Pharmacodynamic properties

Devamisol is a broad-spectrum antihelmintic. It has a mode of action comparable to that of nicotine and can therefore cause an increase in blood pressure and an increase in intestinal motility. Lemamisol has a ganglion stimulation effect (choline - mimetic) and as a result appear tonic muscle contractions, the parasite is paralyzed and eliminated. Devamisol is active on the adult stages of Ascaris and on the larval and adult stages of pulmonary parasites.

Pharmacokinetic peculiarities

After oral administration, levamisol is rapidly absorbed, with high plasma concentrations that can be reached after 1-2 hours. Devamisol is distributed throughout the body and is converted into less active metabolites in the liver.

In the first 12 hours after administration, levamisol is excreted approx. 40% through urine and thereafter in the first 8 days approx. 40% is excreted through faeces.
