Benefits of Alcinac RB Capsule

In Pain relief

Alcinac RB 200mg/20mg Capsule is a combination medicine used for short-term relief of pain, inflammation, and swelling in conditions that affect joints and muscles. It can help relieve pain in conditions like rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. But, this pain-relieving action may damage the inner lining of the stomach. Therefore, this medicine also has an active ingredient called Rabeprazole, which reduces the acid secretion in our stomach, thereby reducing the damage caused by the painkillers.

Take it as it is prescribed to get the most benefit. Do not take more or for a longer duration than needed as that can be dangerous. In general, you should take the lowest dose that works, for the shortest possible time. This will help you to go about your daily activities more easily and have a better, more active, quality of life.

How Alcinac RB Capsule works

Alcinac RB 200mg/20mg Capsule is a combination of two medicines: Aceclofenac and Rabeprazole, which relieves pain. Aceclofenac is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) which works by blocking the release of certain chemical messengers that cause pain and inflammation (redness and swelling).
