METOPAR 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.
