COMPOSITION

Each tablet of Gooday contains

Doxylamine Succinate........20 Mg

Pyridoxine HCl......20 mg 

 


Clinical Pharmacology:

Doxylamine succinate in Gooday, provides the antinauseant and antiemetic activity. Studies have shown that Pyridoxine itself could have an antinauseant activity apart from being a effective supplement of vitamin B6 to prevent a possible pyridoxine deficiency during pregnancy. The onset of the antiemetic activity of Gooday is delayed by a special polymer coating of the tablet; a dose taken at night will be effective in the morning, the time when it is most needed.
 
Indications and Clinical Uses:
In the management of nausea and vomiting of pregnancy (NVP).
 
Precautions
Gooday is not advisable during lactation since pyridoxine can inhibit breast milk secretion. Gooday should be co-administered with caution along with other central nervous depressants, alcohol, in epileptic and levodopa-treated Parkinson patients.

Due to risk of drowsiness, Gooday must be prescribed with caution to automobile drivers and machine operators.
 
Adverse Reactions:
Doxylamine succinate may cause drowsiness, vertigo, nervousness, epigastric pain, headache, palpitation, diarrhea, disorientation, irritability, convulsions, urinary retention or insomnia. Pyridoxine is a vitamin that is generally recognized as having no adverse effects.
 
Contraindications
Gooday should not be used in patients who have previously exhibited hypersensitivity to its ingredients.
