INTRODUCTION

COPAR TABLET is a combination of Metoclopramide and Paracetamol which belong to the groups of medicines called Antiemetics and Analgesics respectively. It is used to manage pain, nausea and vomiting associated with migraine attacks.

Migraine is a neurological condition that is thought to be caused by the widening of certain blood vessels in the brain, causing an intense, throbbing, recurrent headache on one side of the head, usually around the temple region, but sometimes it can start in the forehead, around the eye or at the back of the head. There are many symptoms that may accompany migraines; nausea (feeling sick) is one of the most common.

Avoid consuming alcohol while taking COPAR TABLET because it might make you feel dizzy or sleepy. COPAR TABLET is not recommended for use in patients with stomach and/or digestive tract bleeding, intestinal blockage, recent stomach and/or intestine surgery, phaeochromocytoma (a rare tumour of the adrenal gland) or epilepsy.

COPAR TABLET should only be used in pregnant women if necessary and should be avoided in breastfeeding women. Before using COPAR TABLET, inform your doctor if you have any history of liver or kidney problems, glutathione deficiency, hemolytic anaemia, dehydration, malnutrition for a long period, breast cancer or Parkinson's disease.

COPAR TABLET is generally not recommended for use in children under the age of one year.COPAR TABLET should also be used cautiously with elderly patients. The most common side effects of COPAR TABLET are headache, dizziness, indigestion, drowsiness, tiredness, restlessness and diarrhoea. If any of these symptoms worsen, consult your doctor.

USES OF COPAR TABLET

  • Treats pain, nausea and vomiting associated with migraine attack

HOW COPAR TABLET WORKS

COPAR TABLET provides relief from migraine attacks where Metoclopramide blocks the action of a chemical substance produced in the brain that initiates vomiting along with increasing muscle contractions in the stomach and intestine and Paracetamol works by stopping the release of certain chemical messengers that cause pain and fever. This collective action is therefore useful in treating nausea,  vomiting and headaches associated with migraine effectively.
