Description
Abinac-P Tablet is a combination of Diclofenac and Paracetamol. It is used to reduce pain due to various conditions such as headache, toothache, backache, menstrual pain, sprains, and strains. Abinac-P Tablet also provides effective relief from pain, stiffness, and swelling due to ankylosing spondylitis (pain due to fusing of bones in the spine), osteoarthritis (pain on movement due to wearing of the protective covering at the ends of the bones) and rheumatoid arthritis (a type of arthritis where the body's immunity attacks the small joints and damages it). This medicine blocks the release of a chemical that causes pain and swelling, thus relieving these symptoms. Abinac-P Tablet causes side effects like nausea, vomiting, heartburn, stomach pain, loss of appetite, and diarrhoea. Avoid this medicine if you are allergic to it. In some patients, this medicine may cause dizziness and drowsiness. Therefore, avoid driving or operating machines if you feel drowsy or dizzy after taking this medicine. Abinac-P Tablet can be taken with food, milk, or an antacid (that your doctor may prescribe) to avoid stomach irritation. For the ease of remembering, take it at around the same time every day. Dan P Tablet relieves pain and swelling due to arthritic conditions but does not cure it. Do not self-medicate or use it beyond the prescribed duration. Abinac-P Tablet has to be used with caution if you have a history of stomach or intestinal bleeding, heart problems, asthma, and severe liver and kidney problems. Inform your doctor if you have a history of medical conditions and any medications that you may be taking. This medicine may affect the development of your foetus.
