About BACLOFEN+GABAPENTIN+LIDOCAINE

BACLOFEN+GABAPENTIN+LIDOCAINE is a combination medicine used to treat neuropathic pain. Neuropathic pain is a chronic, progressive nerve condition in which the neurological system is injured or malfunctioning, resulting in nerve pain. Amputation of limbs, diabetic neuropathy (nerve damage caused by high blood sugar levels), alcoholism (abundant alcohol consumption), and chemotherapy can all cause neuropathic pain.

BACLOFEN+GABAPENTIN+LIDOCAINE is a combination of three medications, namely: Baclofen, Gabapentin, and Lidocaine. Baclofen is a skeletal muscle relaxant that relaxes muscles to relieve pain and discomfort. Gabapentin helps to relieve nerve pain by binding to a specific location on voltage-gated calcium channels. Lidocaine alleviates pain by blocking pain signals from nerves to the brain. Thereby, BACLOFEN+GABAPENTIN+LIDOCAINE aids in the relief of neuropathic pain.

BACLOFEN+GABAPENTIN+LIDOCAINE is only for external use. Depending on your medical condition, you should use BACLOFEN+GABAPENTIN+LIDOCAINE for as long as your doctor has prescribed it for you. Certain common side effects, such as itching, irritation, redness, and a burning sensation at the application site, may occur in some cases. The majority of these side effects do not necessitate medical attention and will subside gradually over time. However, if you are experiencing these side effects regularly, you should consult your doctor.

Do not use BACLOFEN+GABAPENTIN+LIDOCAINE without doctor advice if you had a skin reaction or irritation to any medicine. Consult your doctor before using BACLOFEN+GABAPENTIN+LIDOCAINE if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Keep your doctor informed about your health condition and all the medicines to rule out any side effects. Limited information is available regarding the usage of BACLOFEN+GABAPENTIN+LIDOCAINE in children, so please consult a doctor if you have any concerns. Do not wrap or cover the treated area with a bandage unless otherwise directed by your doctor. BACLOFEN+GABAPENTIN+LIDOCAINE should not be used in higher doses or on larger areas of skin for a longer period of time because it may cause side effects.
