User Feedback


FAQs

Q. Is ARZU a mood stabilizer?

ARZU is effective in treating manic episodes and other mood symptoms of bipolar disorder but not for the depressive episodes. Therefore, it can be combined with mood stabilizers like valproate to treat bipolar disorders.

Q. How long does ARZU take to work?

The benefit of ARZU may appear after a few days or few weeks of starting ARZU. It may take 4-6 weeks to see the full benefits of this medicine.

Q. Does ARZU affect you sexually?

Yes, ARZU may cause prolonged and painful erection (priapism) in some patients. It may also cause impulse control disorder wherein the patient may develop urges or cravings that are irresistible and unusual for that person. In this case, the patient may develop an abnormally high sex drive or may experience an increase in sexual thoughts or feelings. Consult your doctor who may modify your dose or may advise to stop ARZU.

Q. What is the most important thing that I should know about ARZU?

ARZU is not approved in elderly patients with dementia as it may increase the risk of causing death. Dementia is a brain disorder that affects the ability to remember, think clearly, communicate, and perform daily activities. This may further cause changes in mood and personality. Furthermore, patients with depression should be closely monitored when being given ARZU, as they can develop suicidal tendencies.

Q. What should I avoid while using ARZU?

ARZU may commonly cause sleepiness, sedation, dizziness, blurred vision, and double vision. Avoid driving and using heavy machinery if you experience these symptoms. You should also avoid over-exposure to heat or getting dehydrated by avoiding direct sunlight, staying indoors, drinking plenty of water and avoiding overexercise.

Q. Can ARZU be taken by diabetics?

ARZU may cause an increase in blood sugar levels. Extremely high levels of blood sugar may cause coma and death. Therefore, if you have diabetes, you should stay alert and check your blood sugar levels regularly.
