Overview

Introduction

Nimodex Tablet is a combination medicine which helps in relieving pain. It works by blocking the release of certain chemical messengers that cause pain, inflammation, and fever. It also blocks the transmission of pain signals to the brain to lower pain perception.

Nimodex Tablet should be taken in the dose and duration advised by your doctor. Depending on the severity of your underlying illness, your doctor will decide the precise dose. Inform your doctor if you are also taking other medications containing paracetamol to avoid an overdose.

It may cause side effects like vomiting, nausea, diarrhea, and dizziness in some patients. Inform your doctor immediately if any rash or allergic reaction is observed while taking this medicine. It should be used with caution in patients who are alcoholic or have liver or kidney disease.

How Nimodex Tablet works

Nimodex Tablet is a combination of three medicines: Nimesulide, Paracetamol/Acetaminophen and Dextropropoxyphene which relieve pain and relax the muscles. Nimesulide is a non-steroidal antiinflammatory 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. Dextropropoxyphene is a opioid analgesic (pain reliever). It works by decreasing the perception of pain by blocking the transmission of pain signals to the brain.
