How to take Nimesil?

When piercing pain appears in muscles or joints, we are looking for a quick and effective way to get rid of it. It is for such cases that the drug Nimesil is intended - an “ambulance” for pain syndromes.

What is the power of Nimeles?

The therapeutic effect of Nimesil is expressed in its anti-inflammatory, antipyretic and analgesic action. Once inside the body, the drug is rapidly absorbed, converted in the liver, and after exposure to the inflammatory focus is excreted in the bile. It is intended for the treatment of diseases such as:

  • acute pain in the musculoskeletal system (trauma, stretching, sprains, tendenitis, bursitis);
  • osteoarthritis with pain syndrome;
  • algomenorrhea;
  • headache and toothache.

At high temperatures, the remedy is rarely taken only when the usual antipyretic no longer helps.

How to take Nimesil in powder

Since Nimesil is a strong drug, to avoid side effects, you need to know how much to take it.One medicine bag contains 100 mg of yellowish granulate. It is recommended to use it in the form of a suspension, twice a day before meals. The contents of the bag must be dissolved in a glass of warm water (80-100 ml). The resulting drink is designed for one reception and is not subject to storage.

One tablet of Nimesil is 100 mg of Nimesulide, the active ingredient. She, like powder, is taken before meals with water.

Dosage and overdose

The fact is that long-term use of the drug creates a significant burden on the liver and cardiovascular system. It is possible the occurrence of side effects such as allergies, dizziness, shortness of breath, tachycardia, hypothermia and other disorders.
