Vitamin preparation. Benfotiamine is a fat soluble derivative of thiamine (vitamin B1). Thiamine is converted to active thiamine pyrophosphate and is included as a coenzyme in the pyruvate decarboxylase, alpha ketoglutarate decarboxylase complexes, which are involved in the oxidative decarboxylation of pyruvic acid and alpha ketoglutaric acid; transketolase is a pentose phosphate shunt enzyme.
Vitamin B1 deficiency, confirmed by clinical and biochemical studies, developing on the background of:
- insufficient and inadequate nutrition (beriberi disease);
- parenteral nutrition for a long time;
- chronic alcoholism (alcoholic cardiomyopathy, Wernicke encephalopathy, Korsakov syndrome);
- increased need for vitamin B1.
Polyneuropathy due to vitamin B1 deficiency. Typical signs of such a deficiency are neurological disorders in the form of neuropathies with sensory impairments (pain, tingling, loss of sensation in the upper and lower extremities).

No customer reviews for the moment.
Dosage and Administration
For the treatment of vitamin B1 deficiency appoint 1 tab. 1 time / day
For the treatment of polyneuropathy caused by vitamin B1 deficiency, the initial dose is 1 tab. 2 times / day for 3 weeks, then appoint 1 tab. daily.
The duration of treatment depends on its effectiveness and is determined by the doctor.
A pill is taken without chewing, washing down with a small amount of water.
Allergic reactions: angioedema, urticaria, pruritus.
- deficiency of sucrase / isomaltase, fructose intolerance glucose-galactose malabsorption;
- increased individual sensitivity to the components of the drug.
Thiamine reduces the effect of depolarizing muscle relaxants (suxamethonia iodide and others), inhibited by fluorouracil.
Ethanol slows down the rate of absorption of thiamine after oral administration.
Pregnancy and Lactation
Pregnancy is a contraindication for the use of the drug.
In the elderly, adverse reactions other than those noted above were not noted.
It is not recommended to take a double dose of the drug, if the previous reception was missed.
In Wernicke's encephalopathy, the administration of dextrose must be preceded by the administration of thiamine.
