Neoprate 500mg/5ml Injection

Prescription Required

Overview

Introduction

Neoprate 500mg/5ml Injection belongs to a group of medicines called anti-epileptics. It is used to treat two conditions – epilepsy and bipolar disorder. It also helps in the prevention of migraine. This way it prevents extreme mood swings and abnormal brain signals that trigger seizures (fits).

Neoprate 500mg/5ml Injection is given under the supervision of a healthcare professional and should not be self administered. It is advised to take it at the same time each day as this helps to maintain constant level of medicine in the body. If you have missed a dose, take it as soon as you remember it. You should finish the full course of treatment even if you feel better as stopping the medication without talking to your doctor may cause more seizures, or your bipolar disorder may get worse.

The most common side effects of this medicine include skin rashes, headache, feeling or being sick, difficulty sleeping, dizziness and feeling sleepy or drowsy. Most side effects wear off, but if they bother you or do not go away, tell your doctor. There may be ways of preventing or reducing these effects. Long-term treatment can cause weakness in your bones (osteoporosis), increasing your risk of breaking a bone.

Before taking this medicine, tell your doctor if you have kidney or liver problems, meningitis or depression or suicidal thoughts. Also let your healthcare team know about all other medications you are using as some may affect, or be affected by, this medicine, including contraceptive pills. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, Neoprate 500mg/5ml Injection can be taken if it is clearly needed but the dose may be adjusted. You should avoid driving or riding a bicycle if this medicine makes you drowsy or dizzy. You may need frequent blood tests to check how you are responding to this medicine.
