabilizing effect on cell membranes. Maintains the state of mitochondria - so-called energy centers of the cell. Magnesium protects the lysosomes, it is needed to maintain the stability of the ribosomes and allows binding of mRNA to ribosomes. It is therefore the main cellular and intracellular stabilizer and participates in all basic physiological activities.
Magnesium has neurotropic activity, which causes its calming effect, and deficiency - neuromuscular hyperactivity. It exerts a depressive effect on the autonomic nervous system, and in excess it can lead to the paralysis of nerve ganglia. It also reduces the excitability of striated muscle fibers.
Magnesium has a protective effect on the heart muscle, reducing its hypoxia. Extends the time of conduction of stimuli in the infra-conducting system. It counteracts the accumulation of Calcium and connective tissue changes in the vascular walls. It is also a physiological antithrombotic factor that stabilizes platelets. It improves phagocytosis and lymphocyte production, which leads to alleviation of the inflammatory process.
Magnesium is involved in the development and mineralization of bones, and its deficiency causes faster aging of bone tissue. It is also necessary for the synthesis of certain hormones, e.g. insulin .
Magnesium participates in numerous defense processes of the system. It counteracts stress, hypoxia, allergy and inflammation, and stimulates phagocytosis and activates the complement system.
In cases of magnesium deficiency, neuromuscular hypersensitivity is observed, which may be manifested by tetany attacks. There are muscular tremors, generalized tonic-clonic contractions and athetic movements. Apathy, weakness, dizziness, mental disorders like neurosis, anxiety and confusion are also observed. Non-regularity of the heart may occur, increased susceptibility to stress and reduced resistance to infection.
Magnesium deficiency may be the result of its insufficient content in foods. It is also found in chronic alcoholism or in non-magnesium containing liquids during long-term parenteral nutrition. The disturbances of magnesium absorption occur in the syndrome of poor digestion and absorption as well as in liver cirrhosis. Also, excessive loss of magnesium by the kidneys leads to a deficiency.
Magnesium deficiency is accompanied by diseases such as chronic nephritis, polyuria phase in patients with acute renal failure , overactive thyroid and parathyroid glands, primary and secondary hyperaldosteronism syndrome, multiple myeloma and metastasis to the bone, and overdose of vitamin D.
The high magnesium loss can occur through the digestive tract in chronic vomiting.
Asmag B contains additionally Pyridoxine , which allows the active transport of magnesium and extends its residence time in the body. It also increases magnesium concentrations in erythrocytes and reduces its excretion in the urine.
Potassium is the main cation of intracellular fluid (a physiological sodium antagonist) of fundamental importance for the maintenance of acid-base balance and electrodynamic properties of cells. It activates numerous enzymatic reactions and is essential for many physiological processes (affects nerve transmission, myocardial contractility, smooth and transverse striated muscles, gastric secretion, kidney function, tissue synthesis and carbohydrate metabolism).
Potassium Magnesium works closely with each other in many physiological processes.

When to use Aspargin?

The preparation is indicated to make up for the deficiencies of magnesium and potassium in the following cases:
irregularities and hyperactivity of the heart, especially against the background of magnesium and potassium deficiencies
prevention of ischemic heart disease, a risk of heart attack
post-infarction convalescence
convalescence after infectious diseases or surgical procedures during which magnesium or potassium was lost
counteracting the negative effects of long-term use of cardiac glycosides and certain diuretics (thiazide diuretics, Furosemide ).

When not to use this preparation?

Unfortunately, even if there are indications to use the preparation, it can not always be used. You can not use the preparation if you are allergic (you are hypersensitive) to any of the ingredients.
Contraindications to the use of the preparation are also:
kidney failure
urinary tract infection
atrioventricular block
myasthenia gravis
significant hypotension.

Take special care with Aspargin?

Certain diseases and other circumstances may constitute a contraindication to use or indication to change the dosage of the preparation. In some situations it may be necessary to carry out specific check-ups.
The drug should not be used in the case of acute dehydration, extensive tissue damage (eg burns large areas of the body).
In case of long-term use, in the case of severe diarrhea and in patients treated with cardiac glycosides, the concentration of potassium and magnesium in the blood should be monitored. Caution should be exercised in people with peptic ulcer disease.
In the case of people with cancer, do not use the preparation without consulting your doctor.

Does this preparation affect the ability to drive vehicles?
There was no effect on the ability to drive or use machines / machines

Dosage of Aspargin

The preparation is in the form of tablets for oral use. Use the preparation as recommended.

Can I use other preparations in parallel?

Tell your doctor about all medicines you have recently taken, including those that are over the counter.In particular, consult your doctor if you are using any of the medicines listed below, as you may need to change your dosage or stop taking your medicine.
Use with antibiotics from the group of Tetracycline s, preparations containing phosphates or calcium, iron and fluorine compounds leads to mutual reduction of absorption from the gastrointestinal tract. Digitalis glycosides in combination with potassium can lead to arrhythmia. Do not use with atropine or hyoscyamine (risk of ulceration of the intestine). Diuretics (amiloride, spironolactone, triamteren) and angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors (captopril and Enalapril ) cause an increase in potassium in the blood. Cortisone reduces the effect of potassium. The potassium contained in the preparation reduces the absorption of vitamin B12.

What side effects can occur?

Like all medicines, Aspargin can cause side effects, although they will not occur in all patients who use this medicine. Remember that the expected benefits of using the drug are usually greater than the damage resulting from the occurrence of side effects.
The following may occur: atrioventricular conduction disorders, nausea and diarrhea, redness of the skin, insomnia, muscular weakness.
