Disprin Tablet Uses

Disprin is a very common painkiller that is widely available. It is an NSAID and thus helps in pain relief by the way of reducing inflammation in the body. Disprin is used mostly for the treatment of headaches, and other miscellaneous body aches.

It also deals with musculoskeletal pains, especially those that result from inflammation, like arthritis. Nerve pain like sciatica is also addressed by Disprin.

Due to the anticoagulative effect of disprin, it is also used to prevent the formation of blood clots. Hence, it is used for the prophylaxis of heart attack and strokeas well.

While Disprin is an OTC drug, it still should not be used in long term. It can damage gastric health, leading to complications like ulceration in the stomach. Thus, confer with your healthcare provider before using NSAIDs like Disprin, especially when your health condition is complicated, to begin with.

Risks and warnings

You should know the risks and warnings of Disprin to prevent its misuse.

There are some specific circumstances under which the use of certain medications is contraindicated or considered dangerous. So when taking any medicine it's always a good practice to familiarize yourself with its risks and warnings.

The risks and warnings associated with Disprin are:

1. Pregnancy

Pregnant women should take Disprin only at the discretion of their doctor, and that too, after careful benefit versus risk assessment.

Analgesics are not deemed safe during pregnancy, especially during the second and third trimesters. They can be injurious to the health of the baby.

Women who are of childbearing age need to be similarly cautious about using Disprin. They need to stop using Disprin as soon as they conceive the baby, lest the baby is harmed. However, they should not discontinue the use of Disprin without talking to their doctor first.

2. Breastfeeding

Women who are nursing also need to be careful with their use of Disprin. They should only take it after getting approval from their doctor, as it can otherwise be passed off into breast milk, thereby affecting the baby.

3. Allergic to Aspirin

People who are allergic to Aspirin should not take Disprin, or any other medicine with the same generic name, as a severe allergic reaction can cause anaphylactic shock, which is a life-threatening condition.

The reaction can start as soon as 15 minutes into contact with an allergen, and progress rapidly. Unless the person is given a shot of epinephrine, which helps in raising the blood pressure and thus aids the body in getting out of the shock, they can die as well.

Hence it is pertinent that people disclose their allergies to their doctor, so the risk can be averted.

4. Skin reaction

If you have had a skin reaction, known as Steven Jackson syndrome from using Dispirin, you should refrain from taking it again. You should provide your detailed medical history to your healthcare provider to discourage them from prescribing aspirin in any form to you, leading to a dreadful skin reaction.

5. Glucose 6 phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency

Patients who have a condition known as glucose 6 phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency should take Disprin with caution. It can otherwise result in hemolysis.

6. Malnutrition

People suffering from long-term malnutrition need to take Disprin with caution.

7. Dehydration

Patients who have lost a lot of fluid and are dehydrated should be given paracetamol IV with caution.

8. Gastric ulcers

People who are suffering from gastric ulcers and acidity should be careful about taking Disprin.

As an NSAID, it inhibits the production of chemicals that protect the lining of the gastrointestinal tract. It also causes ulceration in the stomach when taken over a long period of time. To help with gastric problems, your doctor may prescribe gastroprotective agents alongside aspirin.

9. Anticoagulants or bleeding disorders

People who take anticoagulants for thinning blood or are suffering from a bleeding disorder should take Disprin only at the advice of their doctors.

Disprin, like anticoagulant medicines, inhibits the production of chemicals that make clotting factors in the body. The compound effect of the two can be dangerous, as it can result in bleeding due to increased anticoagulant action.

10. Kidney disease

People who are suffering from kidney disease should be very cautious about using Disprin, as that in it of itself can cause kidney impairment when taken over a long period of time.

11. Asthma

Since Disprin can precipitate existing asthma, people who are asthmatic need to be cautious when using Disprin.
