Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

^

Q: Is Maxofen Plus Tablet addictive?

A: No, Maxofen Plus Tablet is not addictive, but it is advisable not to give this medicine if anyone else has the same condition as you.

Q: Should Maxofen Plus Tablet be taken with food or without food?

A: Maxofen Plus Tablet can be taken with food.

Q: What are COX inhibitors? Is Maxofen Plus Tablet a COX inhibitor?

A: COX or cyclooxygenase inhibitors block the enzyme cyclooxygenase which secretes substances in injury or illness that promote pain and inflammation. There are 2 forms of this enzyme called COX-1 and COX-2. While some medicines selectively inhibit COX-1 (Aspirin, Indomethacin) or COX-2 (Etoricoxib, Valdecoxib), Maxofen Plus Tablet inhibits both the enzymes. Maxofen Plus Tablet may increase the intensity of adverse effects when used in combination with other COX inhibitors and hence caution is advised.

Q: Is there anything else I need to know before taking Maxofen Plus Tablet?

A: There should be a minimum 6-hour gap between 2 tablets of Maxofen Plus Tablet and you should not take more than 3 tablets in 24 hours. It is not recommended to use this medicine for more than 4 days on self-prescription. If you have used it for a longer period, consult your doctor. This medicine should not be used in children below 12 years of age and who weigh less than 40 kg (if >12 yrs old).

Q: Why do pain killers cause gastrointestinal bleeding?

A: Pain killers (NSAIDs) irritate or damage the lining of the stomach which results in stomach bleeding. This lead to the formation of ulcers or perforation. However, this does not occur in normal doses and is especially a concern if you are taking pain killers for a prolonged period or use them more than regularly. The risk of gastrointestinal bleeding, ulcers and perforation is higher with higher doses.
