Feldene is a medical product from the group of nonselective nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. The medicine has an active ingredient Piroxicam. This ingredient provides an anti-inflammatory, antifebrile, pain-relieving action in order to remove the symptoms of the degenerative diseases.
The mechanism of the action of Feldene is based on its ability to nonselectively block COX-1 and COX-2 enzymes. Due to this action, a production of prostaglandins (inflammatory mediators) is stopped.
Piroxicam also interacts with the center of the body temperature regulation in the brain. It may reduce a general body temperature and the fever sites in certain tissues (joints and other places of the inflammation), and so a painful threshold is increased.
A result of Feldene use is a reduction of the inflammation in the joints, an improvement of the movement activity, a reduction of the tightness in the movements, a reduction of edema and a faster recovery after the disease.
Feldene is prescribed for the expectant treatment of the locomotor system: radiculitis, pain during spinal disc herniation, rheumatoid spondylitis, degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis, and others.
As the degenerative diseases of the locomotor system are mainly chronic, a safety of the anti-inflammatory medicines is very important to a patient. Feldene is a rather safe product for the regular use. It does not cause a medical addiction, and if all precautions are followed, it does not normally have side effects.
In what dose is Feldene used?
Feldene is produced in capsules for the oral use. They are rather quickly dissolved in the stomach and start acting within 15-20 mins. In half an hour after the use of a dose, a pain-relieving effect occurs that lasts for up to 12 hours.
An anti-inflammatory effect is not so intensive during one-time use of Feldene. It gradually grows and achieves maximum in 4-5 days after the started treatment.
The capsules should be used during meals, or within an hour after the meals. A one-time dose of Feldene varies from 10 to 20 mg, depending on the severity of the painful syndrome. The drug may be used not more than 2 times per day with the interval of 8 hours.
The maximal daily dose of Feldene is 40 mg.
- Do not take Feldene on an empty stomach because it may cause stomachache and other dyspeptic disorders
- In case of the acute state of the gastric ulcer and duodenum ulcer during the treatment, it is required to stop the use of Feldene
- If renal or hepatic failure, the use of the drug is contraindicated
- Pregnant women should not take Feldene. This is not safe for a development of fetus and a woman’s health
The most common side effects during the use of Feldene are nausea, headache, flatulency, fatigue, stomachache, and light edema.
The increase of the allowed daily dose leads to the increase of the side effects and a development of the allergic reactions.
