Tetrabenazine is given to patients who are suffering from hyperkinetic disorders. It is essential to mention that Tetrabenazine is not a cure but a measure for treatment of Huntington’s disease (and cholera that it causes), Tardive dyskinesia, Hemiballismus, and most notably – tic disorders and Tourette syndrome.
The medication can be generic, but it is also found as a branded drug named Xenazine.
How does Tetrabenazine work?
Tetrabenazine was the first drug in this category to be approved for Huntington’s disease. The entire mechanism of action remains a topic of slight debate, but it has something to do with the fact that Tetrabenazine can reversibly inhibit vesicular monoamine transporter 2. This fact depletes the storage of monoamine and helps ease the disease.
Daily dosage & other important info
Even Tetrabenazine manufacturers and distributors cannot know and disclose the proper dosage. The daily dosage of these drugs depends on a range of variables that involve the age of the patient, the severity of the disease, and many more factors.
Other important information discloses that this pharmaceutical product should not be used together with MAO inhibitors, such as linezolid, phenelzine, rasagiline, selegiline, etc. If the patient has used them in the past two weeks, Tetrabenazine should not be administered as they can interact in a way that is harmful to the patient.
Furthermore, patients who are diagnosed with depression and/or untreated liver disease should not be given Tetrabenazine as it aggravates the problems, as mentioned earlier. Additionally, at least three weeks must past after taking the last dose of reserpine before Tetrabenazine can be administered.
