The doctor prescribed this tool for the prevention of infectious complications after surgery on the intestines. I read the instructions. I cannot boast of medical education, but even without it, there were doubts that simple enzymes could help me in some way. Is that improve the financial situation of the manufacturer. Saw one pack and abandoned. No infection clung.
Olga, 32, Moscow
She took Wobenzym while treating pneumonia. The doctor prescribed it so that the antibiotic works better. He said that the tool helps to cope with the inflammatory reaction, improves immunity. The course of therapy was without any complications. Antibiotics took about 2 weeks. During this time, she took more than 200 tablets of Wobenzym. I do not know how justified his appointment was, but I recovered, and this is the main thing. The doctor knows what to prescribe.
Opinion of doctors
Leonid Slubsky, therapist, St. Petersburg
The tool from the category of those prescribed for any diseases. What they are not only trying to treat is prescribed for sinus and genital diseases in gynecology. The truth is that there is no scientific evidence for such an approach. Wobenzym improves metabolism, has anti-inflammatory, immunomodulatory effects, but this is only in theory.
The drug is in the same category as Longidase and other enzymes. For me, this is a simple pumping money. An example of how to distribute the drug and sell it from 100 diseases, despite the fact that there is no scientific evidence of its effectiveness. I do not recommend.
Anastasia Kulish, dermatologist, Moscow
I tried to prescribe this tool to my patients, but after a while I stopped it. Reputation is more expensive. The cost of Wobenzym in pharmacies is too high, so many patients pay special attention to it when buying.
There are often well-founded questions about how good this drug is. After talking with one educated patient, I realized that the remedy was little better than a placebo. I looked for detailed information about him - there are no qualitative studies of clinical efficacy. The data is blurry. There was no assessment of the effectiveness of treatment compared with placebo. All this led to the idea that the manufacturers either didn’t study their own product very well, or even know themselves that they are selling a “dummy”.
Since then, I forgot about Wobenzym. I cannot say that the drug is ineffective, but I strongly doubt the expediency of its administration. Buy at your own risk.
