BRAND NAME :  Arthrotec
CHEMICAL CONTENTS:  Diclofenac/misoprotol

Brand Name

Arthrotec

Arthrotec Uses:

Arthrotec is designed to relieve the symptoms of arthritis in people who are also prone to ulcers. It contains diclofenac, a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) for control of the inflammation, swelling, stiffness, and joint pain associated with rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. However, since NSAIDs can cause stomach ulcers in susceptible people, Arthrotec also contains misoprostol, a synthetic prostaglandin that serves to reduce the production of stomach acid, protect the stomach lining, and thus prevent ulcers.

Arthrotec Dosage:

Adults : Osteoarthritis: the recommended dose is 50 mg 3 times daily. Rheumatoid Arthritis: the recommended dose is 50 mg 3 or 4 times daily. If you can not tolerate the recommended dosage, your doctor can prescribe a dose of 50 or 75 mg twice daily. However, such lower dosages are less effective at preventing ulcers. Your doctor may prescribe misoprostol ( Cytotec ) in addition to Arthrotec for better ulcer protection.

Arthrotec Contraindications :

Remember that it is essential to avoid Arthrotec during pregnancy. You should also avoid this medication if you've ever had an allergic reaction to either of its components (diclofenac and misoprostol). Avoid it, too, if you've had a reaction to any other prostaglandin medication, or to any NSAID, including Aspirin . Make sure the doctor is aware of any drug reactions you've experienced.

Arthrotec Side Effects:

More common side effects of Arthrotec may include : Abdominal pain, acid indigestion, diarrhea, gas, nausea

Arthrotec Overdose:

Symptoms of Arthrotec overdose may include : Abdominal pain, confusion, diarrhea, difficulty breathing, digestive discomfort, drowsiness, fever, lack of muscle tone, low blood pressure, tremors, seizures, slow heartbeat, throbbing heartbeat, vomiting

Arthrotec Missed dose:

If you are following a regular schedule, take the dose of Arthrotec as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for the next one, skip the dose you missed and go back to your regular schedule. Do not take 2 doses at once.

Arthrotec Storage:

Store Arthrotec at room temperature in a dry place.
