About Ginkocetin Tablet 10's

Ginkocetin Tablet 10's belongs to the group of medicines called 'nootropics', primarily used to boost brain performance or wakefulness, enhance mood, and improve cognitive ability in persons dealing with neurodegenerative diseases like dementia of Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson's disease. Neurodegenerative diseases mean the death of neurons that can affect a person's speech, memory, intelligence, movement, and much more.  Our brain is made of billions of neurons (cells in the brain) that communicate with each other to perform daily activities of the day. These neurons are closely connected, and even a small miscommunication in one area can affect brain activities resulting in neurodegenerative diseases. In Alzheimer's disease, the brain cells degenerate and die, which causes a gradual decline in behavioural and social skills and thinking ability (dementia), which affects a person's ability to function independently. Parkinson’s disease is a central nervous system disorder affecting movement and locomotion. It causes stiffness, shaking, difficulty walking, coordination, and balance.

Ginkocetin Tablet 10's contains Ginkgo biloba,  Piracetam, and Vinpocetine. Ginkgo biloba improves blood flow to the brain and acts as an antioxidant (natural substituent that slows down cell damage). Piracetam falls in the category of drugs called acetylcholinesterase inhibitors. This drug increases the levels of a substance (acetylcholine) in the brain, which is involved in improving memory functioning by slowing down the breakdown of acetylcholine (a substance that allows nerves to communicate and is important for normal brain functioning). Vinpocetine works like a neuroprotective agent that minimizes damage to the brain. It also prevents the risk of blood clotting in the brain, which makes brain cells (neurons) die. All three drugs, in combination, improve a person's mood, memory, and thinking ability.

Take Ginkocetin Tablet 10's as prescribed by your doctor. You should take Ginkocetin Tablet 10's as long as your doctor has prescribed it after checking your medical condition. The most common side effects of Ginkocetin Tablet 10's include flushing (sense of warmth in ears, neck, face, and trunk), weight gain, upset stomach, rash, nervousness, and abnormality of voluntary movements.  This happens because the body is adjusting to the new medicine. If a person notices severe side effects of medicine or if side effects do not go within a couple of days, then they need to consult with the doctor immediately.

Do not take Ginkocetin Tablet 10's if you are allergic to any of its components. If you have a heart rhythm disorder, a stomach ulcer, urination problems, asthma or other breathing disorder, seizure, or liver or kidney disease, inform your doctor before taking this medicine.
