Anagraine

Metoclopramide hydrochloride / Paracetamol


Consumer Medicine Information

What is in this leaflet

This leaflet answers some common questions about Anagraine. It does not contain all the available information. It does not take the place of talking to your pharmacist or doctor.

All medicines have risks and benefits.

If you have any concerns about taking this medicine, talk to your doctor or pharmacist.

Keep this leaflet with the medicine. You may need to read it again.

What Anagraine is used for

Anagraine is used for the relief of headache, nausea and vomiting associated with migraine.

Anagraine contains the active ingredients metoclopramide (as metoclopramide hydrochloride anhydrous) and paracetamol.

Metoclopramide helps control nausea and vomiting caused by migraine and other illnesses. It works by blocking the action of a chemical in the brain which causes nausea and vomiting. It also acts in the stomach and upper intestine to increase muscle contractions.

Paracetamol is an analgesic. It provides effective temporary relief from pain.

There is no evidence that Anagraine is addictive.

Before you take it

When you must not take it

Do not take Anagraine if you have ever had an allergic reaction to:

  • metoclopramide

  • any of the ingredients listed at the end of this leaflet.

Symptoms of an allergic reaction may include asthma, wheezing, shortness of breath, swelling of the face, lips or tongue which may cause difficulty in swallowing or breathing, skin rash, itching or hives.

Do not take it if you have any of the following conditions:

  • bleeding from the stomach and/or digestive tract
  • intestinal blockage
  • recent surgery on the stomach and/or digestive tract
  • phaeochromocytoma (a rare tumour of the adrenal gland).

  • you are pregnant, or intend to become pregnant 
    It may affect your developing baby if you take it during pregnancy.
  • you are breast-feeding or intend to breast-feed 
    Anagraine passes into breast milk and therefore may harm the baby.

If you have not told your doctor or pharmacist about any of the above, tell them before you take Anagraine.
