About Rhucoxia-P Tablet

Rhucoxia-P Tablet belongs to a group of medicines called Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs) used to relieve pain and inflammation in the conditions such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, gouty arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, tooth pain, headache, nerve pain, muscular pain, back pain, fever, cold, and flu. Pain is a symptom triggered by the nervous system, causing uncomfortable sensations in the body.

Rhucoxia-P Tablet is a combination of two drugs, namely: Etoricoxib and Paracetamol. Rhucoxia-P Tablet works by blocking the effect of a chemical messenger known as cyclo-oxygenase (COX) enzyme that makes another chemical, prostaglandin, which causes pain and inflammation. By blocking the effect of COX enzymes, fewer prostaglandins are produced. This helps in reducing mild to moderate pain and inflammation at the injured or damaged site.

You are advised to take Rhucoxia-P Tablet for as long as your doctor has prescribed it for you, depending on your medical condition. In some cases, you may experience certain common side effects, such as flatulence, constipation, nausea, diarrhoea, and swelling of hands and feet. Most of these side effects do not require medical attention and will resolve gradually over time. However, you are advised to talk to your doctor if you experience these side effects persistently.
 
Consult your doctor if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Rhucoxia-P Tablet may cause sleepiness and dizziness, so drive with caution. Rhucoxia-P Tablet should not be given to children as safety and efficacy have not been established. Avoid consuming alcohol as it could lead to increased dizziness; it might also increase stomach bleeding risk. Keep your doctor informed about your health condition and medicines to rule out any side effects.

Disease/Condition Glossary

Pain: Pain is a symptom triggered by the nervous system, causing uncomfortable sensations in the body. Pain may be dull or sharp; it might be constant or may come and go. The tolerance level of pain might vary from person to person. Pain can be generalized (overall body aches) or localized (affecting a specific area of the body). The common causes of pain include headache, muscle strain, cramps, cuts, bone fractures, and arthritis.

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.

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. 

Gouty arthritis: It is caused due to deposits of excess uric acid crystals in the joints, which leads to pain and inflammation in the joints. Symptoms include pain, swelling, and redness in the joints, mostly the big toe.
