About Feldex Tablet

Feldex Tablet used to relieve symptoms like pain, inflammation and joint stiffness associated with 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). Rheumatoid arthritis is an auto-immune disease (the body's immune system attacks its tissue), leading to joint pain and damage.

Feldex Tablet contains 'Piroxicam' that works by blocking the effect of a chemical messenger in the body, known as cyclo-oxygenase (COX) enzymes that make another chemical prostaglandins. Prostaglandins are produced at injury sites and cause pain and swelling. By blocking the effect of COX enzymes, lesser prostaglandins are produced, which reduces mild to moderate pain and inflammation at the injured or damaged site.

Take Feldex Tablet as prescribed. In some cases, you may experience certain common side effects, such as diarrhoea, dizziness, nausea, vomiting, and stomach pain. Most of these side effects do not require medical attention and will resolve gradually over time. However, you are advised to speak to your doctor if you experience these side effects persistently.

Feldex Tablet can increase your risk of a fatal heart attack or stroke. So, if you have had any recent heart bypass surgery, do not take Feldex Tablet unless prescribed by the doctor. Feldex Tablet increases the chances of stomach ulcers and bleeding. Consult your doctor before taking Feldex Tablet if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.

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 might 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), leading to joint pain and damage. Symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis include pain, swelling, stiffness, deformities, and loss of joint function.
