The medicines belonging to the benzodiazepine class of medicines have anti-analgesic as well as hypnotic properties. These are the key properties to treat several symptoms and mental health disorders. One such medicine that is widely used for this very purpose Normaxin RT tablet.
Manufactured and marketed by Systopic Laboratories Pvt Ltd, Normaxin RT medicine is available as an over the counter product at pharmacist shops all across the globe. Normaxin RT is a combination of four medicines that each have separate functionalities, which makes Normaxin RT a versatile medicine that provides multiple benefits. However, since Normaxin RT has such an extensive list of ingredients, it increases the chances of an allergic reaction among patients. An allergy can be induced when the patient is allergic to even one component of the Normaxin RT medicine, that can induce severely problematic side-effects in the patient.
There are four distinct medicinal compounds present in each Normaxin RT tablet, which are as follows:
Chlordiazepoxide is a sedative and a hypnotic drug that is primarily prescribed for the treatment of acute anxiety disorders, as well as alcohol withdrawal symptoms. Other less common uses of the chemical compound include administration to the patient to reduce anxiety before undergoing surgery. The main function of chlordiazepoxide is to act on the central nervous system and produce a calming sensation in the body.
Clidinium is another component of Normaxin RT, which is an anticholinergic drug. It is generally used to relieve the symptoms of cramping and abdominal pain. Clidinium helps in relieving stomach pain by decreasing the number of acids present in the stomach, as well as by the slowing down the work rate of the intestines.
Dicyclomine is primarily used in the treatment of irritable bowel syndrome. It does so by treating muscle spasms in the digestive tract through muscle relaxation. The muscles to be relaxed are chosen at random to achieve quick and efficient relief.
Rabeprazole inhibits the production of gastric acid in the stomach of the patient. This helps to treat medical conditions caused to excessive gastric acid production in the body.
Normaxin RT medication is prescribed to patients for the prevention and treatment of the following medical conditions:
Due to its hypnotic properties, Normaxin RT is often prescribed to patients suffering from anxiety-related disorders to produce a calming effect. It can also serve as a mild anaesthetic agent in some scenarios.
Apart from the intended effect, medicines may sometimes induce unwanted side effects due to drug interactions and/or allergies. Some of the possible side effects a patient may experience while taking Normaxin RT regularly include but are not limited to the following:
The patient may also experience other side effects in case they happen to be allergic to one or more components of the Normaxin RT. Should such a situation arise, the patient must immediately seek medical advice from a doctor that is well aware of their medical history and get appropriate readjustment or replacement of the medicine.
The suggested dose for Normaxin RT tablet is dependent on the medical condition of the patient as well as the severity of the same. It is advised that the medicine is swallowed whole by the patient, without chewing, crushing or breaking it.
Normaxin RT must always be taken on an empty stomach and should be taken at the same time each day to achieve best results.
Since Normaxin RT is a combination of four different medicines, its effectiveness is dependent on the separate mechanisms of the said medicines. Chlordiazepoxide promotes the action of a chemical messenger that suppresses all abnormal nerve cell activity. Dicyclomine and clidinium work to relax the muscle in the digestive tract through muscle relaxation. They also inhibit muscle contractions.
Rabeprazole inhibits the pumping of protons and production of gastric acid in the stomach, thereby relieving all symptoms of gastric acid related medical complications.
It is tough to find appropriate substitutes for Normaxin RT due to its heterogeneous composition. Coliwin R capsule manufactured by Mankind Pharma Ltd is one suitable alternative that can provide the combined benefits of Normaxin RT. Other than that, separate medication can be taken to treat specific medical conditions.
