How does Buccastem work?
Prochlorperazine works effectively to treat symptoms like nausea and vomiting by inhibiting dopamine receptors in that part of your brain that is responsible for controlling vomiting and nausea. In the brain, an area known as the vomiting centre controls vomiting. This vomiting centre is the one which is responsible for causing nausea as well as the vomiting reflex. The centre is activated the moment it gets nerve messages from a part of the brain identified as the chemoreceptor trigger zone or CTZ and from your gut. What prochlorperazine does is that it blocks the dopamine receptors which are in the CTZ, thus stopping the CTZ from transmitting messages to the centre which would cause vomiting and nausea.
How do I take Buccastem?
Prior to taking the medication, make sure that you read the instructions that come with the medication very carefully. If your doctor has prescribed 5mg tablets, then make sure that you swallow them with water; do not chew them. If it is the 3mg buccal tablets, these must be taken by placing them between your gum and the upper lip. After placing it, just leave it to dissolve there. The 5mg tablets must not be used in that way. Try to take the prescribed dose at the same time each day. It is normal to forget taking your medication. If you do, simply take it when you remember, unless of course it is almost time for you to take another dose. If that is the case, simply ignore the missed dose.
Are there side effects?
As with most types of medicines, Buccastem also has its common side effects. However, not everyone will be affected by these side effects. The side effects include:
