How Edoclof-Max Tablet works

Edoclof-Max Tablet is a combination of a muscle relaxant (Thiocolchicoside) and two pain relievers (Aceclofenac, Paracetamol / Acetaminophen). The muscle relaxant works on the centers in the brain and spinal cord to relieve muscle stiffness or spasm and improve movement of muscles. The pain relievers work by blocking the release of certain chemical messengers in the brain that cause pain and inflammation (redness and swelling).

FAQs

Q. Can the use of Edoclof-Max be stopped when my pain is relieved?
Edoclof-Max is usually used for short term and can be discontinued when the pain is relieved. However, Edoclof-Max should be continued if advised by the doctor.
Q. Are there any specific contraindications associated with the use of Edoclof-Max?
The use of Edoclof-Max is considered to be harmful for patients with known allergy to painkillers 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 ulcers or in patients with active, recurrent stomach ulcer/bleeding. It should also be avoided in patients with a history of heart failure, high blood pressure, and liver or kidney disease.
Q. Can Edoclof-Max be taken with vitamin B-complex?
Yes, Edoclof-Max can be taken with vitamin B-complex preparations. While Edoclof-Max helps to relieve pain, vitamin B-complex can help to correct the vitamin deficiency that might be causing your symptoms.
Q. Can the use of Edoclof-Max cause damage to kidneys?
Yes, the long-term use of Edoclof-Max can cause damage to the kidneys. Normal kidneys produce a chemical called prostaglandins that protects them from damage. Use of painkillers lowers the levels of prostaglandins in the body leading to kidney damage on long-term use. Use of painkillers is not recommended to patients with underlying kidney disease.

Edoclof-Max contains Paracetamol. These medicines are known to cause harm to the liver especially in the doses above the recommended level. Also, avoid drinking alcohol while taking this medicine, as it may further increase your risk of liver damage. Use of this medicine should preferably be avoided in patients with underlying liver disease. Contact your doctor immediately if you notice any early signs and symptoms of liver damage. These symptoms may include fever, rash, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, fatigue, stomach pain, dark urine, yellow skin or eyes and abnormal liver enzymes.
