Pharmacological action

Nimesulide has a pronounced effect on the metabolism of arachidonic acid by inhibiting primarily cyclooxygenase-2.As a result of these processes decreases the biosynthesis of prostaglandins, which are mediators of inflammatory and allergic reactions, and affect the smooth muscles of bodies.

drug quickly blocks the output of histamine from mast cells, slows synthesize metalloproteinases, collagenase and elastase, thus preventing cartilage from breaking down.It suppresses the release of tumor necrosis factor alpha, reducing the effects of kinins, causing expansion of the vascular wall.It reduces the production of superoxide anions by neutrophils and formation of free radicals, which play an important role in the development of inflammatory reactions.

Due to the peculiarities of the dosage form of nimesulide nimesil efficiency develops quickly and lasts for 6 hours.


According to the instructions for use nimesil after receiving a suspension of the drug is quickly absorbed through the gastrointestinal tract, reaching the maximum therapeutic concentration in 2-3 hours.Characterized by high connection to blood proteins, to 97.5%, easily passes through the blood-tissue barriers.

drug metabolism occurs in the liver through P450 (CYP) 2C9: isoenzyme cytochrome.The main metabolite - hydroxynimesulide pharmacologically active derivative of nimesulide.Displayed through the bile in the form of metabolizing.

About 50% of the amount taken nimesil excreted by the kidneys.

Before applying the contents of the sachet (pellets) are poured into a beaker and add about 100 ml of water and stirred until a homogeneous suspension.Store can not be a ready solution, so it is prepared immediately before use.

  • Take after a meal, 1 sachet (pre-dissolved) 2 times a day.
  • maximum duration of receiving nimesil is 15 days, but in order to avoid the risk of adverse reactions is optimal assignment of short-course treatment (5-7 days).
  • Teens from 12 to 18 years old receive a dose Nimesil recommended above.
  • decision on dose adjustment in elderly patients is taken individually.

Patients with renal impairment (mild to moderate) does not require dose adjustment and reception intervals.In clinical trials in these patients have elongated twice the time interval to achieve maximum blood concentration of nimesulide in the half-life and the metabolites of the active substance, but keeping within the limits of the pharmacokinetic values.

Side effects

preparation Group

Possible reactions when combined with Nimesilom

Glucocorticosteroids Increased gastrointestinal bleeding and the risk of developing ulcers
Antiplatelet agents, SSRIs Increased risk of gastrointestinalintestinal bleeding
Anticoagulants Increased risk of bleeding
Diuretics Weakening action

lithium preparations The decrease lithium clearance
Substrates isoenzyme CYP2C9 concentration decrease in blood
Cytostatics Increased toxic effects
Cyclosporins Increased nephrotoxicity


By nimesil instructions when a patient has risk of ulcers, gastrointestinal bleeding, as well as simultaneous treatment of the above preparations, Nimesilom therapy begins with the lowest dose, observing the condition of the patient.At the slightest adverse reactions or adverse treatment ceased.
