Description of Nitoman
The generic name of Nitoman is Tetrabenazine. It belongs to a family of medications known as Monoamine depleting agents. Nitoman is available in the form of an oral tablet. It is a prescription medication, which means you need to consult your doctor before you buy Nitoman online.
Indications & Dosage of Nitoman
Nitoman is indicated in the treatment of irregular or jerky movements caused by a variety of medical conditions such as senile chorea, Huntington’s chorea, and hemiballismus. The drug works by lowering the levels of monoamines in the brain. High levels of monoamines in the brain are considered to be one of the causes of specific involuntary movement disorders. The drug mainly affects norepinephrine, serotonin, and dopamine levels.
Your doctor will give you specific instructions regarding the dosage. The dosage of Nitoman depends on several factors such as the patient’s weight, other medical conditions the patient is suffering from, and other medicines he/she is using.
The usual recommended dose of Nitoman is 12.5mg, 2-3 times daily. Your doctor may recommend a different dose. The dosage is gradually increased over a period of days. The increase in dosage depends on the side effects experienced by the patient and how well the symptoms are controlled by the lower dose.
