Ansaid Tablet Uses

Ansaid is used mostly in cases of arthritis, however, they can also be taken for toothache, period cramps and other miscellaneous body aches caused especially due to inflammation.

Inflammation is part of the immune response and helps in the body's defense. However, it can be triggered by the body without the presence of any pathogen, causing harm to the normal tissue then. It also stimulates the nerves, leading to pain in the body as well.

Drugs like Ansaid stop the production of the chemical mediators that are responsible for triggering inflammation and pain in the body. Since inflammation is common in arthritis and osteoarthritis, Ansaid are generally used to treat these chronic ailments.

Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS) like Ansaid are also used in the treatment of toothache. Ansaid is also prescribed for the treatment of other bodily aches, especially menstrual cramps. However, it is less potent than similar painkillers.
