Overdose of Diclowin PLUS in details

When a dose is taken in higher dose than the recommended doses, it is called Overdose. Overdose always needs a clinical supervision. Any medicine or drug when consumed in Overdose produces untoward side effects on one or various organs in the body. A medicine is excreted in the kidney or metabolized in the liver most of the times. This process goes without any hurdles when taken in normal dose, but when taken in an overdose, the body is not able to metabolize it or send it out properly which causes the effects of anoverdose.

Naprelan® (naproxen sodium controlled-release tablets) represents the first prescription product to offer convenient once-a-day dosing of naproxen, a medication long considered a standard in arthritis treatment. Diclowin PLUS or naproxen sodium-based products account for nearly one in every five prescriptions written for non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID) in the United States. (Diclowin PLUS sodium, a sodium salt formulation of naproxen, provides for more rapid absorption./p>

Naprelan tablets use a proprietary delivery system IPDAS™, (Intestinal Protective Drug Absorption System), a matrix of naproxen sodium with immediate and controlled-release components. Upon ingestion, and after rapid disintegration of the tablet matrix, an initial portion (approximately 30%) of the medication is released for rapid systemic absorption -- achieving onset of analgesic action within 30 minutes. In addition, a sustained-release component of microparticles provides an extended absorption phase that has wide GI dispersion, allowing gradual absorption throughout the GI tract, and prolongs therapeutic systemic levels of the drug, enabling 24-hour duration of action and once-a-day dosing/p>

Diclowin PLUS has been used safely and effectively worldwide for 20 years and is one of the NSAIDs most widely used in the treatment of osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Numerous clinical studies have demonstrated the efficacy and safety profile of naproxen. Naprelan offers the same efficacy and safety profile with the added advantage of once-a-day dosing. The most frequent complaints relate to the gastrointestinal tract. Serious GI toxicity, such as perforation, ulceration or bleeding can occur in patients treated chronically with NSAID therapy. Please consult with your physician to see if Naprelan may be right for you.
