Palicalm 3mg Tablet ER


Overview

Introduction

Palicalm 3mg Tablet ER is a prescription medicine used in the treatment of schizophrenia and mania. It works by modulating the action of certain chemical messengers in the brain that affect thoughts.

Palicalm 3mg Tablet ER is taken by mouth with or without food. However, it is advisable to take it at the same time each day as this helps to maintain consistent level of medicine in the body. Take this in the dose and duration as advised by your doctor and if you have missed a dose, take it as soon as you remember. It is important that this medication is not stopped suddenly without talking to doctor as it may worsen your symptoms. However, discontinue this medicine immediately if you experience Neuroleptic malignant syndrome (NMS), characterized by fever, muscle rigidity, and altered consciousness.

It also causes dizziness and sleepiness, so do not drive or do anything that requires mental focus until you know how this medicine affects you.
