SummaryPlasma concentrations of orphenadrine were measured by a specific gaschromatographic method in 5 healthy male volunteers after a single oral dose of orphenadrine hydrochloride 100mg. The single dose pharmacokinetic profile of orphenadrine was evaluated from these data. The elimination half-life ranged from 13.2–20.1 h after the commercial tablet formulation. Plasma concentrations, determined in volunteers and patients under different conditions of repeated oral administration of the same… 
Pharmacokinetic, metabolism and withdrawal time of orphenadrine in camels (Camelus dromedarius) after intravenous administration.
The pharmacokinetics of orphenadrine following a single intravenous (i.v.) dose was investigated in six camels and ORPH and its metabolites in camel were extensively eliminated in conjugated form.
Effect of multiple administration of orphenadrine or mono-N-desmethylorphenadrine on cytochrome P-450 catalyzed reactions in the rat
These results show that during chronic administration of orphenadrine or tofenacine, the in vivo disposition of concomitantly ingested compounds is determined by the influence of induction, high substrate and/or metabolite levels and complexation of cytochrome P-450.
Pharmacokinetic study of orphenadrine using high-performance liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (HPLC-MS/MS).
A simple, rapid, and accurate HPLC-MS/MS method with simple protein precipitation for the determination of orphenadrine with satisfactory accuracy, extraction recovery, specificity and stability was developed and validated.
Determination of orphenadrine plasma levels using HPLC with diode array detection and a novel solid-phase extraction procedure in psychiatric patients.
The method developed, based on liquid chromatography with diode array detection, seems to be suitable for routine analysis of orphenadrine in psychiatric patients and was applied to plasma samples from a psychotic patient who had tried to poison himself with 1000 mg of or phenadrine and was undergoing polypharmacy.
Sensitive Spectrophotometric Method for the Determination of Olanzapine and Orphenadrine in Pure and Dosage Forms by Ternary Complex Formation with Eosin and Lead(II)
The present paper describes a simple and sensitive spectrophotometric method for the determination of olanzapine (OLZ) and orphenadrine (ORP) in pure and in dosage forms. The developed method is
Pilot study of orphenadrine as a novel treatment for muscle cramps in patients with liver cirrhosis
Orphenadrine is safe and effective in treatment of muscle cramps in patients with liver cirrhosis, and the pain score improved significantly, with no significant difference between their occurrences in the two groups.
Inhibition of In Vitro Metabolism of Opioids by Skeletal Muscle Relaxants
This first comprehensive study of the inhibitory effect of this class of drugs suggests that some of them may produce significant drug–drug interactions with opioids that are frequent comedications with skeletal muscle relaxants.
Orphenadrine is an uncompetitive N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor antagonist: binding and patch clamp studies
It is shown that orphenadrine inhibits [3H]MK-801 binding to the phencyclidine (PCP) binding site of the N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA)-receptor in homogenates of postmortem human frontal cortex with a Ki-value of 6.0 ± 0.7 μM.
Inhibition of diazepam metabolism in microsomal-and perfused liver preparations of the rat by desmethyldiazepam, N-methyloxazepam and oxazepam
SummaryHydroxylated metabolites of diazepam can be conjugated and are therefore generally thought not to affect the metabolism of diazepam. Liver microsomes, obtained from phenobarbital-pretreated
Orphenadrine in treatment of muscle cramps in cirrhotic patients: a randomized study
Frequency, duration, and pain score improved significantly after 1 month of orphenadrine therapy in comparison to placebo, and is considered as promising safe drug for treatment of muscle cramps associated with liver cirrhosis.


Metabolism of orphenadrine citrate in man.
Blood levels of orphenadrine regardless of the route of administration are very low as a result of rapid distribution into tissue depots characteristic of most basic compounds.
Aspects of the biliary excretion of orphenadrine and its N-demethylated derivative, tofenacin, in the rat.
A compartment model is proposed to explain various aspects of the time course of biliary excretion of these drugs in bile fistula rats and there is strong evidence that compounds of the type studied undergo enterohepatic circulation.
The concentrations of orphenadrine and its N-demethylated derivatives in rat brain, after intraperitoneal administration of orphenadrine and tofenacine.
Thin-layer chromatography of brain extracts showed that both orphenadrine and tofenacine penetrate rapidly into the brain, and it is presumed that in the case of both drugs, a two-pool system is involved.
Orphenadrine (Disipal), serum thyroxine and thyroid function.
It is concluded that orphenadrine in a dosage up to 300 mg per day does not influence thyroid function and increases serum thyroxine levels as measured by the competitive protein binding technique of Murphy and Pattee.
Effect of product inhibition on kinetics of drug elimination
In view of recent indications that drug biotransformation processes may be inhibited in vivoby the products of such processes, pharmacokinetic studies have been carried out to determine the possible
Sensitive and specific gas chromatographic and extraction method for the determination of orphenadrine in human body fluids.
A gas chromatographic and extraction method for the assay of orphenadrine in plasma and urine has been developed, in which diphenhydramine is used as the internal standard and concentrations down to 1 ng/ml can be determined.
A general purpose curve fitting program for class and research use
This paper describes the structure, availability, and use of a curve fitting program that can be used by the typical student.
