How Pandrop MR Tablet works

PANDROP MR TABLET is a combination of a muscle relaxant (Chlorzoxazone) and two pain relieving medicines (Diclofenac and Paracetamol / Acetaminophen). The muscle relaxant works on the centres in the brain and spinal cord to relieve muscle stiffness or spasm, thereby improving movement of muscles. The pain relieving medicines work by blocking the release of certain chemical messengers in the brain that cause pain and inflammation (redness and swelling).

Q. What is Pandrop MR?
Pandrop MR is a combination of three medicines: Diclofenac, Paracetamol, and Chlorzoxazone. This medication helps in relieving muscle pain. Chlorzoxazone is a muscle relaxant which works by acting on the central nervous system. Diclofenac and Paracetamol work by lowering the chemical substance (prostaglandins) in the body that causes pain and inflammation.
Q. Is it safe to use Pandrop MR?
Pandrop MR is safe for most of the patients. However, in some patients it may cause common side effects like nausea, vomiting, heartburn, stomach pain, diarrhea, loss of appetite, dryness in the mouth, weakness, sleepiness and other uncommon or rare side effects. Inform your doctor as soon as possible if you experience any persistent problem due to the medication.
Q. Can I stop taking Pandrop MR when my pain is relieved?
Pandrop MR should be continued if advised for a specific time duration by your doctor. However, it can be discontinued if you are using it for short-term pain relief.
Q. Can the use of Pandrop MR cause nausea and vomiting?
Yes, the use of Pandrop MR can cause nausea and vomiting. In case, you experience nausea while taking this medicine, take it with milk, food or with antacids. 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 medicine without speaking to your doctor.
Q. Can the use of Pandrop MR cause dizziness?
