About LURASID 40MG TABLET 10'S

LURASID 40MG TABLET 10'S belongs to a group of medications called ‘antipsychotics’.

Schizophrenia is a mental condition in which the person may feel, hear or see things that are not there, believe things that are not true, feel unusually suspicious or confused. Bipolar disorder is characterized by manic episodes in which a person experiences extreme mood swings (variance in thinking) and frequent mood and behaviours changes.
