Asflam Tablet

Prescription Required

Introduction

Asflam Tablet is a medicine which helps in relieving muscle pain. It works by blocking the release of certain chemical messengers in the brain that cause pain and inflammation (redness and swelling). It also relaxes the muscles and provides relief from stiffness or spasm.

Your doctor will advise how much Asflam Tablet you need to take. It can be taken with or without food. You should take the medicine regularly while you do need it and try not to miss doses as it will become less effective.

Using this medicine may cause few side effects such as sleepiness, vomiting, stomach pain, nausea, and dryness in the mouth. If you experience any of such side effects that do not go away or get worse, you should let your doctor know. Your doctor may be able to suggest ways of preventing or reducing the side effects. In general, you should try to use the smallest amount necessary to control your symptoms. This will reduce the chances of getting any side effects.

The medicine is generally considered safe but is not suitable for everybody. Before you take it, you should tell your doctor to know if you have any kidney or liver problems. Also, tell your doctor of all the other medicines you are taking to make sure you are safe. It is best to avoid drinking alcohol while taking this medicine. Pregnant and breastfeeding mothers should consult their doctor before using the medicine.

They work by blocking the release of certain chemical messengers in the brain that cause pain and inflammation (redness and swelling). Serratiopeptidase is an enzyme whcih breaks down abnormal proteins at the site of inflammation, and promotes healing. Tizanidine is a muscle relaxant. It works on the centres in the brain and spinal cord to relieve muscle stiffness or spasm and improve movement of muscles.
