Description of Dixarit
The generic name of Dixarit is clonidine hydrochloride. It belongs to a family of medicines known as vasodilators or antihypertensives. Dixarit is available in the form of an oral tablet. It is available in a single strength – 25 mg. As it is a prescription drug, it is best to speak to your doctor before you buy Dixarit online.
Indications & Dosage of Dixarit
Dixarit is used in the prevention of migraines and hot flushes in menopausal women. The drug works by widening the blood vessels in the brain, thereby increasing blood flow to the skin and lowering the blood pressure. The medication helps in reducing migraine attack pain.
Your doctor will give specific instructions regarding the dosage of Dixarit. It is recommended to be used for a minimum of two to four weeks before any noticeable improvement is witnessed in the treatment of migraine attacks and menopausal flushing. The daily dose will vary depending on how best it can prevent migraines and hot flushes.
You can take Dixarit with or without food. The use of the drug should not be stopped without consulting your doctor as this may cause symptoms such as nervousness, restlessness, palpitations, tremor, headache and abdominal symptoms to surface again.
