About ETOVA MR FORTE 400MG/8MG TABLET

ETOVA MR FORTE 400MG/8MG TABLET belongs to a group of medicines called analgesics used to treat osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, pain, and muscle spasms. 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 (the body's immune system attacks its tissue), leading to joint pain and damage.
 
ETOVA MR FORTE 400MG/8MG TABLET is a combination of two drugs, namely: Etodolac (NSAID) and Thiocolchicoside (Muscle relaxant). Etodolac blocks the effect of a chemical messenger known as cyclo-oxygenase (COX) enzyme that makes other chemical prostaglandins (PG). By blocking the effect of COX enzymes, lesser PGs are produced. This helps in reducing mild to moderate pain and inflammation at the injured or damaged site. Thiocolchicoside works on the centres of the spinal cord and brain. This helps relieve muscle stiffness and improves muscle movements, thereby helping relieve pain due to muscle spasms.
 
Take ETOVA MR FORTE 400MG/8MG TABLET with food to avoid stomach upset. Swallow ETOVA MR FORTE 400MG/8MG TABLET as a whole with water; do not crush or chew the tablet.

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.
