How Sezox Tablet works

Sezox Tablet is a combination of two pain relievers (Ibuprofen, Paracetamol/Acetaminophen) and a muscle relaxant (Chlorzoxazone).

Q. What is Sezox?

Q. Can the Sezox be stopped when pain is relieved?

Sezox is usually used for short term and can be discontinued when the pain is relieved. However, Sezox should be continued if the doctor has advised to do so.

Q. Can the use of Sezox cause nausea and vomiting?

Yes, the use of Sezox 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 medicine without speaking to a doctor.

Q. Can the use of Sezox cause dizziness?

Yes, the use of Sezox 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 Sezox?

The use of Sezox is considered to be harmful for patients with known allergy to painkiller (NSAIDS) or any of the components or excipients of this medicine. The use of this medicine should preferably be avoided in patients with a history of stomach ulcer or in patients with active or recurrent stomach ulcer / bleeding. It should also be avoided in patients with history of heart failure, high blood pressure, and liver or kidney disease.

Q. Can the Sezox be used with Vitamin B-complex?

Yes, Sezox can be taken with Vitamin B-complex preparations. While Sezox helps to relieve pain, Vitamin B-complex can help to correct the vitamin deficiency that might be causing your symptoms.

Q. Can Sezox cause addiction?

No, there is no report of any patient getting addicted to Sezox.

Q. Can the use of Sezox cause damage to kidneys?

Yes, the long-term use of Sezox 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 to patients with underlying kidney disease.

Q. Will Sezox 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.
