Metadoxine is a liver-protective agent used in the treatment of alcohol intoxication and fatty liver.

Metadoxine is used in the treatment of long-term and severe alcohol intoxication. This medication works by accelerating the clearance of alcohol from the blood. It is also being used nowadays for the treatment of ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity syndrome) and Fragile X syndrome.

On using Metadoxine you may experience side effects of diarrhoea, skin rash, drowsiness and numbness. If your reactions do not go away even after a few days, visit your doctor right away.
