Copar 5mg/500mg Tablet is a combination of two medicines: metoclopramide and paracetamol which prevent migraine headaches accompanied by nausea/vomiting. Metoclopramide is a prokinetic which works on the region in the brain that controls vomiting. It increases the movement of the stomach and intestines, allowing food to move more easily through the stomach. Paracetamol is an analgesic (pain reliever) and anti-pyretic (fever reducer) which works by blocking the release of certain chemical messengers that cause fever and pain.
Taking Metoclopramide+Paracetamol / Acetaminophen with alcohol can cause liver damage.
