More facts about Generic Periactin (Cyproheptadine 4 mg):

What is the preparation marketed as Generic Periactin?

If you have ever used the medication marketed as Periactin for allergy symptoms elimination and tolerated the pills well, you can safely buy Generic Periactin to save your money.

Periactin is a term used for all medicines with the exactly the same composition and effect as the branded medicine. Such medications are just produced by other companies. Such companies must invent new names to register their medicines under because they cannot use the name Periactin as it would violate the copyrights of the brand owner. The collective term generic plus the brand name cannot be registered either but it is allowed to be used unofficially. For instance, if your doctor prescribes you the branded medicine, you can ask for the generic medication instead at an online pharmacy and the pharmacists will understand what you want.

Internationally, generics of the medication mostly known in the U.S. as Periactin are known as Generic Cyproheptadine. It is the name of the main ingredient of both the branded medicine and its generics. Some medications are even marketed under this name without additional trade name. Others are marketed under other names but they necessarily have the name Cyproheptadine under the trade name on the box of pills which is a good way of checking whether you are offered the correct medication or not.

Why is it better to buy generic instead of the branded medicine?

First of all, as we have already mentioned, generics are identical to the branded medicines. But they have one significant advantage – they cost cheaper. The lower price doesn’t indicate the lower quality or ineffectiveness of the medication but rather the fact that the manufacturer has found the ways to save on the production and doesn’t invest in advertising. Moreover, large brand’s owners commonly overprice their medications. Obviously, no one would purchase the branded medicines for such high prices unless their doctors would insist that the branded medicines are better. But do you know why they tell you so? The thing is, and it’s not a secret, that large pharmaceutical companies pay doctors every time they prescribe their medicines instead of the preparations made by their competitors. And the indecent physicians do not lose this opportunity to raise their paychecks. Therefore, if you need an anti-allergic medicine, you can buy Periactin in a generic form and use it with a peace of mind knowing that you get absolutely the same treatment and do not overpay for the advertised and promoted brand name.

When can you purchase the medication?

Cyproheptadine by Cipla is used in allergic conditions such as acute and chronic urticaria, serum sickness, pollinosis (hay fever caused by pollen), allergic rhinitis, dermatitis, neurodermatitis, Quincke’s edema, allergy caused by medications use, and so on.

Besides, the medication can be appointed for the therapy of migraines, in appetite loss (including in anorexia). Additionally, as histamine and serotonin enhance the secretion of pancreatic juice, the medication can be used as a part of complex therapy of pancreatitis.

If you have any of these conditions and have a good experience using the medication, you can buy Cyproheptadine and start using it without prior visiting your physician as we offer you to get the medication sans a prescription. But if you suspect a condition that is treated with the preparation but are not certain, you need to get a proper consultation and examination first.

How the medication provides its effect?

The medication renders an antihistamine activity, i.e. blocks the H1 histamine receptors responsible for the development of an allergic reaction. Besides, it is a strong anti-serotonin substance. It makes the medicine effective in reduction of other effects caused by serotonin.

The medication is especially effective in itching dermatoses (skin diseases) possibly due to anti-serotonin action.

Additional effects of Cyproheptadine include the suppression of the excessive growth hormone secretion in acromegaly and Cushing syndrome.

The medication is quickly absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract and achieves the peak concentration in the body within 2 hours after the intake.

Who must not use the pills?

In this section we list the contraindications for the medication use taken from the official instruction. However, even if you don’t suffer from these conditions, your physician may still believe that the drug is unsafe for you. Therefore, before you buy Generic Cyproheptadine, you need to consult your doctor.

The medication must not be used in hypersensitivity to the medicine’s components, glaucoma, benign prostatic hyperplasia, difficulty urination, pyloroduodenal obstruction, peptic ulcer, predisposition to edema (swelling). The medicine also is highly not recommended for elderly patients, pregnant and breastfeeding women and for children below 6 months of age.

The medication’s safety is not fully studied in patients with liver dysfunction but considering that the drug is mainly metabolized in the liver, it is advised to use it cautiously and avoid using the pills if you suffer from severe liver impairment.

How to use the medication?

The best way to find out how to use the pills safely in your case is to consult a physician. However, if you don’t have this possibility, you can order Periactin and follow the instruction if you don’t suffer from any conditions in which the medicine is contraindicated.

The therapy of adults is performed with 4 mg pill taken three-four times a day.

The dosage for the therapy of children is calculated based on their age and weight. Children from 6 months to 2 years of age are prescribed to be administered 0.4 micrograms per kilogram of the body weight. Children from 2 to 6 years are administered up to 6 mg a day or a half of a pill taken 3 times a day. Children from 6 to 14 years can take up to 12 mg a day or 1 pill taken three times a day.

The daily dosage for adults must not exceed 32 mg, for children from 6 to 14 years - 12 mg, for children from 2 to 6 years - 8 mg.

Overdose detection and treatment

The overdose of the medication is very dangerous. Therefore, if you have trouble remembering whether you took the pill or not you should set an alarm and take the pills at the same time every day.

The overdose in children leads to mydriasis (dilation) and paralysis of the pupil, reddening of the face, hyperthermia, agitation, anxiety, hallucinations, ataxia, athetosis, convulsions, collapse, and even coma. In adults, an overdose can cause general inhibition, depression, coma, or psychomotor agitation, convulsions and rarely - hyperthermia and hyperemia of the skin.

The urgent measures are vomiting induction and intake of activated carbon. At the same time you should seek emergency help as a gastric lavage and other procedures performed at the hospital are required to avoid serious damage to the health and death.

Adverse effects that can occur in regular dosages

The negative effects of the medication can be sleepiness, dryness in the mouth, anxiety, coordination violation, dizziness, nausea, and skin rash.

Considering that these effects can affect ability to focus, you need to avoid driving vehicles at least during the first day of the therapy and resume driving only if you don’t suffer from these side effects. If you start having any adverse reactions, you should inform your physician right away.

Where to buy Periactin?
