BENEFITS OF DULANE CAPSULE DR
In Treatment of Depression
Dulane 30 Capsule DR increases the levels of certain chemicals in the brain that improve our mood and behavior. This creates a feeling of wellbeing, relieves anxiety, reduces tension, helps you sleep better, and increases your energy levels. It is an effective antidepressant but may cause drowsiness. You need to take it regularly as it is prescribed for it to be most effective and should not stop taking it suddenly, even if you feel better, as it may worsen your condition.
In Treatment of Anxiety disorder
Dulane 30 Capsule DR stops your brain from releasing the chemicals that make you feel anxious so it can reduce the symptoms of excessive anxiety and worry. It can also reduce feelings of restlessness, tiredness, difficulty concentrating, feeling irritable, and sleep problems that often come with Anxiety Disorder. It will therefore help you go about your daily activities more easily and be more productive. Keep taking this medicine even if you feel well. Stopping suddenly can cause serious problems.
In Treatment of Diabetic nerve pain
High levels of blood sugar (glucose) levels in diabetic patients can cause damage to nerves and this can cause pain sensation. Dulane 30 Capsule DR helps reduce this damage by affecting chemicals in the brain called neurotransmitters. By relieving pain, it helps improve your quality of life.
In Treatment of Fibromyalgia
Dulane 30 Capsule DR may also be used to treat pain in people with fibromyalgia. It reduces pain and also the mood changes, sleep problems, and tiredness that can be caused by the pain. It interferes with pain messages traveling through the brain. Taking this medicine regularly will have an impact on your overall quality of life. Keep taking the medicine until your doctor advises you to stop.
In Treatment of Neuropathic pain
Dulane 30 Capsule DR is used to treat long-lasting (chronic) pain caused by nerve damage due to diabetes, shingles, or spinal cord injury. It interferes with pain signals that travel through the damaged nerves and the brain. Taking this medicine regularly will improve your physical and social functioning and overall quality of life. It takes a few weeks to work so you need to take it regularly even if you feel it is not doing any good.
In Treatment of Stress urinary incontinence
Stress urinary incontinence refers to the loss of urine without conscious intention. It may occur due to a disturbed state of mind and thoughts. Dulane 30 Capsule DR helps in increasing the activity of those nerves in the brain that control muscles in our bladder that are responsible for passing urine. This helps in improving bladder control.
