Doxium( Doxium) is a preparation with angioprotective and antiaggregatory action, which is used for diseases associated with impaired vascular wall permeability and microcirculatory disorders. The drug is manufactured by the pharmaceutical company OM Pharma from Switzerland.
The product is available in capsule form. Each capsule contains 500 mg of active substance - calcium dobesilate. In addition to it, the preparation contains auxiliary ingredients.
