Formulation and Active Substance Content

Tribestan is an original non-hormonal preparation of plant origin. Its active components are steroid saponins of furostanol type isolated from the epigeous part of the Tribulus terrestris L. plant. The preparation has been standardized on a base of the predominating compound, protodioscine, not less than 45%.

Dosage and Mode of Application

In men: The dosage and duration of treatment are being determined by the character and severity of the condition. Most often, the dose is 1 - 2 tablets of 250 mg 3 times a day with meals. The duration of the therapy in some cases should be at least 40 - 50 days.

It is known that a period of at least 80 days is needed between the spermatogonial division and the formation of a mature spermatozoon. This imposes the necessary minimal therapeutic cycle to be 80 – 90 days.

In women: The treatment is strictly individually adjusted and depends upon the severity of the condition. The usual dose is 1 - 2 tablets of 250 mg 3 times a day with meals. The combined administration of Tribestan with ovulation stimulating preparations is recommended in some cases.

Use during Pregnancy or Lactation

The animal experiments showed that Tribestan possesses a very low toxicity. No evidence of any carcinogenic, embryotoxic and/or teratogenic effect was found. However, the preparation must be discontinued whenever a pregnancy is established.

Cautions and Specific Warnings

In treatment of women the transition from the effect-achieving to the maintenance dose must be gradually realized. The abrupt reduction of the dose that achieved the effect results in a renewed triggering of the whole complex of signs and symptoms.

Regimen 1

Tribestan is usually prescribed in a dose of 2 tablets 3 times per day for 20 days. Thereafter, the dose is being reduced by 1 tablet every 4 - 5 days to reach maintenance dose of 1 tablet 2 times a day whereas the term of treatment depends upon the achieved effect.

Regimen 2

Alternatively, Tribestan may also be administered in a dose of 2 tablets 2 times per day for a 30-day course with a following dose reduction to 1 tablet 2 times daily every 4 - 5 days.

Regimen 3

Tribestan may be administered in a dose of 1 tablet 3 times a day continuously for a longer period of time (up to one year).
