ALMINOPROFEN

 

Description: Alminoprofen belongs to a class of painkillers called non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). It works by blocking the effect of chemicals called cyclo-oxygenase (COX) enzymes. These enzymes help to make other chemicals in the body, called prostaglandins. Some prostaglandins are produced at sites of injury or damage, and cause pain and inflammation. By blocking the effect of COX enzymes, fewer prostaglandins are produced, which eases pain and inflammation.

Relief of pain and inflammation associated with musculoskeletal and joint disorders.

Alminoprofen should not be given to patients with hypersensitivity to aspirin/NSAIDs, severe liver or kidney insufficiency, and active/previous history of peptic ulcer.

Drowsiness, headache, nausea, gastric pains, skin rashes and/or pruritus.

Give with caution in pregant/lactating women, elderly, and patients with infection, bleeding disorders, asthma, hypertension and impaired renal, hepatic or cardiac function.

If overdose is suspected, bring the victim to the hospital immediately.
