INTRODUCTION

PERINORM SYRUP contains Metoclopramide which belongs to the group of medicines called Anti-emetics. It is used to prevent delayed nausea and vomiting in children (aged 1 to 18 years, when other medicines do not work or cannot be used to prevent it) and adults that may occur after chemotherapy. PERINORM SYRUP is also used in adults to prevent nausea and vomiting caused by radiotherapy and treats nausea and vomiting which may occur with a migraine.

Migraine is a headache which causes severe throbbing pain or pulsing sensation, particularly on one side of the head and it is characterized by symptoms such as nausea, vomiting and sensitivity to light. PERINORM SYRUP can also be taken with oral painkillers in case of migraine to make painkillers work more effectively.

Your doctor may perform blood tests during the treatment to monitor your blood pigment (haemoglobin) levels. Your doctor may immediately or permanently stop your treatment if there are any abnormalities in the levels of blood pigment.  

PERINORM SYRUP is not recommended for use in patients with epilepsy, parkinson’s disease, bleeding, obstruction or tear in the stomach or gut, tumour of adrenal gland (pheochromocytoma) and involuntary muscle spasms (due to other medicines).   

PERINORM SYRUP should be used with caution in pregnant women only if clearly advised by the doctor and it is not recommended for use in breastfeeding women as it may pass through the breast milk.   

PERINORM SYRUP is not recommended for use in children (below 1 year of age) and should be used with caution in children and adolescents (aged 1 to 18 years). PERINORM SYRUP should be used with caution in elderly patients. Consult your doctor before taking it.

The most common side effects of taking PERINORM SYRUP are drowsiness, restlessness, feeling weak, uncontrollable body movements (such as muscle stiffness or rigidity) and diarrhoea. Consult your physician immediately if any of the side effects worsen.

HOW PERINORM SYRUP WORKS
