Hello and thankyou for approaching DoctorSpring with your query.

You have consumed a higher dose of aceclofenac, but you DO NOT need to worry as this dose will not be toxic to you.

My advise to you would be DO NOT take another tablet of aceclofenac today. Continue with your medication tomorrow.

However if you feel any of the below symptoms , please go to the medical center right away
1) Headache
4)Pain in your abdomen.

Please feel free to follow up with any further query.

Patient replied :

Thank you Doctor for your kind reply !

I have the following follow up question !

1) can I have this tablet when ever I get sprains/muscle catch or pull, while doing my yoga ?
if so what is the right dosage per day and for how many days I should take this tablet ?

Hello, thankyou for your appreciation.

Yes, Aceclofenac-100 mg can be used along with a muscle relaxant Chlorzoxazone-500 mg for muscle pulls/spasms. It is available as a combination drug along with paracetamol 500mg. The dose is one tablet, twice a day, after a meal, for 3 days.

However I would suggest that you should NOT take analgesics on a frequent basis. If you can avoid these tablets it is better avoided unless really required. Make sure you do not have any kidney function or liver function problems if using these drugs. In case of mild pain you can take the OTC drug Ibuprofen 200 mg twice daily after a meal for 3 days.

Warm water compresses or warm water baths are very helpful in case of muscle pulls/ spasms as they relax the muscle.
My advise would be to first try warm water compresses and or diclofenac gel local application.Avoid analgesics/ painkiller tablets unless really required. As you know anything in excess is not good for our body.
I hope this has helped. Take care.

Patient replied :

The drug combination I mentioned is available on prescription. The brand name is Dolowin-MR, which is a muscle relaxant.
Tab Myospaz Forte is also a muscle relaxant which has diclofenac instead of aceclofenac.

In case you are having acidity with Brufen you can take Capsule Omez 20 mg half an hour before a meal, once a day for 5 days along with the analgesic tablets.

I hope this has helped.

Patient replied :

Thank you Doctor for your kind reply !
