Olet Plus 20 mg/5 mg Tablet


Overview

Introduction

Olet Plus 20 mg/5 mg Tablet is a prescription medicine used in the treatment of bipolar depression. It works by increasing the level of chemical messengers in the brain which improve mood and physical symptoms of depression.

Olet Plus 20 mg/5 mg Tablet can be taken with or without food. Prefer taking it in the morning as it may keep you awake if you take it at night. It is better to take it at the same time each day to maintain a consistent level of medicine in the blood. If you miss a dose of this medicine, take it as soon as you remember. Do not skip any doses and finish the full course of treatment even if you feel better. It is important not to stop taking this medicine suddenly as it may worsen your symptoms.

This medicine may cause side effects like vomiting, low sexual desire, erectile dysfunction, dryness in mouth, constipation, joint pain, insomnia (difficulty sleeping) and stomach upset. Initially, this medicine may cause a sudden drop in the blood pressure when you change positions. So, it is better to rise slowly if you have been sitting or lying down.

Dr. Jyoti Kapoor Madan
Psychiatrist
You shouldn't plan pregnancy while you are on psychotropics, they can harm the foetus, especially during the first three months of conception. Pregnancy can also increase the risk to increasing depression. A reasonable solution is to get adequate treatment and go for psychotherapy, after you have recovered from depression, gradually withdraw medicines and continue therapy before planning conception. For further guidance, visit your psychiatrist.
