Patient Concerns

Frequently asked questions about Dupox Injection

Frequently asked questions about Piroxicam

Q. What is the difference between Dupox and diclofenac?
Both Dupox and diclofenac are pain killers. However, piroxicam is a non-selective COX (cyclooxygenase - an enzyme responsible for inflammation and pain) inhibitor whereas diclofenac has a bit more selectivity to a COX-2 enzyme. This selectivity of diclofenac is supposed to decrease the side effects as compared to Dupox.
Q. What is the difference between Dupox and naproxen?
Both Dupox and naproxen are pain killers. Both are non-selective COX (cyclooxygenase - an enzyme responsible for inflammation and pain). Research studies have shown both are equally effective. However, gastric side effects are lesser with naproxen as compared to Dupox.
Q. What is the difference between Dupox and meloxicam?
Both Dupox and meloxicam are pain killers. Both are non-selective COX (cyclooxygenase - an enzyme responsible for inflammation and pain). Research studies have shown both are equally effective. However, acute gastric side effects are lesser with meloxicam as compared to Dupox.
Q. What is the difference between Dupox and ketoprofen?
Both Dupox and ketoprofen are pain killers. Both are non-selective COX (cyclooxygenase -an enzyme responsible for inflammation and pain). Research studies have shown ketoprofen topical gel is better and effective as compared to Dupox. Ketoprofen gel also showed excellent tolerability.
Q. What is the difference between Dupox and tramadol?
Dupox is a COX (cyclooxygenase -an enzyme responsible for inflammation and pain) whereas Tramadol is a narcotic-like painkiller. Tramadol is a habit forming medicine.
Q. What is the difference between Dupox and nimesulide?
Both Dupox and nimesulide are pain killers. However, Dupox is a non-selective COX (cyclooxygenase -an enzyme responsible for inflammation and pain) inhibitor whereas nimesulide is selective to the COX-2 enzyme. This selectivity of nimesulide is supposed to decrease the side effects as compared to piroxicam. It should not be used in children below 12 years of age.
Usually, the platelet count does not dip in cases of chikungunya and painkillers like piroxicam can lead to the risk of increased bleeding tendency. So refrain from taking Dupox or any painkiller in the case of any fever with joint pain. Consult your doctor before starting Dupox.
No. Dupox and aspirin are not same. They belong to the same class of drugs known as COX (cyclooxygenase) inhibitors. They both are anti-inflammatory and analgesic.
Q. Can Dupox be used along with dexamethasone?
No. Dupox should not be used with dexamethasone. They both increase each other's toxicity. There is an increased risk of GI ulceration.
Q. Can Dupox be used with methocarbamol?
Yes. Methocarbamol can be used with Dupox as no serious side effects are known. Inform your doctor before starting any of the medication.

Inform your doctor if you are taking antihypertensive medications before starting Dupox.
Q. Can Dupox be used with Lisinopril?
No. Dupox should be avoided with lisinopril.

Yes. Dupox is known to cause skin reactions which can be very severe such as exfoliative dermatitis, Stevens-Johnson Syndrome (SJS), and toxic epidermal necrolysis (TEN), which can be fatal. These serious events may occur without warning. You should inform your doctor if you feel you have a mild rash and immediately discontinue the drug.
No. Dupox should not be taken in pregnancy. It causes premature closure of the ductus arteriosus which can lead to fetal heart failure and death of the baby.

Q. Can Dupox be used with diuretics?
No. Dupox should not be used with diuretics. Dupox reduces the natriuretic effect of furosemide and thiazides diuretics in some patients. This response has been attributed to inhibition of renal prostaglandin synthesis.
Q. Can Dupox be used with lithium?
No. Dupox should not be used with lithium. Dupox leads to an elevation of plasma lithium levels and a reduction in renal lithium clearance. This is because of inhibition of renal prostaglandin synthesis by the NSAID. Consult and inform your doctor before starting this medication.
Q. Can Dupox be used with warfarin?
No. Dupox should be avoided with warfarin as they both lead to increase in bleeding tendencies. Inform your doctor if you are taking any of the medications. If given together then the therapy should be monitored closely.
