Gressami 100 MG Description

Gressami tablets are prescription medications. They're used to manage schizophrenia. It is a psychotic disorder that changes one’s way of thinking, emotionally reacting and behaving in typical situat

ions. It has positive symptoms such as confusion and hallucination and negative symptoms like lack of facial expression and decreased speaking. Helping with all of them, especially negative symptoms, is the primary use of the Gressami tablet. Amisulpride is the main active ingredient of the Gressami tablet. The mode of action of the Gressami tablet is to block receptors and increase dopamine and serotonin levels in the brain. Both chemical messengers help calm the mood and stabilise the overactivity of the nerve cells in the brain. These tablets are not meant for treating children under the age of 18. Tremors, dizziness, vomiting, etc., are some of the side effects of Gressami tablets. It is vital to inform the treating doctor of any prescribed medicines being taken so they can check for any potential interactions and adverse effects.
