About Motilium M Tablet 10's

Motilium M Tablet 10's belongs to a class of medications known as 'dopamine antagonist' used to treat nausea (feeling sick) and vomiting (being sick) in adults and adolescent 12 years or older. Besides this, it also helps in the treatment of indigestion. Nausea and vomiting are not diseases but are symptoms of many conditions like infections, motion sickness, an early stage of pregnancy, and gastroparesis (slow stomach emptying).

Motilium M Tablet 10's prevents nausea and vomiting symptoms by blocking certain receptors (like dopamine and serotonin) that stimulate the vomiting centre (chemoreceptor trigger zone – CTZ) located in the brain. It also acts as a prokinetic agent that increases the upper gastrointestinal tract's motility and helps in decreasing the stomach emptying time.

It is better to take Motilium M Tablet 10's before meals, as when taken after meals, the absorption of the medicine is slightly delayed. Symptoms of nausea and vomiting may usually resolve with 3-4 days after taking Motilium M Tablet 10's. However, if it does not resolve even after this, stop taking this medicine and contact doctor.
