DICLOFENAC+MENTHOL+METHYL SALICYLATE belongs to a class of NSAID’S (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medicines) and is a combination of three medicines which contains Diclofenac, Methyl salicylate and Menthol. It is primarily used to relieve joint pain from arthritis. Arthritis is the swelling and tenderness (pain on touching) of one or more joints characterized by joint pain and stiffness, which typically worsen with age.

Diclofenac is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) that works by blocking the release of certain chemical messengers in the brain which are responsible for causing pain and symptoms of inflammation such as redness and swelling. Methyl salicylate and Menthol are topical analgesics (applied directly to relieve pain). They work initially by cooling the skin followed by warming it up. This action helps in improving blood circulation and provides relief from the pain.

DICLOFENAC+MENTHOL+METHYL SALICYLATE is for external use only

Patient should not use this medicine without consulting the doctor. Even though medicines used topically (directly) on the skin are not normally affected by any other medicines, one should inform the doctor if patient is taking any other medicine. Also, inform the doctor if patient had an allergic reaction to diclofenac or any other medicines in the past, ever had signs of any lung, liver, kidney-related diseases/disorders, muscle weakness (myasthenia gravis), sleeping disorder or difficulty in sleeping sleep apnea).

Consult your doctor or pharmacist about the risks and advantages of using this medication. Use this drug at the lowest effective dose for the shortest time possible to minimize the risk of side effects. Do not raise your dose, use it more frequently than suggested, or apply it to any part that your doctor has not prescribed.

Avoid getting the medicine in your eyes, nose, or mouth. If the medication gets into such areas, rinse it out with plenty of water. If the irritation persists, see your doctor pretty quickly.

It may take up to 2 weeks of regular use of this medicine for certain illnesses such as arthritis before you realize the potential effect.

If you're taking this medication "as required" (not on a regular basis), please note that pain relievers function best when taken as soon as the first signals of pain appear. If you wait until the pain becomes unbearable, the medication may not be as effective.

If your discomfort persists or worsens, contact your doctor.
