Riclofen 25 mg
Riclofen is an antispastic medicine indicated for the treatment of muscle spasms and spasticity when these symptoms occur as a result of multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, motor neurone disease or other conditions. It works by causing the muscles to relax.
Medical experts believe that this medicine may derive its muscle relaxant properties due to acting on the GABA-B receptors present in the spinal cord.
This results in a decreased amount of reflexes and contractions occurring in the muscles, and can also relieve tension. Riclofen can also treat flexor spasms and pain. However, it is not used to treat muscle spasms caused by rheumatic conditions.
Riclofen becomes in the form of 10 mg tablets for oral administration. The dosage will be dependent on the condition being treated and the opinion of the doctor in charge of treatment. Adults undergoing treatment for muscle spasms are sometimes directed by their doctor to take 5 mg 3 times per day for a period of 3 days, and then 10 mg 3 times per day for a further 3 days, followed by 15mg 3 times daily before a subsequent adjustment to 20 mg administered 3 times per day.
Side effects: nausea, vertigo, insomnia, tiredness, an increase in the frequency of urination.
