About DOLONEX IM 20MG INJECTION 1ML

DOLONEX IM 20MG INJECTION 1ML belongs to the group of medications known as NSAID's (Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs) used to relieve symptoms like pain, inflammation and joint stiffness caused by rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. Osteoarthritis is a degenerative joint disease in which the two ends of the joints come together due to the breakdown of a protective covering (cartilage). Due to the absence of this protective covering, the joints rub against each other, leading to pain and stiffness. Rheumatoid arthritis is an auto-immune disease (body's immune system attacks its tissue), leading to joint pain and damage.

DOLONEX IM 20MG INJECTION 1ML works by blocking the effect of a chemical messenger in your body, known as cyclo-oxygenase (COX) enzymes that make another chemical 'prostaglandins' (PG). These prostaglandins are produced at injury sites and cause pain and swelling. By blocking the effect of COX enzymes, lesser PGs are produced, which reduces mild to moderate pain and inflammation at the injured or damaged site.

DOLONEX IM 20MG INJECTION 1ML can be taken with a meal or empty stomach. The capsule form of DOLONEX IM 20MG INJECTION 1ML should not be chewed, broken, or crushed, rather swallowed as a whole with a glass of water.
