Headache. Sibelium prescribed. Is it safe? - Online Doctor Chats
doc just wanted to check : i was prescribed Sibelium 10 mg for head ache ( persistant) by an eye specialist
so wanted to know what does this tab do?
i was asked to use this tab for one month post dinner everyday
this is a calcium channel blocker, which reduces blood pressure in the cerebral blood vessels , and helps to reduce chronic headaches
is it safe to use it for a month?
yes, it is absolutely safe
but is it a remedy of a stop gap arrangement for head ache
this is a very common medication, used in treatment of headaches , specifically , due to migraines
as i had been having headache persistantly, and post taking this tab, am not having it
would the headache stop once i stop the use of the tab?
so , since the tablet is working, you can continue using it
yes, it would stop in most cases
oh ok... any other diet/food precautions i need to take to syop headache
in some cases, patients may need to continue the medication, for a few more, months, at a reduced dosage, before stopping completely
i also developed mouth ulser once i started having this tab, does it have any link to mouth ulcer?
in case you have any increase in symptoms , with specific foods, you should avoid them
but as such, there are no dietary restrictions
some people have symptoms on intake of icecreams, or chocolates, high spicy foods
in case, you can tolerate them, and do not have issues, u can have them
the medication, is not associated with mouth ulcers , it would just be a co incidence
oh ok, thanks
You are welcome
thanks doc, bye..
take care , have a good day
