About THIOSPAS A 8MG TABLET

THIOSPAS A 8MG 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).

THIOSPAS A 8MG 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 THIOSPAS A 8MG 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 THIOSPAS A 8MG TABLET do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if the side effects persist or worsen, please consult your doctor.

If you are allergic to THIOSPAS A 8MG TABLET or any other medicines, please tell your doctor. THIOSPAS A 8MG TABLET is not recommended for children below 18 years of age. Avoid taking THIOSPAS A 8MG TABLET if you are pregnant as it may cause harm to the foetus. THIOSPAS A 8MG TABLET is excreted in breast milk. Therefore, THIOSPAS A 8MG TABLET is contraindicated in breastfeeding women as it may cause adverse effects in the baby. If you have asthma, diabetes, high blood pressure, stomach ulcer, high cholesterol, chickenpox, porphyria (rare inherited disorder), systemic lupus erythematosus (an autoimmune disease), ulcerative colitis or Crohn’s disease (conditions causing swelling of the bowel, diarrhoea, bowel pain, vomiting and weight loss), galactose intolerance, Lapp lactase deficiency, glucose-galactose malabsorption, G-6-PD deficiency (a hereditary condition resulting in low red blood cell counts), fits, muscular hypotonia (decreased muscle tone), flaccid paresis (loose and floppy limbs), bleeding or blood clotting disorders, kidney, liver or heart diseases, inform your doctor before taking THIOSPAS A 8MG TABLET.
