Karnilev Solution

Levocarnitine has an anabolic effect, stimulates the secretion of gastric juice, slows down the breakdown of protein and carbohydrate molecules. Reduces excess body weight and reduces muscle fat.


Each 1 ml contains: L-carnitine – 100 mg;

excipients: malic acid, sodium methylparaben, sodium propylparaben, sodium saccharin, orange flavor, purified water.

Indications for use

  • secondary carnitine deficiency – congenital (organic aciduria), acquired alimentary carnitine deficiency (malabsorption, intestinal diseases), in patients receiving hemodialysis for a long time and having the following symptoms – severe persistent muscle spasms, myopathies, loss of muscle mass, skeletal muscle weakness, symptoms hypotension, anemia, impaired renal reabsorption (CRF)
  • impaired metabolism in the myocardium in the case of ischemic cardiomyopathy (in the myocardium, the utilization of fatty acids as an energy source occurs very intensively, therefore it especially needs L-carnitine, after its use, an increase in the force of contractions is noted, prevention of further muscle degeneration, normalization of the ECG)
  • angina pectoris, acute myocardial infarction, a state of severe hypoperfusion due to cardiogenic shock
  • damage to the central and peripheral nervous system, respiratory distress – syndrome, impaired psychomotor development, seizures, ataxia, pyramidal disorders, disorders of the oculomotor nerves (external ophthalmoplegia, ptosis, etc.)
  • polyneuropathy with liver damage (progressive hepatomegaly, liver fibrosis, liver failure phenomenon, kidney damage (Fanconi triad, phosphaturia, glucosuria, aminoacidizing), endocrine disorders (growth retardation, hypoglycemia), hearing impairment (sensorineural deafness), visual impairment ( optic atrophy, retinal pigment degeneration, cataract), gastrointestinal disorders
  • diseases and conditions accompanied by decreased appetite, weight loss, wasting in adults and children
  • anorexia nervosa syndrome (anorexia nervosa) and physical exhaustion in mental illness, dyscirculatory and traumatic encephalopathy
  • chronic pancreatitis with exocrine insufficiency
  • chronic gastritis with decreased secretory function
  • consequences of birth trauma and newborn asphyxiation
  • newborns, premature and term-born children with weakened food reflexes (flaccid sucking), with hypotrophy, hypotension and adynamia
  • respiratory distress syndrome in newborns, nursing premature newborns on complete parenteral nutrition
  • neonatal jaundice
  • during the period of convalescence after serious illnesses and surgical interventions;
    growth retardation and underweight in children and adolescents under 16 years old, mild thyrotoxicosis in children and adolescents under 16 years old
  • as part of complex therapy for skin diseases (psoriasis, seborrheic eczema, focal scleroderma and discoid lupus erythematosus)
  • prolonged intense sports training or other increased loads (as an anabolic and adaptogen) to increase performance, endurance and reduce fatigue
  • exogenous constitutional obesity.
