FAQs

Q. What is Phenace Plus?

Phenace Plus 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 Phenace Plus?

Phenace Plus 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 Phenace Plus when my pain is relieved?

Phenace Plus 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 Phenace Plus cause nausea and vomiting?

Yes, the use of Phenace Plus 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 Phenace Plus cause dizziness?

Yes, the use of Phenace Plus 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.

Q. Can the use of Phenace Plus cause damage to kidneys?

Yes, the long-term use of Phenace Plus can cause damage to the kidneys. Normal kidneys produce a chemical called prostaglandins that protect them from damage. Use of painkillers lowers the levels of prostaglandins in the body leading to kidney damage on long-term use. Use of painkillers is not recommended to patients with underlying kidney disease.

Q. Can I take a higher than the recommended dose of this medicine?

No, taking a higher than the recommended dose of Phenace Plus can increase the risks of side effects. If you are experiencing increased severity of pain or if the pain is not relieved by the recommended doses, please consult your doctor for re-evaluation.

Q. What are the recommended storage conditions for Phenace Plus?
