Reservix : Each film-coated tablet contains Aceclofenac BP 100 mg.
Reservix is a non-steroidal agent with antiinflammatory and analgesic properties. Its mode of action is largely based on inhibition of prostaglandin synthesis. Reservix is a potent inhibitor of the enzyme cyclooxygenase, which is involved in the production of prostaglandins. It also stimulates cartilage matrix (glycosaminoglycans) synthesis.
Reservix is indicated for the relief of pain and inflammation in both acute and chronic pain like osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, dental pain, post-traumatic pain, low back pain, gynaecological pain etc.

Children: There is no clinical data on the use of aceclofenac in children.
Elderly: The pharmacokinetics of aceclofenac are not altered in elderly patients, therefore it is not considered necessary to modify the dose and dose frequency.
