Product introduction

Aldigesic-Rab Capsule SR is a combination of two medicines. It is used to reduce pain and inflammation in conditions like rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, and osteoarthritis. It may also be used to relieve muscle pain, back pain, toothache, or pain in the ear and throat.

Aldigesic-Rab Capsule SR can be taken with or without food. The dose will depend on what you are taking it for and how well it helps your symptoms. You should take it as advised by your doctor. Do not take more or use it for a longer duration than recommended by the doctor.

The most common side effects of this medicine include nausea, flatulence, indigestion, diarrhea, and constipation. If any of these side effects bother you or get worse, you should speak to your doctor. Your doctor may be able to suggest ways of preventing or reducing the side effects.

Before taking it, you should let your doctor know if you have a history of ulcer or bleeding in your stomach, high blood pressure, or have any trouble with your heart, kidneys, or liver. Let your doctor also know about all the other medicines you are taking because they may affect, or be affected by, this medicine.

Pregnant or breastfeeding women should consult their doctor before starting treatment. You should also avoid drinking alcohol while you are taking this medicine, as alcohol can cause excessive drowsiness.

Uses of Aldigesic-Rab Capsule SR

Benefits of Aldigesic-Rab Capsule SR

In Pain relief

Aldigesic-Rab Capsule SR 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.

Most side effects do not require any medical attention and disappear as your body adjusts to the medicine. Consult your doctor if they persist or if you’re worried about them

How to use Aldigesic-Rab Capsule SR

How Aldigesic-Rab Capsule SR works

Aldigesic-Rab Capsule SR 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). Rabeprazole is a proton-pump inhibitor which prevents damage to the stomach lining caused by Aceclofenac.
