About FENCETA 325MG TABLET

FENCETA 325MG TABLET belongs to a class of painkillers called as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). It relieves symptoms of muscle pain, arthritis pain, dysmenorrhea (painful periods or menstrual cramps), dental pain and reduces fever. Pain can be temporary (acute) or long-lasting (chronic) in nature. Acute pain is for a short time caused by damage to the tissues of the muscle, bone, or other organs. While, chronic pain lasts for a long duration and is  caused due to pathologies like nerve damage, osteoarthritis 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.

FENCETA 325MG TABLET is composed of two medicines namely Ibuprofen and Paracetamol. Ibuprofen 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 by promoting heat loss (through sweating) that helps reset the hypothalamic thermostat. Together all these two medicines help in reducing mild to moderate pain in a shorter duration.

FENCETA 325MG TABLET can be taken with or after the meal. If stomach upset or irritation occurs, it is advisable to take FENCETA 325MG TABLET with food or milk.
