FAQs

Q. Will Etodenz-XT be more effective if taken in higher doses?

No, taking more of this medicine will not make it more effective, rather it can lead to increased side effects. If the symptoms are getting severe, please consult the doctor for re-evaluation.

Q. Can the use of Etodenz-XT cause dizziness?

Yes, the use of Etodenz-XT 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 Etodenz-XT?

The use of Etodenz-XT is considered to be harmful for patients with known allergy to any of the component or excipients of this medicine. It should also be avoided in patients with known allergy to other painkillers.
