HOW TO USE APTIMUST SYRUP
HOW APTIMUST SYRUP WORKS
Aptimust is a combination of three medicines: Cyproheptadine, tricholine citrate and sorbitol, which revives appetite. Cyproheptadine is an appetite-stimulant.
It works by reducing the effect of a chemical messenger (serotonin) in the hypothalamus, a part of the brain which regulates appetite.
Tricholine citrate is a bile acid binding agent which removes bile acids from the body.
The liver then produces more bile acids using cholesterol, as a result of which cholesterol level is lowered. Sorbitol acts as a syrup base and also as an osmotic laxative to relieve constipation.
Aptimust may cause dizziness, sedation, and hypotension in elderly patients. This may affect your ability to drive.
