Q. Is it safe to use Chlorzoxazone+Diclofenac+Paracetamol?

Chlorzoxazone+Diclofenac+Paracetamol 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 Chlorzoxazone+Diclofenac+Paracetamol when my pain is relieved?

Chlorzoxazone+Diclofenac+Paracetamol 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 Chlorzoxazone+Diclofenac+Paracetamol cause nausea and vomiting?

Yes, the use of Chlorzoxazone+Diclofenac+Paracetamol 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.
