Product introduction

Polmakem Capsule is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) that is used to treat osteoarthritis of knee and hip joints. It inhibits the production of certain enzymes involved in inflammation, resulting in reduced inflammation, pain, and stiffness in the joints, and improves the function of joints.

Polmakem Capsule should be taken with food to reduce the risk of an upset stomach. Take it in the dose and duration prescribed by your doctor. Also, continue taking this medicine for as long as your doctor prescribes it because if you stop taking the medicine abruptly, the symptoms may return.

Some common side effects of this medicine are headache, nausea, and upset stomach. These side effects are usually mild and go away on their own. However, if any of these symptoms get worse or bother you, consult with the doctor.
