Contain the active ingredient : Piroxicam, which is a type of medicine called a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). NSAIDs are used to relieve pain and inflammation. (NB. Piroxicam is also available without a brand name, ie as the generic medicine.)
Piroxicam works by blocking the action of a substance in the body called cyclo-oxygenase (COX). Cyclo-oxygenase is involved in the production of various chemicals in the body, some of which are known as prostaglandins. Prostaglandins are produced by the body in response to injury and certain diseases and conditions, and cause pain, swelling and inflammation. Piroxicam blocks the production of these prostaglandins and is therefore effective at reducing inflammation and pain.
Piroxicam can be used to relieve pain and inflammation in a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions, including various forms of arthritis. However, due to the risk of side effects on the gut and skin rashes associated with the medicine (see warnings below) it should not be the first NSAID that is prescribed to relieve these conditions. In addition it is no longer recommended for the short-term relief of pain and inflammation in conditions such as acute gout, muscle sprains and strains or following surgery.
Piroxicam has a prolonged duration of action which means that one dose can provide pain relief throughout the day. You should try and take your dose at the same time each day. The tablets should preferably be taken with food, as this helps reduce irritation to the stomach.
What is it used for?
Relief of pain and inflammation in the following conditions in adults:
a form of arthritis affecting the joints of the spine (ankylosing spondylitis).
