About SZETALO PLUSMD TABLET

SZETALO PLUSMD TABLET belongs to a group of medications called ‘antianxiety medications’. It is used in the treatment of anxiety disorders. Anxiety is the feeling of fear and worries about what’s about to come, which can interfere with your daily activities.

SZETALO PLUSMD TABLET is a combination of two drugs: clonazepam and escitalopram. Clonazepam decreases activity in the brain producing a calming effect. Escitalopram increases the serotonin hormone levels that improve mood, behaviour and cognition in patients with anxiety.

Common side-effects of SZETALO PLUSMD TABLET are nausea (feeling sick), headache, dizziness, confusion, drowsiness, fatigue, sleeping problems, breathlessness, poor coordination of movements, stomach upset, decreased libido (low sexual desire) and memory problems. SZETALO PLUSMD TABLET may cause ‘suicidal thoughts’, especially in children and adolescents. Normally, these side-effects improve with discontinuation of treatment. However, do not abruptly stop taking the medication. Your doctor gradually reduces the dose before stopping the treatment. Abrupt stopping may lead to withdrawal symptoms such as flu-like symptoms, headache, dizziness, insomnia, restlessness and nausea. These symptoms usually appear during the first few days after stopping treatment and go away after a few days. If the symptoms persist or worsen, consult a doctor immediately.

Do not take SZETALO PLUSMD TABLET if you are allergic to escitalopram, clonazepam or any other contents. Do not take this medication if you have a history of seizures, liver problems, sleep disorders, lung problems and alcohol or drug abuse. Do not consume alcohol as it can increase the risk of side-effects. Inform your doctor if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
