Flutop 20 MG Description

Flutop 20mg Cap is an antidepressant medication used to treat major depression, characterised by a persistent sense of melancholy, dissatisfaction, anger, or hopelessness that interferes with daily l

ife. Treatment of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), bulimia nervosa (eating disorder), and panic disorder are among the other uses of Flutop 20mg Cap. The active ingredient in Flutop 20mg is Fluoxetine, a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI). Fluoxetine causes an increase in serotonin concentrations in the neuron synapse, which aids in mood regulation and depression treatment. It works by preventing nerves from reabsorbing serotonin, a mood-enhancing chemical messenger that communicates between brain cells. Flutop 20mg Cap should be taken as directed by the psychiatrist. It should be continued for as long as the doctor has prescribed it. A few typical side effects of Flutop 20mg include insomnia (difficulty sleeping), headache, diarrhoea, nausea, weariness, dry mouth, loss of appetite, and indigestion. The majority of these side effects do not require medical attention and will go away over time. However, it is best to consult the doctor in case of persistent adverse effects. Sudden stoppage of Flutop 20mg Cap can cause withdrawal symptoms. Pregnant and lactating women should inform the doctor of their status; this medicine is not recommended at this time. Flutop 20mg capsules should not be administered to children under eight.
