About DICOLIV MR TABLET

DICOLIV MR TABLET belongs to the class of drugs known as 'non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug' (NSAID). DICOLIV MR TABLET is used in the reduction of musculoskeletal pain due to tissue injury, resolution of post surgery inflammation and oedema (swollen tissue with fluid). Pain can be temporary (acute) or long term(chronic) in nature. Musculoskeletal pain can be caused due to soft tissues (muscle, tendon, and ligaments) injury. Extreme tissue pain and inflammation caused due to sprains, strains or trauma or post-surgery may require a prolonged amount of time to heal.

DICOLIV MR TABLET is a fixed-dose combination composed of three medicines namely: Diclofenac, Paracetamol and Chlorzoxazone. Diclofenac works by blocking the action of a chemical messenger known as cyclo-oxygenase (COX) which causes pain and swelling at the injured or damaged tissue site. Paracetamol acts as a mild analgesic (mild pain reducer) and antipyretic (fever reducer) which enhances the pain relief action of Diclofenac. Third medicine i.e. Chlorzoxazone is a muscle relaxant, helps by blocking nerve impulses or pain sensations sent by the brain and causes relaxation of muscles.

DICOLIV MR TABLET can be taken with or after the meal. To avoid stomach upset DICOLIV MR TABLET can be taken with food or milk. It should be swallowed whole with a glass of water. Do not take DICOLIV MR TABLET if your pain lasts for more than ten days or fever lasting for more than three days. Do not take a double dose if you missed one dose. Like all medicines, DICOLIV MR TABLET may cause side effects, although not everybody gets them. Most of the side effects of DICOLIV MR TABLET are drowsiness, constipation, diarrhoea, stomach upset, slight discolouration of urine, and ringing or buzzing sounds in the ears. In case of any discomfort, speak with your doctor. 

Do not take DICOLIV MR TABLET if you are allergic to painkillers like aspirin, paracetamol, naproxen or diclofenac. It is not recommended for use in children, people with liver disease, heart disease or gastric ulcers/bleeding problems. DICOLIV MR TABLET may be associated with a small increase in the risk of heart attack (myocardial infarction). Avoid consumption of alcohol as it may damage your liver and cause even more side effects on taking this drug. Consult your doctor if your symptoms of pain, inflammation and fever do not disappear even after ten days.
