Introduction

Orthobid Gel is a pain relieving medicine. It is used to relieve pain of the muscle, soft tissue injuries, and acute strains and sprains. It also used to treat inflammation and other painful conditions of the bone or muscle.

Orthobid Gel is only meant for external use and should be used strictly as advised by your doctor. A thin layer of the medicine should be rubbed into the affected areas with clean and dry hands. Avoid getting in contact with your eyes, nose, or mouth and avoid applying it on wounded or damaged skin. In case of accidental contact with these areas, you should rinse it with cold water.

It is usually safe with little or no side effects. However, it may cause redness, tingling, prickling, numbness, rash, and itching of the skin at the site of application in some people. These are usually temporary and resolve with time. If they do not get better with time or worsen, you should let your doctor know. Your doctor may be able to suggest ways of preventing or reducing the symptoms.

Before using the medicine, it is important to tell your doctor if you are using or have recently used any other medicines for the same condition or other diseases. To make sure the medicine is safe, pregnant and breastfeeding women should consult their doctor before using the medicine.
