Oleanz Forte Tablet Description

Oleanz Forte tablet is used to treat major depressive disorders that are resistant to other medications. It has two active ingredients: fluoxetine and olanzapine. Olanzapine belongs to a class of ant

ipsychotic medications. It works by balancing the brain's chemical substances that slow down the overworked nervous system. Fluoxetine stabilises mood and improves behaviour. Depression is a mood disorder that affects the normal functioning of a person. It can cause sad thoughts and loss of interest in life. The proper dosage of Oleanz Forte tablets helps in relieving these symptoms. Take this medication in the exact dose prescribed by the doctor as it can cause various adverse effects like drowsiness, fatigue, etc. Do not stop taking Oleanz Forte tablets suddenly, as it can cause withdrawal symptoms like cramps, sweating, vomiting, and tremors. Its dose should be slowly reduced. It depends on the individual and varies from person to person. It is not a habit-forming substance, but some people can abuse it. Notify your doctor if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
