The effectiveness of the drug lies in the following pharmacological actions:

  • stimulates humoral and cellular immunity
  • reduces inflammation
  • reduces the growth and reproduction of pathogenic microorganisms
  • heals ulcers and wounds of various etiologies
  • activates tissue repair and regeneration
  • increases cell resistance during chemotherapy and radiation

  • accelerates the healing process for various diseases
  • reduces the risk of nosocomial infection
  • derinat influences the immune system by stimulating T-helper cells and B-lymphocytes

Derinat is quickly metabolized in the human body, distributed through lymphatic vessels and entering tissues and organs. It accumulates most in the brain, lymph nodes, spleen, and thymus. Its smaller amount is in the stomach and liver. The medicine is partially excreted through defecation and urination. Complete removal of the active component from the body occurs after three days.

Derinat is a colorless liquid. Available in 2 forms:

Structural analogues of Derinat are the drugs Panagen, Deoxynate, Sodium deoxyribonucleate.

There are a huge number of drugs on the market that have an effect similar to Derinat: Grippferon, Anaferon, Viferon, Orvirem, Oscillococcinum, etc.

Derinat or Grippferon - which is better?

This question often arises for many mothers who are trying to protect their children from influenza and ARVI. The drugs are incomplete analogues, but at the same time they are very similar in therapeutic effect and indications.

The composition and origin of the drugs vary greatly, but biologically active proteins in both Grippferon and Derinat have immunomodulatory, antiviral and anti-inflammatory effects.

Some are inclined to consider Derinat a slightly more effective medicine than Grippferon, it is a stronger immunomodulator and has a wider spectrum of action. This explains the presence of Derinat in a dosage form for intramuscular injection (Grippferon is available only in the form of drops and nasal spray).

It should be remembered, however, that in cases where health is involved, self-medication is unacceptable, and the final decision on prescribing a particular drug is made by the attending physician, because the same drug can act differently on different patients.

The action of the drug is aimed at increasing the activity of immune cells. For this reason, it is often prescribed to children prone to frequent colds.

Research and reviews of Derinat drops for children and Derinat injection solution indicate that both of these dosage forms are well tolerated by children, have virtually no contraindications and rarely cause unwanted side reactions.

This allows the drug to be used to treat children of different ages, including newborns from the first days of life.

To treat upper respiratory tract infections, children are prescribed inhalations with Derinat. Nasal drops for children are indicated as a therapeutic and prophylactic remedy for runny nose, sinusitis, ARVI, influenza, etc.

As a rule, for preventive purposes, 1-3 drops are instilled into each nasal passage. If the drug is used to treat a child, the dose is increased to 3-5 drops. The frequency of administration can be every hour or hour and a half.

If there are problems with the adenoids, a runny nose or sinusitis, the most effective method of treatment with Derinat is tamponing the nasal passages with a cotton swab soaked in the solution with a frequency of procedures 6 times a day.

If a child is susceptible to conjunctivitis and other purulent-inflammatory ophthalmological diseases, the instructions recommend instilling the solution into the conjunctival sac of the affected eye, 1-2 drops three times a day.

Inflammation of the oral mucosa or gums can be relieved by rinsing with Derinat. If the child is too small and does not know how to rinse his mouth, the mucous membrane is treated several times a day with gauze soaked in a solution.

In complex therapy, the solution is often prescribed for the treatment of vulvovaginitis in girls, accompanied by perianal itching and intestinal disorders of helminthiasis, wounds, burns and frostbite.

Injections and drops of Derinat during pregnancy and breastfeeding are prescribed according to vital signs and only in cases where it is not possible to find specific alternative methods for treating the disease.

Two weeks ago I was treated for ARVI. I was discharged to work, but I feel weak, get tired quickly and sweat. What is this connected with? Tell me, what can I do to treat it?

Good afternoon After suffering viral respiratory infections, the so-called asthenovegetative syndrome remains, which causes the symptoms you described. At the same time, the immune system, which is the body’s defense system against harmful factors, also suffers. During this period, a gentle regime and conditions are necessary that promote rapid recovery of the body - dosed exercise and rest, strict adherence to sleep and wakefulness. It is advisable to take multivitamins and restore the immune system. In this case, the drug Derinat in the form of a 0.25% solution for external use is useful. Take 2 drops in each nasal passage 3-4 times a day for 3-4 weeks.

