About Soltus-100 Tablet

Soltus-100 Tablet belongs to a group of medicines called 'antipsychotics' primarily used to treat long term (chronic) schizophrenia and postoperative nausea/vomiting. Schizophrenia is characterized by hallucinations symptoms (seeing or hearing things that are not real) and delusions (wrong beliefs). In schizophrenic disorders, there are positive symptoms (like delusions, hallucinations and thought disorders) along with negative symptoms (like blunted effect, emotional and social withdrawal). Nausea is an uneasy feeling in which the person feels an urge to vomit, whereas vomiting is an uncontrollable reflex that expels the stomach's contents through the mouth.

Soltus-100 Tablet contains Amisulpride, which helps restore the balance of certain natural substances in the brain. The key action of Soltus-100 Tablet is to block some of the dopamine receptors in the brain and correct dopamine's overactivity. On the other hand, it also affects other brain neurotransmitters such as serotonin (5-HT), which may also lead to its beneficial effects. Soltus-100 Tablet also stops the sensation of vomiting/nausea by blocking the D2 receptors located in the chemoreceptor trigger zone - CTZ of the brain responsible for inducing vomiting.

Diet & Lifestyle Advise

Mental illness:

  • Monitor your mood. Keep track of your mood regularly, including factors such as sleep, medicine and activities that can impact your mood. 

  • Exercise daily. Exercise is nice to relieve tension. It can also avoid the weight gain that can be a side effect of your bipolar medication.

  • You may also practice calming techniques such as meditation and deep breathing exercises.

  • Get some normal sleep. Having enough sleep will help to stabilize your mood.

  • Eat a healthy diet. Certain foods may affect your mood more than others. Consider keeping a food log to track what you eat and how certain foods make you feel. Talk to your doctor or nutritionist about foods that may help stabilize your mood.

  • Stay optimistic. It will take time for your symptoms to improve after you start bipolar therapy, but you will feel relaxed knowing that you will get better and that the worst is most definitely behind you.

  • Drink fluids to stay hydrated. Use oral rehydration solutions (ORS) to replace lost electrolytes.
