Is it safe to continue Rekool for a long term for gastritis?

My 32 years old married female relative is taking Rekool 20 for the last 18 months continuously for her Gastritis problem. The medicine use keeps her fine while its discontinuance even for a short period aggravates her problems. Is it safe to continue the above medicine for 2 years non-stop continuously?

Hi,

There is the possibility of decreased sweating, heat stroke or metabolic imbalance due to Zonisamide. So it is best avoided in children. Especially staying in tropical areas; where the side effects are more common.

Please discuss with her treating doctor before you start giving her the medicine and get your doubt satisfied. Probably doctor has found the benefits of the drug more than the side effects.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Vasudha Jayant Athavale, General & Family Physician
