How Thiodic Capsule works

Thiodic 8 mg/50 mg Capsule is a combination of two medicines: Thiocolchicoside and Diclofenac, which relieves muscle pain. Thiocolchicoside is a muscle relaxant. It works on the centers in the brain and spinal cord to relieve muscle stiffness or spasm and improve movement of muscles.

Its use should also be avoided in a patient with a history of heart failure, high blood pressure, and liver or kidney disease.

Q. Can I stop taking Thiodic when my pain is relieved?

Q. Can the use of Thiodic cause dizziness?

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