About MAXCEPROL 200MG CAPSULE

MAXCEPROL 200MG CAPSULE belongs to the class of other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory and antirheumatic products used to treat osteoarthritis. Osteoarthritis is a common type of arthritis in which the cartilage that cushions the bone's ends erodes due to wear and tear over time. Common symptoms are joint pain and stiffness. The risk of osteoarthritis increases with increasing age.

MAXCEPROL 200MG CAPSULE contains ‘Oxaceprol’. It shows anti-inflammatory and analgesic (pain relief) action by inhibiting the accumulation of leukocytes (white blood cells) in the affected area or joints. This effect also helps to reduce symptoms such as pain, swelling, and stiffness.

MAXCEPROL 200MG CAPSULE is available in the form of tablets/capsules. You should take this medicine exactly as prescribed by your doctor. MAXCEPROL 200MG CAPSULE may cause side effects such as stomach pain, nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea, constipation, bloating, indigestion, dizziness, headache and skin rashes. These side effects are usually mild and temporary. However, if these side effects persist or worsen, inform your doctor immediately.

It is not recommended to take MAXCEPROL 200MG CAPSULE if you are allergic to Oxaceprol or any other ingredients present in it.

    Patients Concern

    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 of 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.
