About SOLOPOSE BETA 0.5MG TABLET

SOLOPOSE BETA 0.5MG TABLET comes into the category of medicines known as 'antidepressant', primarily used in the treatment of depression and other mental health conditions, which include anxiety, panic disorder, and obsessive-compulsive disorder. Depression is a mood disorder that affects day to day life of a person. A person may have symptoms such as feeling sad or feeling of loss and might have mood swings. Anxiety is defined as an emotion characterized by feelings of tension, worried thoughts, and symptoms like increased blood pressure. Anxiety disorder also includes panic disorder which is characterized by sudden feelings of terror. In Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), a person feels the need to think or perform things repeatedly.

SOLOPOSE BETA 0.5MG TABLET compromises of two medicines, namely: Escitalopram and Etizolam. Escitalopram comes into the category of medicines known as 'selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors, or SSRIs', and works by increasing the serotonin levels. Serotonin is a chemical messenger in the brain responsible for improving the mood and physical symptoms of depression. It is also responsible for relieving symptoms of anxiety, panic attacks, and obsessive-compulsive disorders.
