Froben Tablet Uses

Froben tablet is an NSAID primarily used for the treatment of pain, joint stiffness, and swelling due to arthritis. However, it can also be taken for toothache, period cramps and other types of body aches 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.

Froben stops 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, Froben are generally used to treat these chronic ailments.

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

  • Stroke

Froben can increase the propensity towards a stroke. People with a high risk of or history of stroke should not take Froben then.

  • Hypertension

Patients suffering from hypertension should take Froben with caution. It increases water retention in the body, leading to increase in blood pressure, which is not good for hypertensive patients.

  • Congestive heart failure

Congestive heart failure is a condition in which the heart is unable to pump blood efficiently. Increase in the blood volume is, therefore, not good for the health of such patients. Since Froben causes the body to retain more water, it can exacerbate the symptoms of the patients. Thus, patients of congestive heart failure are to take Froben with extreme caution.

  • Edema

Edema is swelling in the body. As it can be aggravated by water retention, people suffering from edema should take Froben with caution.

  • Gastric ulcers

Since Froben inhibits the production of chemicals that protect the stomach lining, people who have gastric ulcers and complaints of acidity should take Froben with extreme caution.

Moreover, long term use of Froben can actually cause ulcer formation in the stomach. Thus, use it with discretion.

  • Anticoagulants or bleeding disorders

People who are taking anticoagulants for thinning blood or are suffering from any bleeding disorders should use Froben at the advice of their healthcare provider only. 

Froben inhibits the chemicals that make clotting factors in the blood. Anticoagulants also carry out the same action. When taken together, they can cause bleeding on account of increased anticoagulation action in the body.

  • Kidney disease

Since long term use of Froben can impair kidney functionality, those already suffering from kidney disease or failure should take Froben with caution.

  • Asthma

Froben can also precipitate an existing case of asthma. Thus, asthmatic patients should take Froben with caution.

Liver aids in the metabolism and excretion of drugs. However, when the liver is not working due to disease or any impairment otherwise, drugs can get accumulated in the body, which has grave implications for the health of the person. Hence, anyone suffering from liver problems should take Froben with caution.
