Aescin, the active principle of horse chestnut in pure form, has antiexudative, anti-inflammatory and anti-oedema effects at the site of the lesion. It quickly relieves symptoms caused by localised swelling (sensations of pressure, pain, etc.) without adverse effects on mineral metabolism or the blood-forming system.
When to take Reparil-Dragees:
Varicosis; leg ulcers; haemorrhoids; thrombophlebitis; traumatic swellings (injuries); post-concussional headache; tenosynovitis; painful lesions of the vertebral column.
How to take Reparil-Dragees:
Treatment should be commenced with 2 dragees 3 times daily, taken with fluid after meals. In milder cases and as a maintenance dose 1 dragee should be taken 3 times daily.
Dosage for children:
1 dragee 2 – 3 times daily taken with fluid after meals.
Pre-existing renal damage; renal failure; renal insufficiency; Rhesus incompatibility in pregnancy.
