What is Aqua Ban

Many women experience water retention days before their monthly periods. This happens even without their notice. They normally talk of discomforts like bloating with no understanding of the underlying medical condition. Aquaban Diuretic Tablets are medically fit to treat this Premenstrual Syndrome as it contains ammonium chloride and caffeine as active ingredients that help the body to get rid of excess water.

What Dose Should I Choose?

For women suffering from premenstrual water retention, this medicine should be taken in strict adherence to the patient's leaflet descriptions or as advised by the doctor or pharmacist. The recommended dose is as follows;

  • Take 2 Aquaban tablets 3 times in a day
  • Tablets are to be swallowed with a sip of water after meals.
  • Take Aquaban tablets for 4 or 5 days before your periods. Note the tablets should not be taken for more than 5 days.
  • It is advisable to stop using the tablets once the periods start
  • Tablets are not recommended for children under the age of 12 years
  • In case you take more aquaban than the prescribed dosage (Overdose), seek medical advice immediately
  • In case you skipped to take your tablets, do not double up your dose to compensate for the forgotten dose.

How Should I Take Aquaban Diuretic Tablets?

Follow these doctor's/pharmacist's instruction while taking the tablets

Aquaban Diuretic Tablets are taken orally alongside a glass of water. Take only 2 tablets, 3 times a day for 5 days translating into a dose of 30 tablets.

How Aquaban Diuretic Tablets work

Aquaban tablets have two diuretics; ammonium chloride and caffeine. These two active ingredients help you get rid of the excess water which can accumulate in your body before experiencing the periods. Apart from relieving you from the premenstrual bloat, Aquaban reduces puffiness and tenderness that are likely to affect women with water retention issues.

For How Long Do I Take Aquaban Diuretic Tablets Before I Notice a Difference?

It is medically disastrous if you decide to take the tabs against the doctor's or pharmacist's prescription. The right dose consists of 30 tablets. If you follow the instructions strictly, all discomforts treated by this medication should be gone by the 5th day. If you have not felt well after the full dose, get in touch with your doctor or pharmacist.

How Effective are Aquaban Diuretic Tablets?

Water retention happens when one's body, for one or many reasons, fails to pass out enough fluid through the common natural processes like sweating or visiting the loo. Symptoms mainly include swollen hands, abdomen, or ankles.

These symptoms constitute what is largely referred to as the Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS). They can be emotional or physical. They mainly occur during the luteal phase of a woman's menstrual cycle. During this stage, the probability of women to experience water retention is quite high owing to the changes in hormonal levels. Though symptoms may vary from across women, treatment, especially water retention in thighs, abdomen, ankles, fingers, and breasts, is by taking the rightful dose of Aquaban Diuretic Tablets.

Medical researchers have confirmed that women suffering from PMS tend to have a malfunction in the hormonal production processes during the menstrual cycle. Different women were found to be deficient in progesterone, while others had more estrogen levels than the normally expected.

Aquaban is medically effective in relieving water retention associated explicitly with monthly periods, and it is supposed to be used days before your period. It aids your body in flushing out the excess water stored before experiencing the periods. This helps to relieve bloating hence feeling more comfortable.

What is the Difference between Aquaban Diuretic Tablets and Analgesics (Acetaminophen or NSAIDs?)/ Pyridoxine (Vitamin B6)

Medical experts also propose the use of Analgesics, which they have argued are effective in the reduction of Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS). Analgesics help to reduce physical symptoms like cramps, headache, and general bodily pain before periods.

Like with the latter, a medic should be consulted for the best prescription and advice on how to navigate the side effects.

Vitamin B6 is also used in the treatment of PMS symptoms like fatigue, irritability or bloating. The recommended doses, however, should not exceed 100 mg per day lest you make your system vulnerable to neuropathy.

As an effective medication for PMS, Aquaban contains the following active substances per tablet.

  • Ammonium Chloride – 325 mg
  • Caffeine- 100 mg

Other ingredients include;

Core: Microcrystalline Cellulose, Magnesium Stearate and Povidone

Coating: Benzoic Acid, Iron Oxide, Hypromellose, Colloidal Anhydrous Silica, Methacrylic Acid Copolymer, FD &C Blue #2, Sodium Lauryl Sulphate, Simethicone, Stearate Emuslfiers, Sorbic Acid, Talc, Thickeners, Titanium Dioxide and Triethyl Citrate.
