EDANOX 20ML INJ
NEON LABORATORIES LTD
EDANOX 20ML INJ belongs to a class of medication known as 'neuro-protective', primarily indicated in the treatment of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). This medicine prevents and treats the further progression of this neurological (specialized cells responsible for sending signals to the brain) disease. ALS is a progressive neurological disease that damages the nerve cells responsible for walking, chewing, talking especially the brain and spinal cord. As this disease is progressive so its symptoms get worse over time if the right treatment is not provided.
EDANOX 20ML INJ contains 'Edaravone' that helps to slow down the worsening of the neurological disease. It is an antioxidant that prevents the death of nerve cells and preserves the functioning of muscles. EDANOX 20ML INJ helps to keep nerve cells healthy so that an individual can perform normal activities like walking, eating during the day.
EDANOX 20ML INJ will be administered by a healthcare professional; do not self-administer. In some cases, you may experience walking, bruising and headache. Most of these side effects of EDANOX 20ML INJ do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if the side effects are persistent, reach out to your doctor.

Although EDANOX 20ML INJ is safe for old patients still it should only be injected in older persons after asking a doctor as older individuals are more sensitive to the negative effects of the medicine.
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)
EDANOX 20ML INJ is used to treat certain nerve diseases like amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. It is used to slow down the worsening of this disease. This medicine has antioxidant properties that slow down the process that kills and damages the neurons (oxidative). When EDANOX 20ML INJ is injected it relieves the effects of oxidative stress and preserves healthy nerves and muscle function. By doing so, it helps a person to carry out their daily activities like walking, maintaining good posture, speaking and chewing. However, EDANOX 20ML INJ does not permanently cure this disease and also it does not reverse the nerve damage that already happened.

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis: It is a neurological disorder that affects the action of nerves to control muscle movements. Due to this muscle weakens and the body starts working differently. If not diagnosed and treated at right time, it may also affect the nerves that control breathing which can be life-threatening. This disease usually affects the nerve cells in the body and spinal cord that causes muscle weakness, breathing issues. As ALS is a progressive disease, symptoms get worsen with time and in some time, a person is no longer able to control their legs, face and arms. Common symptoms of ALS are trouble in doing regular activities, weakness in the legs and ankles, trouble in maintaining good posture, outbursts of laughing orc, trying and problem breathing in later stages.
