What is Tab Lesuride 25 mg given for, what will be the side effects, and when should it be taken before or after meals.

Lesuride contains Levosulpiride and this is a prokinetic, at high doses it can cause tremor and movement problems. Food intake and meal size before dosing significantly affect the gastrointestinal absorption of sulpiride. So it should be taken before meals.
