Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

^

Q: Is Oresta Tab habit-forming?

A: Yes, Oresta Tab is habit-forming if taken on a long term basis. Higher dose and duration is linked with a high risk of dependence. Also, people addicted to other substances like alcohol or nicotine or other forms of medicines have a higher risk of developing a habit. Hence, this medicine is usually given for a short while.

Q: For how long does Oresta Tab stay in the body?

A: Oresta Tab has a fast action. It quickly absorbs into the blood within minutes and reaches its maximum levels within 30 minutes. It stays at that level for up to 4 hours, and later levels drop. Therefore, usually, one or two daily doses are prescribed.

Q: What will happen if I stop taking Oresta Tab?

A: If you're taking Oresta Tab for the past few weeks and stop it altogether, it will lead to withdrawal symptoms. These may include thoughts of self-harm or self-killing, loss of sleep, restlessness, confusion, etc. Don't stop it until your doctor tells you to do so.
