A drug that improves the microcirculation of the maze, used in the pathology of the vestibular apparatus. Betahistine acts mainly on histamine N1- and H3receptors of the inner ear and vestibular nuclei of the central nervous system. By direct agonistic effects on H1-receptors of the inner ear vessels, as well as indirectly through effects on H3-receptors improves microcirculation and capillary permeability, normalizes the endolymph pressure in the maze and cochlea. However, betahistine increases blood flow in the basilar artery.
It has a pronounced central effect, being an inhibitor of H3-receptors of the vestibular nerve nuclei. Improves conductivity in the neurons of the vestibular nuclei at the level of the brain stem.
