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

The use of Etogen-MR 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 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 the use of Etogen-MR cause damage to kidneys?

Yes, the long-term use of Etogen-MR can cause damage to the kidneys. Normal kidneys produce a chemical called prostaglandins that protects them from damage.
