About Oxalgin-DP Tablet 15's

Oxalgin-DP Tablet 15's belongs to a class of medications known as a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) or pain killer. Oxalgin-DP Tablet 15's is widely useful for treating painful musculoskeletal joint conditions like osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and ankylosing spondylitis.

Oxalgin-DP Tablet 15's contains Diclofenac (analgesic) and Paracetamol (fever reducer/mild analgesic), effective against painful musculoskeletal pain, joint pain, and skeletal muscle spasms. Diclofenac works by blocking the action of a chemical messenger known as cyclo-oxygenase (COX), which causes pain and swelling at the injured or damaged tissue site. On the other hand, paracetamol acts as a mild analgesic (mild pain reducer) and antipyretic (fever reducer), which enhances the pain relief action of Diclofenac. It also helps relieve toothache, ear pain, backache and other musculoskeletal-related pain.

Oxalgin-DP Tablet 15's can be taken with or after the meal. To avoid stomach upset, Oxalgin-DP Tablet 15's can be taken with food or milk. It should be swallowed whole with a glass of water. Do not crush or chew the tablets. Do not take Oxalgin-DP Tablet 15's if your pain lasts more than ten days or your fever lasts more than three days. Do not take a double dose if you missed one dose. Like all medicines, Oxalgin-DP Tablet 15's may cause common side effects like stomach upset, dizziness, light-headedness, malaise, nausea, vomiting, liver dysfunction (hepatitis), pruritis (itchy skin), and rash, although not everybody gets them. Stop taking this medicine if you experience symptoms like the tightness of the chest, breathing difficulties, fever, skin rashes, increased heart rate, and or in case of any signs of hypersensitivity.

Do not take Oxalgin-DP Tablet 15's if you are allergic to painkillers like aspirin, paracetamol, naproxen, or Diclofenac. Patients with asthma, prolonged bleeding time, wheezing (whistling sound during breath), and blocked airways (bronchospasm) should avoid using Oxalgin-DP Tablet 15's. It is not recommended for use in children less than 14 years of age, people with liver disease, heart disease, or gastric ulcers/bleeding problems. Oxalgin-DP Tablet 15's may be associated with a small increase in the risk of heart attack (myocardial infarction). Pregnant women should not take it during their last trimester of pregnancy. Oxalgin-DP Tablet 15's is excreted in the breast milk, so the nursing mother should contact the doctor before its usage. Avoid consumption of alcohol as it may damage your liver and cause even more side effects on taking this drug. Consult your doctor if your pain, inflammation, and fever symptoms do not disappear even after ten days. If you are using topical form Oxalgin-DP Tablet 15's, you should avoid direct exposure to the sunlight as sunburn or photosensitivity might occur.
