About VOMITIL TABLET

VOMITIL TABLET belongs to a class of antipsychotic medications called phenothiazines used to treat nausea and vomiting during a migraine, schizophrenia, mania, anxiety in the short term, and vertigo (dizziness) due to ear problems such as Meniere’s syndrome. 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). Schizophrenia is a mental disorder that affects a person's ability to feel, think and behave clearly. Mania is a mental condition that causes intense excitement, high energy, and delusions (misbeliefs). Anxiety is a mental health disorder associated with fear, worry, and excessive nervousness. 

VOMITIL TABLET contains Prochlorperazine which works by inhibiting a natural chemical in the brain (dopamine) that stimulates the vomiting center (chemoreceptor trigger zone – CTZ), thereby preventing nausea and vomiting. Besides this, VOMITIL TABLET also controls psychotic symptoms in Schizophrenia and has a calming effect on people suffering from anxiety or mania.
