Health Education Council:
This medication is intended to alleviate a temporary state of fatigue.
It is necessary to distinguish normal physical fatigue occurring as a result of a major effort for example and asthenia which is fatigue outside of any effort.
· Fatigue arising from physical exertion is normal: rest is enough to make it disappear.
· Fatigue that does not give in to rest or asthenia is the feeling of not being able to provide an effort before it even began. This fatigue can be the consequence of overwork, of a disease.
Some medications may also cause unusual fatigue: read the package leaflet for medications you are taking and ask for advice from your pharmacist or doctor. But in many cases no precise cause is found.
Fatigue can be manifested by very variable symptoms. This can be a general impression of weakness. But sometimes symptoms can be associated with it such as sleep disorders (insomnia, restless sleep, ...), intellectuals (difficulties of concentration, memory and attention ...), sexual (decreased desire ...) of the character (irritability, pessimism, sadness, demotivation ...).
You can reduce your fatigue by respecting as much as possible the following tips:
· Rest, relax, look for the reasons for your fatigue.
· Practice regular and appropriate physical activity.
· Have a balanced diet (especially avoid alcohol, tobacco, stimulants).
· Find your sleeping rhythm (regular bedtime and sufficient sleeping time).
Seek advice from your pharmacist or doctor in the following cases:
· No improvement after 1 month of treatment.
· Increased feeling of fatigue during treatment.
· Occurrence of new symptoms or unusual symptoms.
Historically specialists in the fight against pain and self-medication, the UPSA laboratories (Scientific Applied Pharmacology Union) were created in Agen in 1935 by Dr Camille Bru.
Built in Bristol-Myers Squibb in 1994, the UPSA Company has given way since the UPSA brand. Through the brand UPSA, Bristol-Myers Squibb is currently the only company of the drug to provide a full range of three orders of analgesics, aspirin to morphine.
This diversity allows to apply to all patients - from infants to the elderly - and suggest treatments adapted to all types of pain. Cough, cold, flu symptoms, digestion, shape, sleep disorders: through its range of self-medication, UPSA develops and makes available drugs for pain daily.
Because health moves, the UPSA brand is in constant pursuit of innovation. The pharmaceutical development center based on the site UPSA Agen allows it to adapt to the changing needs of patients with whom she has forged a relationship of trust. Leader of family medication, UPSA brand is constantly trying to help them in their daily health, the quality and accessibility of its products. These values are of UPSA, in France as in Europe, the health everyday ally.
You will find in this category stimulating and energizing drugs to be in shape all day. No more strokes!
