Aldigesic Injection


Overview

Introduction

Aldigesic Injection is a combination medicine which helps in relieving muscular pain. It works by blocking the release of certain chemical messengers that cause pain, inflammation, and fever. It also relieves muscle stiffness or spasm and improves the muscle movement.

Aldigesic Injection is administered as an injection by a healthcare professional and should not be self administered. Depending on the severity of your underlying illness, your doctor will decide the precise dose. Inform your doctor if you are also taking other medications containing paracetamol to avoid an overdose. Please consult your doctor in case your pain or fever does not subside.

It may cause side effects like vomiting, difficulty sleeping, and constipation in some patients. Inform your doctor immediately if any rash or allergic reaction is observed while taking this medicine. It may also cause dizziness and sleepiness, so do not drive or do anything that requires mental focus until you know how this medicine affects you.

How Aldigesic Injection works

Aldigesic Injection is a combination of two pain relieving medicines (Aceclofenac and Paracetamol/Acetaminophen) and a muscle relaxant (Chlorzoxazone). The pain relieving medicines work by blocking the release of certain chemical messengers in the brain that cause pain and inflammation (redness and swelling). The muscle relaxant works on the centers in the brain and spinal cord to relieve muscle stiffness or spasm, thereby improving muscle movement.
