    local anesthetic and membrane stabilizing effect, inhibits
    passage of nerve impulses in motor neurons and primary
    afferent fibers from the internal organs to the central nervous
    the system. This leads to blocking of mono and polysynaptic
    spinal reflexes.
  • Promotes secondary inhibition of mediator release by
    suspension of calcium ions in the nerve synapses.
  • Enhances peripheral circulation through expansion
    vessels, has antispasmodic and adrenoblokiruyuschee effect.