A month ago I had a cold. I took medication and after a week I was healthy, but now I got sick again, and at the appointment the doctor diagnosed ARVI and, along with the usual treatment - antibiotics, painkillers, prescribed me Derinat drops. Is it worth taking it, since only antibiotics helped me well before?

Hello! Derinat is a multi-acting drug. It belongs to drugs that restore immunity, enhances the effect of other drugs, and relieves toxic manifestations of both the disease and the medications taken. In addition, you have a decrease in the body's defenses, most likely this is due to a weakened immune system, which should protect the body from various harmful factors. The drug Derinat will help you solve all these problems. Take 2-3 drops of a 0.25% solution of Derinat intranasally (in each nasal passage) 3-4 times a day for 3-4 weeks.

The child is 5 years old, has atopic dermatitis, recurrent aphthous stomatitis, and now has urticaria. The doctor recommended a one-time injection of Derinat 5 ml, I am afraid to give the injection, since allergies are clearly present in the form of cough and hives. I'm asking for advice

Hello, the doctor prescribes treatment for you based on the clinical picture of the disease, and if he had doubts about this therapy, he would not use Derinat. But if you have doubts, try using the local form of Derinat in the form of a 0.25% rinse solution to treat aphthous stomatitis, first making sure that the child tolerates Derinat well.

Hello, after what period of time can Derinat be instilled into a 10-month-old child with a runny nose (we already instilled it a month ago and it helped us).

Hello! You can safely instill Derinat into your baby if the need for it arises (for example, if you have a runny nose), because the drug is absolutely harmless and does not lose its effectiveness with frequent use. However, I would advise you to examine your child to establish the causes of his frequent illness (take a bacterial culture of swabs from the mucous membranes of the upper respiratory tract for the presence of pathogenic microflora, a stool test to study the repertoire of intestinal microflora and a blood test to exclude congenital defects of the immune system), because . More serious problems may be hidden under the mask of frequent ARVI.

A child goes to kindergarten. Is it possible to use derinat for prevention so that he does not pick up any sores?

Hello! The child is 2.5 years old. He goes to kindergarten, but often catches colds or suffers from viral diseases. Often it is necessary to resort to treatment with antibiotics. Will your drug help in this case? Thank you.

Vladimir, good afternoon!! Since the child belongs to the group of frequently ill children, he needs to use Derinat not only to treat the disease that has arisen, but also for preventive purposes in order to reduce the frequency and duration of colds and prevent the development of complications.

Reviews of Derinat nasal drops

Like all immunomodulatory drugs, Derinat activates and stimulates immune defense mechanisms. However, it does not fight the infection directly. For this reason, in many cases people describe the drug as ineffective. Indeed, if a person has a progressive respiratory disease, then instilling Derinat will not bring any visible benefit. For example, judging by the reviews, the effectiveness of its use in the inflammatory process in the sinuses is low.

Reviews of the preventive use of Derinat drops note a decrease in the incidence of acute respiratory viral infections, as well as exacerbations of chronic pharyngitis, tonsillitis, rhinitis, and sinusitis.

Some reviews note rare cases of individual intolerance to medicinal drops. An allergic reaction to the drug is possible.

Reviews of Derinat for children

Mothers whose children often catch colds and also have enlarged adenoids note that pediatricians in most cases prescribe Derinat drops to the child. Reviews about the preventive use of the drug are positive. By increasing resistance to microbes accumulating in the nasopharynx, it is possible to:

  • reduce the number of inflammatory relapses and episodes of acute respiratory viral infections;
  • significantly improve the condition of the child’s nasopharyngeal mucosa.

Caution should be exercised when using Derinat in children with food allergies.

Reviews of Derinat for infants

There have been no negative reviews about the use of Derinat drops in infants. In some cases, for example, for bottle-fed children and premature babies, doctors recommend using the drug at the slightest runny nose.

Reviews note that Derinat is well tolerated by infants, as well as the absence of any adverse reactions.
