FAQs

Q. What is Buflex MR?

Q. Can the Buflex MR be stopped when pain is relieved?

Buflex MR is usually used for short term and can be discontinued when the pain is relieved. However, Buflex MR should be continued if the doctor has advised to do so.

Q. Can the use of Buflex MR cause nausea and vomiting?

Yes, the use of Buflex MR can cause nausea and vomiting. Taking it with milk, food or with antacids can prevent nausea. Avoid taking fatty or fried foods along with this medication. In case of vomiting, drink plenty of water or other fluids by taking small frequent sips. Talk to your doctor if vomiting persists and you notice signs of dehydration, like dark colored and strong-smelling urine and a low frequency of urination. Do not take any other medicine without speaking to a doctor.

Q. Can the use of Buflex MR cause dizziness?

Yes, the use of Buflex MR can cause dizziness (feeling faint, weak, unsteady or lightheaded) in some patients. If you feel dizzy or lightheaded it is better to rest for some time and resume once you feel better.

Q. Are there any specific contraindications associated with the use of Buflex MR?

The use of Buflex MR is considered to be harmful for patients with known allergy to painkiller (NSAIDS) or any of the components or excipients of this medicine. The use of this medicine should preferably be avoided in patients with a history of stomach ulcer or in patients with active or recurrent stomach ulcer / bleeding. It should also be avoided in patients with history of heart failure, high blood pressure, and liver or kidney disease.

Q. Can the Buflex MR be used with Vitamin B-complex?

Yes, Buflex MR can be taken with Vitamin B-complex preparations. While Buflex MR helps to relieve pain, Vitamin B-complex can help to correct the vitamin deficiency that might be causing your symptoms.
