Trimetazidine is safe and well tolerated. The most commonly encountered side effects are gastric discomfort, nausea, headache and vertigo. However, the side effects are mild and non-specific.
Trimetazidine is an anti-ischemic (anti-anginal) metabolic agent, which improves myocardial glucose utilization through inhibition of long-chain 3-ketoacyl CoA thiolase activity, which results in a reduction in fatty acid oxidation and a stimulation of glucose oxidation. High fatty acid oxidation rates are detrimental during ischemia due to an inhibition of glucose oxidation leading to uncoupling of glycolysis and an increase in proton production, which has the potential to accelerate sodium and calcium overload in the heart. This leads to an exacerbation of ischemic injury and decreased cardiac efficiency during reperfusion.
No drug interactions have so far been reported. In particular, no interactions of Trimetazidine with beta-blockers, calcium antagonists, nitrates, heparin, hypolipidemic agents or digitalis have been reported.
Pregnancy: Studies in animals have not demonstrated a teratogenic effect. However, in the absence of clinical data and for safety reasons, prescription should be avoided during pregnancy.
Nursing Mothers: There is no information on the secretion of Trimetazidine into breast milk. However, breast feeding should be discontinued if the use of Trimetazidine is considered essential.
