Arrow-Fluoxetine general information

What is Arrow-Fluoxetine used for?

Arrow-Fluoxetine dispersible tablets 20mg are used to treat depression and symptoms of depressive illness, including anxiety, loss of interest in usual activities, disturbed sleep, change in appetite, fatigue, feelings of worthlessness or guilt, difficulty thinking or concentrating, and recurrent thoughts of suicide.  Arrow-Fluoxetine dispersible tablets 20mg are also used to treat other mood disorders that affect daily activities and relationships with others including, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) and panic disorder in adults and children; also, bulimia nervosa (psychiatric eating disorder ) and premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD), a severe form of premenstrual syndrome.

How does Arrow-Fluoxetine work?

Arrow-Fluoxetine dispersible tablets 20mg contain fluoxetine which is an antidepressant belonging to the class of drugs known as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI).  Arrow-Fluoxetine dispersible tablets 20mg act in the brain to correct the chemical imbalance that is thought to be one of the major causes of depression and other mood disorders, particularly a lack of serotonin (a neurotransmitter or brain chemical that allows nerve cells to communicate) which controls many body activities, including regulating mood.  Fluoxetine in Arrow-Fluoxetine dispersible tablets 20mg block the reuptake of serotonin from the synapse, which is the gap between nerve cells across which chemical messages are sent from one nerve cell to another.  If the re-uptake of serotonin by the first nerve cell (pre-synaptic) is blocked, this means that there is more serotonin remaining for the receiving nerve cell (post-synaptic), which allows nerve cells to communicate with each other for longer.  The action of Arrow-Fluoxetine dispersible tablets 20mg helps relieve symptoms of depression and other mood disorders by increasing the amount of serotonin in the brain, which in turn increases stimulation of nerve pathways that control mood.  Arrow-Fluoxetine dispersible tablets 20mg are formulated for easy dispersion and can be swallowed whole or in suspension if you have difficulty swallowing tablets.

What does Arrow-Fluoxetine contain?

Arrow-Fluoxetine dispersible tablets 20mg contain the active ingredient fluoxetine which is an SSRI antidepressant used to treat symptoms of depression.  They also contain microcrystalline cellulose, croscarmellose sodium, colloidal anhydrous silica, magnesium stearate.

Treating depression with Arrow-Fluoxetine

Arrow-Fluoxetine dispersible tablets 20mg contain fluoxetine, which is an antidepressant belonging to the class of drugs known as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI), used to treat symptoms of depression, including anxiety, loss of interest in usual activities, disturbed sleep, change in appetite, fatigue, feelings of worthlessness or guilt, difficulty thinking or concentrating and recurrent thoughts of suicide.  One of the major causes of depression is thought to be a lack of serotonin, which is a neurotransmitter (brain chemical that allows nerve cells to communicate) that controls mood.  Arrow-Fluoxetine works by specifically blocking the reuptake of serotonin from the synapse, or gap between nerve cells across which chemical messages are sent to allow nerve cell to communicate with each other.  By preventing the reuptake of serotonin by the first nerve cell (pre-synaptic) there is more serotonin remaining for the receiving nerve cell (post-synaptic), so that nerve cells can communicate with each other for longer which increases stimulation of nerve pathways that control mood changes, relieving symptoms of depression.  

Arrow-Fluoxetine bulimia nervosa

Arrow-Fluoxetine dispersible tablets 20mg contain fluoxetine, which is an antidepressant belonging to the class of drugs known as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI), used to treat symptoms of bulimia nervosa, which is an psychiatric eating disorder that involves binge eating in response to an stress, depression or anxiety, followed by compensatory behaviour, usually induced vomiting.  One of the causes this type of anxiety behaviour seen in bulimia nervosa is thought to be low levels of serotonin, which is a neurotransmitter (brain chemical that allows nerve cells to communicate) and if there is a lack of serotonin, the brain cells involved in nerve pathways that control mood changes generate feelings of anxiety and panic instead of well-being, which is associated with high levels of serotonin.  Fluoxetine in Arrow-Fluoxetine dispersible tablets 20mg works by blocking the reuptake of serotonin from the synapse, or gap between nerve cells across which chemical messages are sent to allow nerve cell to communicate with each other.  By preventing the reuptake of serotonin by the first nerve cell (pre-synaptic) there is more serotonin remaining for the receiving nerve cell (post-synaptic), so that nerve cells can communicate with each other for longer which increases stimulation of nerve pathways that control mood changes, relieving symptoms of bulimia nervosa.

Arrow-Fluoxetine for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

Arrow-Fluoxetine dispersible tablets 20mg contain fluoxetine which is an antidepressant belonging to the class of drugs known as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI), used to treat symptoms of obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), including intrusive unwanted repetitive thoughts and an irresistible urge to keep repeating certain actions, such as hand-washing or counting, to try and prevent some imagined dreaded event.  One of the major causes of OCD is thought to be low levels of serotonin, which is a neurotransmitter (brain chemical that allows nerve cells to communicate) and if there is a lack of serotonin, the brain cells involved in nerve pathways that control mood changes generate feelings of anxiety and panic instead of well-being, which is associated with high levels of serotonin.  Fluoxetine in Arrow-Fluoxetine dispersible tablets 20mg works by blocking the reuptake of serotonin from the synapse, or gap between nerve cells across which chemical messages are sent to allow nerve cells to communicate with each other.  By preventing the reuptake of serotonin by the first nerve cell (pre-synaptic) there is more serotonin remaining for the receiving nerve cell (post-synaptic), so that nerve cells can communicate with each other for longer which increases stimulation of nerve pathways that control mood changes, relieving symptoms of OC
