How Meganac Tablet works

Meganac Tablet is a combination of three medicines: Aceclofenac, Paracetamol/Acetaminophen and Trypsin Chymotrypsin, which relieves pain. Aceclofenac is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) and Paracetamol/Acetaminophen is an antipyretic (fever reducer). They work by blocking the release of certain chemical messengers in the brain that cause pain and fever. Trypsin Chymotrypsin is a combination of enzymes which break down proteins into smaller fragments, thereby making them available for absorption into the blood. Once absorbed, they increase blood supply in the affected area and reduce swelling.

User Feedback


FAQs

Q. What is Meganac?

Meganac is a combination of four medicines: Aceclofenac, Paracetamol, Trypsin and Chymotrypsin. This medicine helps in decreasing pain and swelling. It lowers the levels of chemical substances in the body that causes pain and swelling.

Q. Can I get addicted to Meganac?

No, there is no report of any patient getting addicted to Meganac.

Q. Can I stop taking Meganac when my pain is relieved?

Meganac is usually used for short term and can be discontinued when your pain is relieved. However, Meganac should be continued if your doctor has advised you to do so.

Q. Can the use of Meganac cause dizziness?

Yes, the use of Meganac 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. Can the use of Meganac cause damage to kidneys?

Yes, long-term use of Meganac 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 due to long-term use. Use of painkillers is not recommended to patients with underlying kidney disease.

Q. Can the use of Meganac cause damage to liver?

Meganac contains Paracetamol. This medicine is 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.

Q. How long will Meganac take to act?

It may take about an hour to see the initial benefit of pain relief after taking Meganac.

Q. What if I forget to take Meganac?

If you forget to take the scheduled dose of Meganac and it is almost time for your next dose, skip the dose you missed and take your next dose at the scheduled time. Otherwise, take it as soon as you remember, and then go back to taking your medicine as you would normally. Do not take a double dose to make up for the dose you missed because this may increase the risk of unwanted side effect. If you are not sure what to do, consult your doctor about how to manage a situation like this.

Q. Will a higher than the recommended dose of Meganac be more effective?

No, taking a higher than the recommended dose may not be more effective, rather it may increase the chances of having some serious side effects and toxicity. If you experience increased severity of your symptoms, that are not relieved by the recommended doses, please consult your doctor for re-evaluation.

Q. Are there any specific contraindications associated with the use of Meganac?

The use of Meganac is considered to be harmful for patients with known allergy to any of the component or excipients of this medicine.
