Description
Kondro Acute Tablet is a combination of Glucosamine and Diacerein. It is used orally in the treatment of osteoarthritis (OA). Osteoarthritis is a joint disease in which the two ends of the joints come together due to the breakdown of a protective covering (cartilage). Due to the absence of this protective covering, the joints rub against each other, leading to pain and stiffness. Kondro Acute Tablet helps your body to rebuild cartilage and replenish fluid around the joints (synovial fluid). It mainly helps by preventing the breakdown of cartilage and thereby improves the symptoms of osteoarthritis. Kondro Acute Tablet relieves pain and swelling due to osteoarthritis but does not cure it. The side effects of Kondro Acute Tablet are very rare. However, you may experience heartburn, nausea, stomach pain, urine discolouration, etc. Inform your doctor at the earliest if you experience any side effects and avoid taking this medicine if you are allergic to it. Take Kondro Acute Tablet with food for better absorption and to prevent an upset stomach. For the ease of remembering, take it at around the same time every day. Your doctor will decide the dose and duration of this medicine based on the severity of your joint condition. This medicine is slow-acting and is used as a long-term treatment option, alone or in combination to treat joint pains. Avoid self-medicating with this medicine and do not stop the medication on your own. If there is a history of diabetes or hyperlipidemia, you should maintain caution during the entire treatment course with Kondro Acute Tablet. Let your doctor know if you have any medical condition or disease. Inform your doctor if you are pregnant, planning a pregnancy or are breastfeeding.
