Rotec Tablet Uses

Rotec tablet is used to treat pain and inflammation associated with rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, and other musculoskeletal conditions. It is also used to prevent stomach ulcers that may be caused by long-term use of NSAIDs. Diclofenac sodium works by blocking the production of certain chemicals in the body that cause pain and inflammation, while misoprostol helps protect the stomach lining and prevent ulcers.
