ACECLOFENAC-100MG + PARACETAMOL-500MG
OACEP TABLET belongs to a group of medicines known as 'non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs' (NSAID). It is composed of aceclofenac and paracetamol primarily used to reduce pain and inflammation. The pain is an unpleasant sensory and emotional experience associated with actual or potential tissue damage. When you do something that hurts your body, your brain triggers the pain response. Inflammation is a localized physical condition in which part of the body becomes reddened, swollen, hot and often painful, especially as a reaction to injury or infection.
OACEP TABLET is composed of two medicines: Aceclofenac (pain reducer) and Paracetamol (fever reducer). OACEP TABLET helps in relieving pain from conditions like headache, mild migraine, muscle pain, dental pain, rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, osteoarthritis and painful menses (periods). Aceclofenac works by inhibiting the effect of chemical messengers like prostaglandins (responsible for producing pain and inflammation). Paracetamol has both analgesic and antipyretic (fever reducer) properties which decreases mild pain and possibly fever.
OACEP TABLET should be swallowed whole with liquid, preferably after meals as it helps to prevent any potential gastric irritation the drug might cause when taken empty stomach. OACEP TABLET is generally safe to consume. Some people may experience dizziness, nausea (feeling sick), digestion problems (constipation, flatulence, diarrhoea) and skin reactions (like rashes, hives). Most of the side effects of OACEP TABLET do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if the side effects are persistent, reach out to your doctor.
Taking more than the daily prescribed dose of OACEP TABLET may cause liver damage or allergic reactions like swelling of the mouth, face, throat, difficulty in breathing, skin rash or itching. Gastrointestinal bleeding, ulcer formation may be observed with the use of OACEP TABLET, so the doctor may prescribe you the lowest dose available.
