A unique innovative form of Phenazepam®, developed by Valenta Pharm, appeared in the Russian pharmacies in early December.

Orally dispersible 10-tablet Phenazepam® (1mg) packs is a new original Valenta Pharm’s product.

Innovative drug dosage form is the result of 7+ years of experience, as well as a significant investment in development and research. Orally dispersible Phenazepam® tablets have a unique drug from among benzodiazepines with no analogues on the Russian market1.

The production of the orally dispersible 10-tablet Phenazepam® (1mg) packs incorporate a new technology that fully corresponds with the Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) regulations and uses all the benefits of the modern, high-tech research and production Valenta Pharm’s complex.

The main advantages of using ODTs in psychiatry are a quick therapeutic effect comparable in strength to peroral drugs, as well as a significant increase in early and overall patient compliance. I find the creation of new orally dispersible dosage forms of anxiolytic drugs intended for the rapid relief of anxiety syndrome’s acute manifestations to be particularly interesting2”.

I am sure that the new drug will be recognized and widely used”.
