INTRODUCTION

TIAPREX contains Tiapride which belongs to the group of medicines called Antipsychotic Agents. TIAPREX is used to improve aggressive behavior/mental excitement/wandering/delirium associated with aftereffects of cerebral infarction, which is a condition that occurs due to interrupted/reduced blood supply to the brain in affected individuals.

TIAPREX is also used to treat idiopathic dyskinesia (uncontrolled involuntary movement)/dyskinesia associated with Parkinson’s disease, which occurs as a progressive disorder that affects nervous system and parts of the body controlled by nerves (associated with symptoms such as tremor, slowed movement, speech changes) in affected individuals.

TIAPREX is not recommended for use in patients allergic to Tiapride. It is also not recommended for use in patients with severe renal impairment.

Before taking TIAPREX, inform your doctor if you suffer from prolactinoma (noncancerous tumor of pituitary gland), and/or have liver problems (such as liver cirrhosis)/kidney problems (such as mild to moderate renal impairment).

TIAPREX should be used with caution during pregnancy and in breastfeeding women only if it is clearly necessary.

The medicine is also advised to be used with caution in children and adolescents (aged 10 to 18 years) only if necessary and is advised to be used with caution in elderly patients (aged 65 years and above) after consulting the doctor.  

The most common side effects of taking TIAPREX are Parkinson's syndrome (associated with symptoms such as shivering of limbs, drooling, gait disturbance), drowsiness, dizziness/light headedness, dry mouth, rash, and/or itch. Consult your doctor if any of these symptoms worsens.

  • Treats idiopathic dyskinesia (uncontrolled involuntary movement)/dyskinesia associated with Parkinson’s disease (progressive disorder that affects nervous system and parts of the body controlled by nerves)

HOW TIAPREX WORKS

TIAPREX works by improving symptoms (excitation/aggression) associated with aftereffects of cerebral infarction and idiopathic dyskinesia by blocking receptors of dopamine (neurotransmitter responsible for pleasure, motivation, and learning) in brain thus treating the conditions in affected individuals.
