How It Work?

Acuvert Tablet is a dopamine antagonist. It has an antipsychotic effect by blocking the action of dopamine, a chemical messenger in the brain that affects thoughts and mood. Dopamine also controls the region in the brain that causes nausea and vomiting. Therefore, Acuvert Tablet also shows an antiemetic action.
