Introduction

Acuvert Tablet is used in the treatment of nausea, vomiting, and migraine caused by various conditions. It is also used to treat vertigo (dizziness) due to ear problems (Meniere’s syndrome). Additionally, this medicine is also used in mental illnesses such as short-term anxiety.

Acuvert Tablet is taken after meals in a dose and duration as advised by the doctor. The dose you are given will depend on your condition and how you respond to the medicine. You should take this medicine until your doctor tells you to stop. Let your doctor know about all other medications you are taking as some may affect, or be affected by this medicine.

The most common side effect is orthostatic hypotension (sudden lowering of blood pressure on standing). This is temporary and usually resolves with time. Contact your doctor straight away if you are at all concerned about these side effects. It may also cause drowsiness, so do not drive or do anything that requires mental focus until you know how this medicine affects you. Avoid drinking alcohol while taking this medicine as it can worsen your sleepiness.

Before taking this medicine you should let your doctor know if you have jaundice (yellowing of the skin or eyes), epilepsy, muscle weakness (myasthenia gravis), and increased pressure in the eye (glaucoma). Inform your doctor if you have liver, kidney, and heart problems. Pregnant or breastfeeding women should consult their doctor.

Uses of Acuvert Tablet

Benefits of Acuvert Tablet

In Treatment of Nausea

Acuvert Tablet blocks the action of chemicals in the body that can make you feel or be sick. It is often used to prevent nausea and vomiting that may be caused due to some medicines and it is also effective in treating nausea/vomiting after an operation (in adults only). The dose will be decided by your doctor and you must always take this medicine as it is prescribed.

In Treatment of Migraine

Acuvert Tablet helps treat and prevent migraine headaches. It changes the electrical activity in the brain, blocks chemicals responsible for pain sensation and also blocks signals that cause nausea/vomiting associated with migraines. By preventing and reducing the frequency of migraine headaches, it can help you carry out your daily activities and have a better quality of life.

In Treatment of Vertigo

Vertigo means a spinning sensation or dizziness that is triggered due to frequent movement or in people suffering from Meniere’s disease. It can happen due to many reasons but it may also occur without any underlying disease. Acuvert Tablet helps treat this sensation effectively. If you feel dizzy while getting up from the bed, sit for a while and then rise slowly to avoid having an accidental fall.

In Treatment of Short term anxiety

Acuvert Tablet reduces the symptoms of excessive anxiety and worry that are triggered only at the time of stressful conditions that last for a shorter duration. These could be job interviews, exams, stage performances, etc. It can effectively manage feelings of restlessness, tiredness, difficulty concentrating, and feeling irritable. Acuvert Tablet will therefore help you go about your daily activities more easily and be more productive.

Most side effects do not require any medical attention and disappear as your body adjusts to the medicine. Consult your doctor if they persist or if you’re worried about them

How to use Acuvert Tablet

How Acuvert Tablet works

Acuvert Tablet is a dopamine antagonist. Dopamine controls the region in the brain that causes nausea and vomiting and this medicine blocks the action of dopamine. Therefore, Acuvert Tablet shows an antiemetic action. Acuvert Tablet suppresses the vestibular apparatus in the inner ear and stops vertigo. The mechanism of action by which neuroleptics like prochlorperazine relieve headache is probably related to the dopamine D2 receptor antagonist. It has an antipsychotic effect by blocking the action of dopamine, which also affects thoughts and mood. So, it also helps to relieve short-term anxiety as well.
