Frequently asked questions for Etodolac + Paracetamol

Etodolac + Paracetamol

Q. Will Etodolac+Paracetamol be more effective if taken in higher doses?

The use of Etodolac+Paracetamol is considered to be harmful for patients with known allergy to any of the component or excipients of this medicine.
