Arpizol 5mg Tablet
Arpizol 5 MG Description
Arpizol Tablet is an antipsychotic and mood stabiliser primarily used to treat mood disorders such as schizophrenia, autism-related irritability, and Tourette's syndrome. In addition, Arpizol Tablet,
in combination with other antidepressant medications, aids in treating mental depression. Schizophrenia impairs a person's capacity to feel, think, and act rationally. Tourette's syndrome is a neurological condition marked by involuntary, repeated motions or sounds (tics). Psychosis may be triggered by changes in the action of chemical messengers in the brain known as neurotransmitters (such as dopamine and serotonin). Arpizol Tablet contains Aripiprazole, which stabilises and blocks dopamine and serotonin receptors in the brain, preventing overactivity and reducing positive symptoms of schizophrenia such as hallucinations, misbelief, and unfriendly features. Arpizol Tablet boosts dopamine and serotonin receptor activation in various brain parts. It aids in the management of negative symptoms of schizophrenia, such as a lack of emotion, social isolation, poor focus, and memory loss. As a result, Arpizol Tablet helps to alleviate mood swings, sadness, and other psychotic issues. Take an Arpizol tablet whole with a glass of water, with or without food. It shouldn’t be crushed, chewed, or broken. Your doctor will tell you how often you should take an Arpizol Tablet based on your medical situation. Drowsiness, headaches, fatigue, akathisia (inability to sit still), problems sleeping, light-headedness, indigestion, shaking, blurred vision, nausea, vomiting, anxiety, and increased saliva production are all possible side effects.
