When alcohol is misused, dehydration takes place, because this alcohol has the effect of a diuretic.

Principle of operation for hangovers

In the solution of Regidron, there are components like glucose, potassium and sodium salts that, when alcohol etched or abstinence, have a beneficial effect on the body, because alcohol has a very negative effect on organic activity:

  • Abuse of strong alcohol leads to loss of necessary salts by the body, which threatens dehydration. Alcohol leads to loss of sodium, resulting in swelling and real exchange disorders in the cellular structures;
  • Alcohol also leads to loss of potassium, which adversely affects the activity of the vascular system and the myocardium;
  • Suffer from the loss of trace elements and nervous system structure, which causes soreness in the head or dizziness.

Similar conditions by narcologists are regarded as potentially dangerous, because they are fraught with the development of delirium or white fever.

In the abstinence state, the organism of alcohol dependent people especially needs glucose. Regidron helps to fill this deficiency, because it contains a glucose component that helps restore liver cells, especially those damaged by alcohol poisoning. In addition, glucose gives the body the necessary energy, which ensures the normal course of biochemical reactions.

Instruction for use

Regidron is not tied to meals and is accepted at any time. The contents of one sachet( depending on the amount of powder) are dissolved in 100 ml, 500 ml or a liter of boiled warm water( about 36-37 ° C).The resulting solution is drunk in small sips and often. Drinking large amounts of solution at once is not recommended to avoid the occurrence of vomiting.

For example, an adult 70-kilogram patient for an hour needs to drink 700 ml of the solution( whether 10 ml / kg).When the patient's condition improves, the dosage is halved, and if the state of health worsens, the solution is again drunk in the original volumes.

If the patient is vomiting or vomiting, then to drink Regidron solution is recommended chilled, in small repeating amounts, for example, 50 ml. If the patient is worried about irrepressible vomiting, the specialist can rehydrate through a nasogastric tube. Such manipulations are carried out only by a specialist and under his control, since only he can perform the procedure safely.


The drug is contraindicated in diabetes, kidney disorders, intestinal obstruction. With abstinence, patients often get high blood pressure. If there is such a symptom, taking Regidron's solution is also contraindicated.

It is necessary to strictly follow the instructions for diluting the powder, since the use of a solution of too high concentration for alcohol poisoning and intoxication can lead to hypernatremia, which manifests itself as weakness and lethargy, drowsiness and excitation of neuromuscular tissues, impaired consciousness, coma, or respiratory arrest.

If the above symptoms appear, further rehydration with this drug should be discontinued. Further therapy is consistent with the specialist.


There are many preparations similar to Regidron's actions like Trigidron, Reosolana, Citraglukosolan, Hydrovita, etc. There is also a kind of drug with a prefix Bio. Regiodron Bio contains prebiotic maltodextrin and lactobacillus, due to which not only fluid replenishment takes place, but also restorative-supporting effect on intestinal microflora.

Sometimes it happens that there is no Regidron powder in the medicine cabinet, and rehydration should be done urgently. In this case, homemade analogue of the drug will help. In a boiled warm( 40 ° C) water, dissolve 30 g of sugar, 2.5 g of soda, 3.5 g of salt. Take the resulting solution similar to the pharmacy Regigrina. You can dissolve in ½ liter of water 2 large spoonfuls of sugar, and for ¼ tsp.salt and soda, the resulting solution has a similar effect.

Such homemade solutions differ from the pharmacy option by the lack of potassium. To maximize the similarity of the composition, potassium chloride should be added to the solution: a liter of water + 4 tbsp.l.sugar + 0.5 tsp.soda, salt and potassium chloride. With the maximum temperature of the solution with the temperature of the body, the absorption of the components is best and fastest, however, it is better to cool the solution slightly during vomiting.
