About Arcfen-TH Tablet 10's

Arcfen-TH Tablet 10's is a combination medication used to reduce and relieve pain due to muscle spasms (painful muscular contractions) associated with degenerative vertebral disorders, vertebral static problems, dorsal pain, low back pain, and torticollis (neck muscle contractions).

Arcfen-TH Tablet 10's is a combination of two drugs: Thiocolchicoside (muscle relaxant) and Aceclofenac (a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug). Thiocolchicoside is a muscle relaxant that works on the centres of spinal cord and brain. This helps relieve muscle stiffness and improves muscle movements, thereby relieves pain due to muscle spasms. Aceclofenac is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (pain killer) that works by blocking the action of cyclo-oxygenase (COX) enzyme in the body involved in the production of certain chemical substances such as prostaglandins that cause pain and swelling.

Take Arcfen-TH Tablet 10's as prescribed. Your doctor will advise you on how often you take your tablets based on your medical condition. You may experience diarrhoea, dizziness, nausea, vomiting, stomach pain, or increased liver enzymes in the blood in some cases. Most of these side effects of Arcfen-TH Tablet 10's do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if the side effects persist or worsen, please consult your doctor.

If you are allergic to Arcfen-TH Tablet 10's or any other medicines, please tell your doctor. Arcfen-TH Tablet 10's is not recommended for children below 18 years of age. Avoid taking Arcfen-TH Tablet 10's if you are pregnant as it may cause harm to the foetus. Arcfen-TH Tablet 10's is excreted in breast milk. Therefore, Arcfen-TH Tablet 10's is contraindicated in breastfeeding women as it may cause adverse effects in the baby. If you have asthma, diabetes, high blood pressure, stomach ulcer, high cholesterol, chickenpox, porphyria (rare inherited disorder), systemic lupus erythematosus (an autoimmune disease), ulcerative colitis or Crohn’s disease (conditions causing swelling of the bowel, diarrhoea, bowel pain, vomiting and weight loss), galactose intolerance, Lapp lactase deficiency, glucose-galactose malabsorption, G-6-PD deficiency (a hereditary condition resulting in low red blood cell counts), fits, muscular hypotonia (decreased muscle tone), flaccid paresis (loose and floppy limbs), bleeding or blood clotting disorders, kidney, liver or heart diseases, inform your doctor before taking Arcfen-TH Tablet 10's.

    Patients Concern

    Disease/Condition Glossary

    Pain: It is a symptom triggered by the nervous system, causing uncomfortable sensations in the body. Muscle spasm is the sudden involuntary contractions of the muscle, which can be painful and uncomfortable. When the nerve impulses that control the muscle movements are damaged or interrupted, it could lead to muscle spasms. Symptoms include muscle tightness, joint stiffness, unusual posture, difficulty in moving, and pain in affected muscles and joints. Fatigue (weakness), stress, extreme heat or cold, infection, and tight clothing can trigger muscle spasms. Muscle relaxants and exercise can treat muscle spasms. Muscle relaxants sedate the muscle and help in inhibiting painful contractions. Whereas, exercise helps in muscle stretching to be less likely to spasm, tear and sprain.
