About Dolokind SR Tablet 10's

Dolokind SR Tablet 10's belongs to a group of medicines called Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs) or pain killers used to reduce and relieve pain, and inflammation (swelling) associated with osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and ankylosing spondylitis. Arthritis is a condition which affects the joints. Symptoms include swelling, pain, inflammation, stiffness, and tenderness. 

Dolokind SR Tablet 10's contains 'Aceclofenac' which works by blocking the effect of a chemical messenger known as cyclo-oxygenase (COX) enzyme that makes other chemical prostaglandins. By blocking the effect of COX enzymes, lesser prostaglandins are produced. This helps in reducing mild to moderate pain and inflammation at the injured or damaged site.

You are advised to take Dolokind SR Tablet 10's for as long as your doctor has prescribed it for you depending on your medical condition. In some cases, Dolokind SR Tablet 10's may cause certain common side-effects such as dizziness, diarrhoea, nausea, and increased liver enzymes in the blood. Most of these side effects do not require medical attention and will resolve gradually over time. However, you are advised to talk to your doctor if you experience these side effects persistently.

Consult your doctor if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Dolokind SR Tablet 10's may cause drowsiness and dizziness, so drive with caution. Dolokind SR Tablet 10's is not recommended for children as safety and efficacy have not been established. Avoid consuming alcohol along with Dolokind SR Tablet 10's as it could lead to increased drowsiness and dizziness; it might also increase the risk of stomach bleeding. Keep your doctor informed about your health condition and medicines to rule out any side effects.

    Patients Concern

    Disease/Condition Glossary

    Osteoarthritis: It is a degenerative joint disease in which the two ends of the joints come together due to the breakdown of a protective covering called cartilage. Due to the absence of this protective covering, the joints rub against each other, leading to pain and stiffness. Symptoms of osteoarthritis include pain, stiffness, inflammation and tenderness. The main reason for osteoarthritis is age, the older you are, the more likely you could get osteoarthritis, thus known as degenerative disease, meaning that the joints wear out as a person ages. Other reasons include a past injury such as torn cartilage, dislocated joints and ligament injuries. 

    Rheumatoid arthritis: It is an auto-immune disease (the body's immune system attacks its tissue) which leads to joint pain and damage. Symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis include pain, swelling, stiffness, deformities and loss of joint function. 

    Ankylosing spondylitis: It causes pain and stiffness in the spine. The pain usually starts in the lower back and can spread to the neck, damaged joints or other parts of the body. Symptoms of ankylosing spondylitis include decreased flexibility which usually leads to hunched-forward posture, pain and back and joints.
