Frequently asked questions about Dope Products

Frequently asked questions about Donepezil

Q. Why is Dope taken at night?
Dope is recommended to be taken before going to bed to reduce gastrointestinal side effects or nausea, which is commonly seen in some patients in the first few weeks of treatment.
Q. Do the gastrointestinal side effects due to Dope persist for a long time?
Gastrointestinal side effects may appear during the first few weeks of treatment with Dope. This can be minimized by taking Dope at bedtime and with food. Generally, these side effects are mild and disappear within a few weeks with continued treatment.
Q. How long does it take for Dope to start working?
Within the first month of treatment with Dope, you may experience improvement in thinking and remembering (cognitive effect). However, it may take about 12 weeks to see the full benefits.
Q. When should Dope be stopped?
Do not stop Dope without consulting your doctor. This medicine only helps to control your condition but does not cure it. Therefore, it may take several weeks to show benefits, so do not be discouraged if you do not see an improvement straight away. But, in case your condition starts worsening and you feel that it is no longer helping you, then you should consult a doctor before stopping it.
Q. For how long does Dope stay in your system?
Dope gets removed from the body very slowly. It takes about two weeks or more for Dope to be completely removed from the system.
Q. Does Dope cause depression?
No, Dope does not cause depression. If you are experiencing symptoms, then it could be due to existing Alzheimer’s disease.
Q. What if I take more than the prescribed dose of Dope?
Taking more than the recommended dose of Dope may cause vomiting, increased sweating or saliva production, slow heartbeat, dizziness, difficulty in breathing, seizures or fits, weakness, and inability to control your bowel motions or passing of urine (incontinence). You should seek immediate help from a doctor or emergency service of a nearby hospital.
Q. I have been taking indomethacin for arthritis. Can I take Dope?
Dope does not interfere with the working of indomethacin, but indomethacin individually increases the risk of stomach bleeding when taken for a long time. Therefore, if you experience any symptoms of stomach bleeding, consult your doctor immediately.
Q. Does Dope cause hallucinations?
Hallucinations are a common side effect of Dope, though not everyone is affected. Other common psychiatric side effects include agitation, aggressive behavior, nightmares, and abnormal dreams.
Q. Who should not take Dope?
Dope should not be taken by patients who have hypersensitivity to Dope hydrochloride, piperidine derivatives, or to any active ingredients used in the medicine. Also, it should not be used during pregnancy unless clearly necessary.
Q. Can it cause insomnia?
Yes, insomnia (sleeplessness) is a common side effect of Dope. Dizziness and fainting can also be seen as common side effects. Though these side effects are common, they do not occur in everyone.
