FAQs

Q. What is P K?

P K is a combination of two medicines: Ibuprofen and Paracetamol. This medication helps in relieving pain and inflammation. It works by lowering the levels of certain chemical substances in the body that cause pain and inflammation.

Q. Is it safe to use P K?

P K is safe for most of the patients. However, in some patients, it may cause some unwanted common side effects like nausea, vomiting, stomach pain, heartburn, diarrhea, and other uncommon and rare side effects. Inform your doctor if you experience any persistent problem due to the medication.

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

P K should be continued as advised by your doctor, if you are using the medicine for a condition associated with long-term pain. It can be discontinued if you are using it for short-term pain relief.

Q. Can the use of P K cause nausea and vomiting?

Yes, the use of P K can cause nausea and vomiting. Taking it with milk, food or with antacids can prevent nausea. Avoid taking fatty or fried foods along with this medication. In case of vomiting, drink plenty of water or other fluids by taking small frequent sips. Talk to your doctor if vomiting persists and you notice signs of dehydration, like dark colored and strong-smelling urine and a low frequency of urination. Do not take any other medicines without speaking to your doctor.

Q. Can the use of P K cause dizziness?

Yes, the use of P K can cause dizziness (feeling faint, weak, unsteady or lightheaded) in some patients. If you feel dizzy or lightheaded, it is better to rest for sometime and resume once you feel better. Do not drive or use any machines.

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

The use of P K is considered to be harmful for patients with known allergy to any of the components or excipients of this medicine or in patients with known allergy to other painkillers (NSAIDs). 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. It should also be avoided in patients with the history of heart failure, high blood pressure, and liver or kidney disease.
