Neopride Injection

Prescription Required

Product introduction

Neopride Injection is a medicine used in the treatment of gastrointestinal problems like functional dyspepsia, nausea, vomiting, and diabetic gastroparesis. It improves food movement and treats disorders of the stomach and intestines.

Neopride Injection is given as an injection by a doctor or a nurse. It is usually recommended when the patient exhibits severe nausea and vomiting and oral administration is not feasible. It is generally given 2-3 times a day or as recommended by the doctor. Get the injection as many times as the doctor has prescribed and do not stop it suddenly. Once the symptoms subside, you can switch to oral therapy.

Some common side effects of this medicine include menstrual disorders, breast enlargement in males, increased prolactin level in the blood, and increased libido. It may also cause drowsiness in some people, so do not drive or do anything that requires mental focus until you know how this medicine affects you. Consult your doctor immediately if there are missed periods, abnormal milk secretion, or changes in sexual desire. They may be able to suggest ways to prevent or reduce the side effects.

Before taking this medicine, let your doctor know if you have any medical conditions such as heart disease, history of epilepsy, or gastrointestinal hemorrhage. Let your doctor also know about all the other medicines that you are taking. Pregnant and breastfeeding women should consult their doctors before taking this medicine.

Uses of Neopride Injection

Benefits of Neopride Injection

In Treatment of Functional dyspepsia

Functional dyspepsia is another term for indigestion that is not associated with a specific cause. It may cause symptoms such as an early feeling of fullness after eating, stomach pain or discomfort, nausea, and bloating. Neopride Injection helps treat these symptoms by increasing the rate of stomach emptying. Some simple lifestyle changes can help stop or reduce these symptoms. Think about what foods trigger your symptoms and try to avoid them; eat smaller, more frequent meals; try to lose weight if you are overweight and try to find ways to relax. Do not eat within 3 to 4 hours of going to bed.

In Treatment of Nausea

Neopride Injection blocks the action of chemicals in the body that can make you feel or be sick. This medicine helps you feel better and at ease. It is given as an injection by a doctor and you should follow the doctor’s instructions carefully to get the most benefit from this medicine.

In Treatment of Diabetic gastroparesis (diabetic nerve disease affecting stomach)

Diabetic gastroparesis is a condition in diabetic patients in which the stomach cannot empty digested food normally. Symptoms may include heartburn, nausea, vomiting, and feeling full faster than normal while eating. Neopride Injection helps relieve these symptoms and restores normal movement of food in the stomach and intestines. This improves your digestion and makes you feel better.

Side effects of Neopride Injection

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 Neopride Injection

How Neopride Injection works

Neopride Injection is an atypical antipsychotic. It works by increasing the release of acetylcholine (a chemical messenger). This increases the movement of stomach and intestines, and prevents reflux (acid going up to the food pipe) as well as nausea or vomiting. Since it modulates the motor function of the gastrointestinal tract, it also improves delayed gastric emptying.
