Tetrabenazine is a medication that is used to treat movement disorders, specifically Huntington's disease and certain types of hyperkinetic movement disorders, such as chorea associated with Huntington's disease. Tetrabenazine works by reducing the amount of dopamine available in certain areas of the brain, which can help to improve control of movements.
Tetrabenazine 25 mg tablets are the oral form of this medication. The recommended starting dose for adults is typically 25 mg once daily, with the dose gradually increased over several weeks to a maximum of 100 mg daily, depending on the individual's response and tolerance to the medication. The tablets are typically taken with food to minimize potential stomach upset.
