Pharmacological action

Trinalgin is a combined drug which includes: non-narcotic analgesic methamizole sodium, myotropic antispasmodic drug of pitofenone and m-cholinoblocking agent of fenpiverinum bromide.
Metamizole sodium has analgesic, antipyretic and weak anti-inflammatory effect.
Pitophenone, like papaverine, has direct myotropic effect on the smooth muscles of the internal organs and relaxes them.
Fenpiverinum bromide due to m-holinoblokiruyuschego effect has additional antispasmodic effect on smooth muscle.
The combination of the three components of the drug increases mutually their pharmacological effect.


The drug is quickly absorbed; the drug after intramuscular administration is largely absorbed from the injection site. Binding with plasma proteins - 50-60 %.
The drug at therapeutic doses is excreted in breast milk.
Metamizole sodium is biotransformed intensively in the liver. Only after intravenous administration, a small concentration of unchanged metamizole sodium is detected in the plasma. The main metabolites include 4-methylaminoantipyrine, 4-formylaminoantipyrine, 4-amino-antipyrine and 4-acetylaminoantipyrine.
Approximately 20 additional metabolites, including glucuronic acid derivatives, have been identified. The main four metabolites are identified in the cerebrospinal fluid.
The drug is excreted mainly by the kidneys Pitophenone and fenpiverinum bromide are characterized by incomplete resorption, and they are completely ionized. They are poor soluble. They do not cross the blood-brain barrier. They are metabolised in the liver by oxidative reactions. Pitofenone is mainly excreted by the kidneys. The maximum plasma concentration is reached within 30 - 60 minutes. Half-life is 1.8 hours. Fenpiverinum bromide is excreted by the kidneys in the amount of 32.4-40.4% unchanged, 2.5-5.3% of the substance is excreted in the bile.

With care
The drug shall be administered with care and under supervision of a doctor to patients with liver or renal dysfunction, with a tendency to arterial hypotension, bronchial asthma, intolerance to acetylsalicylic acid, polyps of the nose.
Administration during pregnancy and lactation period
The drug is contradicted during pregnancy. If the drug administration is required during lactation breastfeeding shall be discontinued for the period of treatment.


Parenteral administration shall be applied only when oral administration is impossible or in case of impaired absorption from the gastrointestinal tract. Special care is required for administration of more than 2 ml of solution (the risk sharp blood pressure drop).
Intravenous administration shall be slow, in the lying position and with blood pressure, hear rate and respiratory rate monitoring.
When treating children and patients receiving cytostatic agents, metamizole sodium shall be administered only under the doctor’s supervision.
A long needle shall be used for intramuscular administration. Ethanol administration is not recommended during the treatment with the drug. In case of suspected agranulocytosis or thrombocytopenia stop administration of the drug.
The drug shall not be used for relief of stomach ache (until the causes are identified). Intolerability is very rare, but the risk of anaphylactic shock after intravenous administration of the drug is relatively higher than after oral administration.
Patients with atopic bronchial asthma and pollinosis have increased risk of allergic reactions.
Effects on ability to drive and use machines
During the treatment avoid driving and performing other potential hazardous activities requiring increased attention focusing and quick psychomotor reactions.

Interaction with other medicines

Because of the high risk of pharmaceutical incompatibility, Trianalgin shall not be mixed with other drugs in the same syringe.
Roentgenocontrast drugs, colliod blood substitutes and penicillin shall not be administered during treatment with the drugs containing metamizole sodium.
Combined administration with H2 histamine antagonists, butyrophenone and phenothiazine derivatives, tricyclic antidepressants, amantadine and quinidine may increase m-cholinoblocking effect.
The drug increases the effect of ethanol.
Simultaneous administration with chlorpromazine or other phenothiazine derivatives may cause severe hyperthermia.
Tricyclic antidepressants, oral contraceptives and allopurinol increase the toxicity of the drug.
Simultaneous administration with phenylbutazone, barbiturates and other hepatoinductors reduces the efficacy of metamizole sodium.
Sedative and anxiolytic drugs (tranquilizers) increase the analgesic effect of metamizole sodium.
Simultaneous administration with cyclosporine reduces the concentration of the latter in the blood.
Metamizole sodium displaces oral hypoglycaemics, indirect anticoagulating agents, glucocorticosteroids and indometacin from the binding with protein and enhances their effect.
Thiamazol and sarcolysine enhance the risk of leukopenia development.
The effect is enhanced with codeine, H2 histamine antagonists, propranalol (slower inactivation of metamizole sodium).
If simultaneous administration of Trinalgin with these and other drugs is required please consult your doctor.
All the above interactions with other drugs are indicated for metamizole sodium, data for pituopenone and fenpiverinum bromide are not available.
