User Feedback


FAQs

Q. Will Setolac-P be more effective if taken in higher doses?

No, taking more of this medicine will not make it more effective, rather it can lead to increased side effects. If the symptoms are getting severe, please consult the doctor for re-evaluation.

Q. Can the use of Setolac-P cause dizziness?

Yes, the use of Setolac-P can cause dizziness (feeling faint, weak, unsteady or lightheaded) in some patients. If you feel dizzy or lightheaded, it is better to rest for some time and resume once you feel better.

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

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

Q. Can the use of Setolac-P cause damage to kidneys?

Yes, the long-term use of Setolac-P can cause damage to the kidneys. Normal kidneys produce a chemical called prostaglandins that protects 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 for patients with underlying kidney disease.

Q. Can the use of Setolac-P cause damage to liver?

Setolac-P contains Paracetamol. These medicines are known to cause harm to the liver, especially in the doses above the recommended level. Also, avoid drinking alcohol while taking this medicine, as it may further increase your risk of liver damage. Use of this medicine should preferably be avoided in patients with the underlying liver disease. Contact your doctor immediately if you notice any early signs and symptoms of liver damage. These symptoms may include fever, rash, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, fatigue, stomach pain, dark urine, yellow skin or eyes and abnormal liver enzymes.
