Q. What is Vitcobin-P?

Vitcobin-P is a combination of two medicines: Pregabalin and Methylcobalamin. This medicine is useful in the treatment of nerve pain (neuropathic pain). It calms the damaged or overactive nerves by acting on the brain, thereby decreasing the pain sensation. It also helps in the regeneration of damaged nerves in the body.

Q. How to manage weight gain associated with the use of Vitcobin-P?

Vitcobin-P can make you feel hungry which might make you eat more, thereby increasing your chances of putting on weight. However, preventing weight gain is easier than losing the increased weight. Try to eat a healthy balanced diet without increasing your portion sizes (per-meal intake). Do not eat food items that contain a lot of calories, such as soft drinks, oily food, chips, cakes, biscuits, and sweets. If you feel hungry between meals, avoid eating junk food and eat fruits, vegetables and low-calorie foods. Regular exercise will help prevent weight gain. If you maintain good eating habits and exercise regularly, you might not gain any weight.

Sometimes, you might not even feel drowsy or have any other warning signs before you suddenly fall asleep. Avoid driving a car, operating machinery, working at heights or participating in potentially dangerous activities at the beginning of your treatment until you know how the medicine affects you.

Q. What if I forget to take Vitcobin-P?

If you forget to take the scheduled dose of Vitcobin-P and it is almost time for your next dose, skip the dose you missed and take your next dose at the scheduled time.
