PROPRANOLOL+FLUNARIZINE belongs to the class of 'anti-migraine drugs' primarily used to treat migraine. Migraine is a medical condition that involves severe throbbing pain or a pulsing sensation on one side of the head. Severe and recurrent headaches are one of the characteristic symptoms of migraine. Its symptoms include nausea, vomiting, difficulty speaking, numbness or tingling, and sensitivity to light and sound.
PROPRANOLOL+FLUNARIZINE consists of 'Propranolol' (beta-blocker) and 'Flunarizine' (calcium channel blocker). Propranolol has anxiolytic (anxiety-reducing), anti-arrhythmic (treats abnormal heart rhythms), and antihypertensive (reduces blood pressure) properties. Propranolol works by reducing cerebral (brain) blood flow by directly acting on the brain's blood vessels. It also inhibits cortical spreading depression, electrical activity in the brain that causes pain and inflammation. It effectively treats and reduces the severity and frequency of migraine headaches. Flunarizine belongs to the class of calcium channel blockers. It improves blood flow and dilates blood vessels in the brain, thereby preventing headaches caused due to migraine. It is also used to treat vertigo (spinning sensation).
Your doctor will decide the dose and duration based on the severity of your pain. Common side effects of PROPRANOLOL+FLUNARIZINE include dry weight gain, slow heart rate, tiredness, depression, drowsiness, abnormal dreams, and cold extremities (hands and feet). These side effects are not familiar to everyone and vary individually. If you notice any side effects that are not manageable, please consult your doctor.
