"what is Godex medicine?"

A combination of.....

Adenine HCl 2.5mg  (Vitamin B4)
Carnitine orotate 150mg  (antioxidant)
Cyanocobalamin 0.125mg  (Vitamin B12)
Pyridoxine HCl 25mg (Vitamin B6)
Riboflavin 0.5mg (Vitamin B2)
Liver extract antitoxic fraction 12.5mg  (liver-protecting substance from the liver of cattle)
Biphenyl Dimethyl Dicarboxylate 25mg (used to protect against chronic alcohol toxicity).


"to what specific health problem is it indicated for? "

Hep B, C, and cirrhosis.

"what is its action? "

It's supposed to be hepato-protectant.  But I have no idea whether it actually works.  Godex is not used in the US.

"what are its nursing considerations? "

Don't take it unless prescribed by your physician.

(Okay, so I made that up but it's the reasonable thing to do)


"what is the proper dosage of this drug?"

Follow your doctor's instructions.

Godex to my understanding is a vitamin supplement that is thought to help restore certain body functioning (like the liver), but there is little evidence to show that it actually treats liver disease.  It is not a cure for HepB.
