Pharmacological properties directly depend on the time and method of taking the drug. When ingestion with normal functioning of the intestine, the maximum concentration in the blood is determined after 3 hours.
However, when taken after a plentiful meal or when there is a violation of absorption, the drug accumulates in the blood to the maximum values within 8 to 9 hours. The minimum time to achieve the maximum action of the drug is 1 hour. When used externally, it accumulates in deep layers of the skin after 30 minutes.
The drug is excreted by the kidneys and bile either in unchanged form( about 40 percent), or in the form of various secondary compounds( 60 percent).
The half-life of the drug varies widely and depends on the specific features of the accumulation of the maximum concentration and mode of administration.
In young people with rapid accumulation in the blood, half of the concentration decreases in 10-12 hours. Taking into account the age and the late reaching of the maximum of blood saturation, it is deduced in half for 22 to 24 hours. The maximum possible half-life is 25 hours.
The main clinical effects when taking medication are presented below:

Rutoside - the main component of Venorutone has good tolerability. But with the use of high doses of the drug, dyspeptic abnormalities can occur in the form of nausea, epigastric pain after taking the medication, heartburn.

Based on the experience of the drug, it should be noted its good effectiveness in the initial stages of the disease. Manifestations associated with swelling and heaviness in the legs are well corrected by the medicine.
However, monotherapy, especially gel, does not always bring the expected results. It is better to use the medication together with other venotonics.
In addition, individual recommendations on the use of 10 tablets per day for a long time, significantly reduces the compliance of patients, as the market has more affordable drugs that can be taken in a smaller dose and at a lower multiplicity.
