About Betaflu Tablet

Betaflu Tablet is used to treat migraine. Migraine is a medical condition that involves severe throbbing pain or a pulsing sensation on one side of the head. Severe and recurrent headaches are one of the characteristic symptoms of migraine. Its symptoms include nausea, vomiting, difficulty speaking, numbness or tingling, and sensitivity to light and sound.

Betaflu Tablet consists of 'Propranolol' (beta-blocker) and 'Flunarizine' (calcium channel blocker). Propranolol has anxiolytic (anxiety-reducing), anti-arrhythmic (treats abnormal heart rhythms), and antihypertensive (reduces blood pressure) properties. Propranolol works by reducing cerebral (brain) blood flow by directly acting on the brain's blood vessels. It also inhibits the cortical spreading of depression and electrical activity in the brain that causes pain and inflammation. It effectively treats and reduces the severity and frequency of migraine headaches. Flunarizine belongs to the class of calcium channel blockers. It improves blood flow and dilates blood vessels in the brain, thereby preventing headaches caused by migraine. It is also used to treat vertigo (spinning sensation).

Your doctor will decide the dose and duration based on the severity of your pain. Common side effects of Betaflu Tablet include dry weight gain, slow heart rate, tiredness, depression, drowsiness, abnormal dreams, and cold extremities (hands and feet). These side effects are not familiar to everyone and vary individually. If you notice any side effects that are not manageable, please consult your doctor.

Let your doctor know if you use any prescription and non-prescription medications you are taking, including other vitamins, before starting Betaflu Tablet . Betaflu Tablet may cause weight gain in some cases, so avoid eating junk and eat a healthy, balanced diet, including home-cooked food. Consult your doctor before taking Betaflu Tablet if you are pregnant, planning for pregnancy or breastfeeding.
