Jelly, this is something you should have asked the doctor who wrote the prescription ( NEVER acept a prescription for a new drug without asking the doctor what it does, what it's side-effects are, etc ) and ALWAYS also ask the pharmacist when they fill the prescription. I have no idea why your doctor may have prescribed Espiride, as its an odd drug I have NEVER used in decades of practice. It is one I never even heard of in some other advanced countries, but seems peculiarlyu popular with some SA doctors, who use it for Depression ( though its not really a major antidepressant ) or for anxiety, or for confusion, or for many different reasons. So, sorry, I can't guess what your doctor intended with this particular drug
