Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

^

Q: Is the Flexon Tablet addictive?

A: No, Flexon medicine is not addictive but avoid giving the medicine if anyone else has the same condition as you.

Q: What are COX inhibitors? Is Flexon Tablet a COX inhibitor?

A: COX or cyclooxygenase inhibitors blocks cyclooxygenase which secretes substances in injury or illness that promote pain and inflammation. There are 2 forms of the enzyme called COX-1 and COX-2. While some medicines selectively inhibit COX-1 (aspirin, indomethacin) or COX-2 (etoricoxib, valdecoxib), Flexon Tablet inhibits both enzymes. It increases the intensity of adverse effects when used in combination with other COX inhibitors and hence caution is advised.
