INTRODUCTION

MAXERON 5MG contains Metoclopramide which belongs to a group of medicines called anti-emetics.

This medicine can be taken with oral painkillers in case of migraine to help painkillers work more effectively. Take the medicine according to the dose and duration as advised by your doctor.

Metoclopramide acts by opposing the effect of dopamine in the central nervous system and other organ systems. This action helps to reduce nausea and vomiting.
