Solian-Tabs are known to contain an active ingredient called Amisulpride, which is actually a very common atypical anti-psychotic. It is generally used to treat schizophrenia. This substance is able to act on the patient’s brain, where it affects a neurotransmitter called dopamine. Dopamine is a chemical that is stored inside the nerve cells, being responsible for the connection between these cells. It is known that this kind of neurotransmitter is involved in regulating mood and behavior; a hyperactivity of this transmitter leads to schizophrenia, a disease that is associated with episodes of delusions and hallucinations, symptoms that are considered characteristic for this medical condition.
Solian-Tabs act by blocking the receptor inside the patient’s brain that dopamine works on. Generally, patients who are suffering from schizophrenia tent to experience positive symptoms such as hallucinations, or negative symptoms such as lack of emotion or social isolation. This kind of medication proved to be effective in relieving both symptoms of the disease, other medicines being effective only for the negative ones.
