INTRODUCTION

HEPATREAT contains l-ornithine-l-aspartate which belongs to the group of medicines called hepatoprotective agent. It is used in the treatment of concomitant diseases and complications caused by deterioration of liver detoxification function, with symptoms of latent or severe hepatic encephalopathy and consciousness disorders such as precoma or coma.

L-ornithine-l-aspartate is made up of two amino acids called ornithine and aspartic acid. Both l-ornithine and l-aspartic acid, ensures hepatoprotective effect by decreasing the toxic load on liver, and by providing metabolic support for hepatic cells. Before taking this medicine, inform your doctor if you have severe liver disease, because your doctor might adjust the dose on an individual basis to avoid nausea and vomiting.

This medicine is well tolerated with minimal side effects. However, if you experience any unusual symptoms after taking this medicine, inform your doctor. Do not take this medicine if you have severe renal impairment, diabetes or fructose intolerance. Ask your doctor for advice. If high dose of this medicine is used, it is important to monitor the levels of urea both in the serum and urine to avoid toxicity. Ask your doctor for advice before taking this medicine, if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.

USES OF HEPATREAT

  • Restores normal liver function
  • Treats concomitant diseases caused by deterioration of liver function
  • Treats symptoms of latent or severe hepatic encephalopathy

HOW HEPATREAT WORKS

L-ornithine converts the toxic ammonia into non-toxic urea which is eliminated via kidneys. By doing this, it lowers the elevated level of toxic load (ammonia) in blood and helps the diseased liver to carry out its normal function smoothly (detoxification). L-Aspartate is an important component of citric acid cycle which liberates energy in the form of ATP, which helps in regeneration of damaged liver cells.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE

Dissolve the contents of 1-2 sachets in a large amount of fluid (e.g. in a glass of water or juice) and consume orally, 3 times a day during or after meals. Your doctor will decide the correct dose for you depending upon your condition. Continue to take this medicine, as long as your doctor tells you to do so, to obtain better results.
