About Daflon 500 mg Tablet 10's

Daflon 500 mg Tablet 10's belongs to the group of medicines that falls under the category of anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory medications. It is primarily used to treat varicose veins (twisted and enlarged veins), lymphedema (swelling of arms and legs), and acute and chronic haemorrhoids (swollen veins of lower rectum and anus).

Daflon 500 mg Tablet 10's contains diosmin and hesperidine, both have anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.

Patients Concern

Disease/Condition Glossary

Varicose veins: When the veins become enlarged and twisted, they are called varicose. The most commonly affected veins are those of the legs as walking and standing increase pressure on the veins of the lower body. It can lead to pain and discomfort, and sometimes more severe complications.

Lymphedema: It generally refers to swelling in the legs and arms (sometimes one and sometimes both). It occurs when the lymph nodes are damaged or removed as a part of cancer treatment. As a result, the lymphatic system is blocked, which prevents fluid in the lymph from draining out. Hence, the legs and arms swell up.

Haemorrhoids: When the lower rectum and anus veins are swollen, it is known as haemorrhoids or piles. Haemorrhoids can be internal (inside the rectum) or external (under the skin around the anus). It can be treated sometimes by simple lifestyle changes and home treatments. The exact cause for it is not known.
