FAQs

Q. Can the use of Etofit P cause dizziness?

Yes, the use of Etofit P 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 Etofit P?

The use of Etofit P 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. 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.
