Uses of Verserc in details
There are specific as well as general uses of a drug or medicine. A medicine can be used to prevent a disease, treat a disease over a period or cure a disease. It can also be used to treat the particular symptom of the disease. The drug use depends on the form the patient takes it. It may be more useful in injection form or sometimes in tablet form. The drug can be used for a single troubling symptom or a life-threatening condition. While some medications can be stopped after few days, some drugs need to be continued for prolonged period to get the benefit from it.
Verserc is used to treat Meniere's disease, condition which typically causes vertigo (sensation of spinning or rotation),tinnitus (ringing in ears), hearing loss and nausea (urge to vomit).
Each tablet contains Betahistine dihydrochloride 8 mg.
It also contains the following excipients: β-cyclodextrin, maize starch, microcrystalline cellulose, anhydrous colloidal silica, calcium hydrogen phosphate, povidone, sodium lauryl sulphate, magnesium stearate, purified talc, sodium starch glycolate and purified water.
Recommended Dose and Mode of Action: Adults: 16-mg Tab:24-48 mg divided over the day.
24-mg Tab: 48 mg divided over the day.
The dosage should be individually adapted according to the response. Improvement can sometimes only be observed after a couple of weeks of treatment. The best results are sometimes obtained after a few months. There are indications that treatment from the onset of the disease prevents the progression of the disease and/or the loss of hearing in later phases of the disease.
Pediatric: Verserc is not recommended for use in children below18 years due to insufficient data on safety and efficacy.
Geriatric: Although there are limited data from clinical studies in this patient group, extensive post-marketing experience suggests that no dose adjustment is necessary in this patient population.
Renal and/or Hepatic Impairment: There are no specific clinical trials available in this patient groups, but according to the post-marketing experience, no dose adjustment appears to be necessary.
Administration: Should be swallowed with water.
No in vivo interaction studies have been performed. Based on in vitro data, no in vivo inhibition on cytochrome P-450 enzymes is expected.
In vitro data indicate an inhibition of Verserc metabolism by drugs that inhibit monoamine oxidase (MAO), including MAO subtype B (eg, selegiline). Caution is recommended when using Verserc and MAO inhibitors (including MAO-B selective) concomitantly.
As Verserc is an analogue of histamine, interaction of Verserc with antihistamines may in theory affect the efficacy of one of these drugs.
Incompatibilities: Not applicable.
