About Spineflex-8 Tablet

Spineflex-8 Tablet is a combination medication used to reduce and relieve pain due to muscle spasms (painful muscular contractions) associated with degenerative vertebral disorders, vertebral static problems, dorsal pain, low back pain, and torticollis (neck muscle contractions).

Spineflex-8 Tablet is a combination of two drugs: Thiocolchicoside (muscle relaxant) and Aceclofenac (a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug). Thiocolchicoside is a muscle relaxant that works on the centres of spinal cord and brain. This helps relieve muscle stiffness and improves muscle movements, thereby relieves pain due to muscle spasms. Aceclofenac is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (pain killer) that works by blocking the action of cyclo-oxygenase (COX) enzyme in the body involved in the production of certain chemical substances such as prostaglandins that cause pain and swelling.

Take Spineflex-8 Tablet with or after food as advised by your doctor and swallow whole with a glass of water. Do not crush, chew or break it. Your doctor will advise you how often you take your tablets based on your medical condition. You may experience diarrhoea, dizziness, nausea, vomiting, stomach pain, or increased liver enzymes in the blood in some cases. Most of these side effects of Spineflex-8 Tablet do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if the side effects persist or worsen, please consult your doctor.

Avoid taking Spineflex-8 Tablet if you are pregnant as it may cause harm to the foetus. Spineflex-8 Tablet is excreted in breast milk. Therefore, Spineflex-8 Tablet is contraindicated in breastfeeding women as it may cause adverse effects in the baby.

Patients Concern

Disease/Condition Glossary

Pain is a symptom triggered by the nervous system, causing uncomfortable sensations in the body. Muscle spasm is the sudden involuntary contractions of the muscle, which can be painful and uncomfortable. When the nerve impulses that control the muscle movements are damaged or interrupted, it could lead to muscle spasms. Symptoms include muscle tightness, joint stiffness, unusual posture, difficulty in moving, pain in affected muscles and joints. Fatigue (weakness), stress, extreme heat or cold, infection and tight clothing can trigger muscle spasms. Muscle relaxants and exercise can treat muscle spasms. Muscle relaxants sedate the muscle and help in inhibiting painful contractions. Whereas, exercise helps in muscle stretching to be less likely to spasm, tear and sprain.
