Wirox Injection is a pain relieving medicine. It is used in the treatment of moderate to severe pain. It helps to relieve pain and swelling of various conditions related to joints and muscles. It is usually given in cases where oral administration is unsuitable.

Wirox Injection is generally administered by a healthcare professional. You should not self-administer this medicine at home. The dose and duration will depend on what you are taking it for and how well it helps your symptoms. You should keep receiving the medicine until the doctor says it is okay to stop using the medicine.

The most common side effects of this medicine include injection site reactions (such as pain, redness, and swelling), vomiting, stomach pain, indigestion, diarrhea, headache, and dizziness. If any of these side effects persist or get worse, you should let your doctor know. Your doctor may be able to suggest ways of preventing or reducing the symptoms.

Before using it, you should let your doctor know if you have a history of stomach ulcers, heart diseases, high blood pressure, and liver or kidney disease. Let your doctor also know about all the other medicines you are taking because they may affect, or be affected by, this medicine.

This medicine is not recommended for pregnant or breastfeeding women. It is very important that pregnant and breastfeeding mothers consult with their doctors before using the medicine.
