DOLOMIDE TABLET belongs to a class of painkillers called non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). Pain can be temporary (acute) or long-lasting (chronic) in nature. Acute pain is caused by damage to the tissues of the muscle, bone or other organs for a short time. While, chronic pain lasts for a long duration and is caused due to pathologies like nerve damage, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, etc. Besides this, it is also useful for dental pain, which can occur due to damage to the tooth nerve, infection, decay, extraction or injury.
DOLOMIDE TABLET is composed of two medicines: Nimesulide and Paracetamol. Together it relieves symptoms of arthritis, dysmenorrhea (painful periods or menstrual cramps) and reduces fever. Nimesulide is known to have an analgesic and anti-inflammatory effect for reducing mild to moderate pain. It works by blocking the effect of a chemical known as prostaglandin responsible for inducing pain and inflammation in our body. Paracetamol acts as a mild analgesic and antipyretic (fever reducer). It lowers the elevated body temperature and mild pain by inhibiting the synthesis of a chemical messenger (prostaglandin) and promoting heat loss (through sweating) that helps reset the hypothalamic thermostat. Together it helps in reducing mild to moderate pain in a shorter duration.
