What is Alerten?

Ubiquinone is a vitamin-like substance that is made naturally in the body. Ubiquinone is also known as Coenzima, Ubidcarenone, Ubidécarénone, and Ubiquinol.

Ubiquinone has been used in alternative medicine as a likely effective aid in treating coenzyme Q-10 deficiency, or reducing the symptoms of mitochondrial disorders (conditions that affect energy-production in the cells of the body).

Ubiquinone is also possibly effective in preventing migraine headaches, lowering blood pressure, preventing a second heart attack, or slowing the progression of early Parkinson's disease. Ubiquinone is also possibly effective in improving symptoms in people with congestive heart failure, nerve problems caused by diabetes, Huntington's disease, muscular dystrophy, or macular degeneration (age-related vision loss).

Ubiquinone has also been used to treat Alzheimer's disease, high cholesterol, or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (Lou Gehrig's disease). However, research has shown that ubiquinone may not be effective in treating these conditions.

Research also has shown that ubiquinone is not likely to be effective in increasing athletic performance.

Other uses not proven with research have included treating asthma, COPD, cancer, diabetes, certain heart problems, fibromyalgia, hepatitis C, kidney problems, high blood pressure during pregnancy, muscle problems caused by taking "statin" cholesterol medicine, and other conditions.

Ubiquinone is often sold as an herbal supplement. There are no regulated manufacturing standards in place for many herbal compounds and some marketed supplements have been found to be contaminated with toxic metals or other drugs. Herbal/health supplements should be purchased from a reliable source to minimize the risk of contamination.

Ubiquinone may also be used for purposes not listed in this product guide.

Alerten indications

infoAn indication is a term used for the list of condition or symptom or illness for which the medicine is prescribed or used by the patient. For example, acetaminophen or paracetamol is used for fever by the patient, or the doctor prescribes it for a headache or body pains. Now fever, headache and body pains are the indications of paracetamol. A patient should be aware of the indications of medications used for common conditions because they can be taken over the counter in the pharmacy meaning without prescription by the Physician.

How to use Alerten

This product is taken by mouth as directed. Follow all directions on the product package. If you are uncertain about any of the information, consult your doctor or pharmacist.

If you are using a liquid or powder form, carefully measure your dose using a medication-measuring device or spoon. Do not use a household spoon because you may not get the correct dose. If your liquid form is a suspension, shake the bottle well before measuring each dose. If your liquid comes in a tube/ampule, take the dose immediately after opening and discard any left over liquid. Follow the manufacturer's directions for mixing the powder form.

If you are using chewable tablets or wafers, chew each dose thoroughly before swallowing.

If you are using a tablet made to dissolve in the mouth, dry your hands before handling the tablet. Place each dose on the tongue and allow to dissolve completely, then swallow it with saliva or water.

Do not crush or chew extended-release tablets. Doing so can release all of the drug at once, increasing the risk of side effects. Also, do not split the tablets unless they have a score line and your doctor or pharmacist tells you to do so. Swallow the whole or split tablet without crushing or chewing.

If your condition persists or worsens, or if you think you may have a serious medical problem, seek immediate medical attention.
