Etrik Mr Tablet Description

Etrik MR tablet is used to relieve pain, swelling & inflammatory conditions affecting the muscle or surrounding joints. It contains etoricoxib and thiocolchicoside as active ingredients. This medicin

works by blocking the inflammatory effects of the chemicals and also blocks the signal transmission in the brain and spinal cord and relaxes the contracted muscles. Thiocolchicoside acts as a muscle relaxant whereas etoricoxib is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medicine (NSAIDs ). Etrik MR tablet should be taken as directed by the doctor and in doses and duration as prescribed. You can take this with or without food. But it will be better if you take it with meals to avoid an upset stomach.
