How SYMBAL 500 MG TABLET works:
In people with depression and anxiety, Dutop mostly starts working within two weeks of treatment. However, you may take 2-4 weeks to feel better.

Consult your doctor if you do not feel better after 2 months.
Q. If I start feeling better, can I stop taking Dutop?
No, you should not stop Dutop suddenly and without consulting your doctor. In cases of depression and anxiety, if you have been feeling better for 6 months or more, your doctor may reduce your doses gradually. In case of pain and incontinence, if you are feeling better, continue taking it for long term. Your doctor will keep monitoring your response to the medicine every few months.
Q. Is Dutop highly addictive?
No, Dutop is not habit-forming (addictive). This means that it does not make you physically or psychologically dependent on it.
Q. What will be the consequences if I stop taking Dutop suddenly?
If you stop Dutop suddenly, you may feel dizzy, tired, agitated or restless, anxious and irritated. You may also experience sleep disturbances (vivid dreams, nightmares, inability to sleep), nausea, vomiting, shaking, muscle pain, diarrhea, a piercing sensation (pins and needles) especially in the head and excessive sweating or vertigo. Always consult your doctor before you stop taking Dutop. Your doctor will reduce the dose gradually.
