Product introduction

Manohexy Injection is used with other medicines to treat Parkinson’s disease. It is also used to treat severe movement side effects caused by certain drugs (drug-induced movemnet disorder).

Manohexy Injection is given under the supervision of a healthcare professional. Do not skip any doses and finish the full course of treatment even if you feel better. It is important that this medication is not stopped suddenly without talking to doctor as it may result in a worsening of symptoms.

Some common side effects of this medicine include nausea, vomiting, constipation, and blurred vision. It even causes dizziness and sleepiness, so do not drive or do anything that requires mental focus until you know how this medicine affects you. Dry mouth may occur commonly while using this medicine so, try to do frequent mouth rinses, maintain good oral hygiene, and increase water intake. Avoid wearing contact lenses as it may cause dry eyes as well. It is important to inform your doctor if you suffer from glaucoma or have trouble in passing urine.

Before using Manohexy Injection, you should tell your doctor if you've ever had heart problems, problems with passing urine, liver or kidney disease.

Manohexy Injection is also used to treat side effects like abnormal movements caused by antipsychotic drugs.

It is advisable not to stop this medicine without consulting your doctor. This is because a sudden stoppage can cause symptoms of Parkinson's disease to return. You can see that the drug is working if you are able to do your daily activities more easily and have a more active and better quality of life.
