Pirox 20 mg is used for the treatment of osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. It is categorized under non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). It helps to relieve the pain and inflammation associated with these conditions.
Take Pirox only as directed by your doctor. Avoid taking more of it or longer than your doctor has recommended. If possible, you should prefer taking the lowest dose for the shortest period. Taking too much of this medicine may increase your chance of undesired and sometimes dangerous side effects, especially if you are an elderly patient, have other medical conditions or take other medications. Pirox capsules should be taken immediately after a meal or with food or milk.
Your doctor will examine the potential benefits and risks of Pirox and other treatment options before prescribing Pirox capsules. He will prescribe the lowest effective dose for the shortest duration consistent with individual patient treatment goals. Based on the response to initial treatment with Piroxicam, the dose and frequency should be adjusted to suit an individual patient’s needs. The suggested dose is 20 mg once daily, orally once daily, to relieve rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. There is a progressive increase in response over several weeks, and the treatment effect should not be assessed for two weeks.
