Precautions before taking Micropyrin Tab

Aspirin is associated with several suspected orprobable interactions that affect the action of other drugs The following examples are the most common of the suspected interactions NSAIDs may increase the blood levels of lithium Eskalith by reducing the excretion of lithium by the kidneys Increased levels of lithium may lead to lithium toxicity Aspirin may reduce the blood pressure lowering effects of blood pressure medications This may occur because prostaglandins have a role in the regulation of blood pressure When aspirin is used in combination with methotrexate Rheumatrex Trexall or aminoglycoside antibiotics for example gentamicin the blood levels of the methotrexate or aminoglycoside may increase presumably because their elimination from the body is reduced This may lead to more methotrexate or aminoglycosiderelated side effects Individuals taking oral blood thinners or anticoagulants for examplewarfarin Coumadin should avoid aspirin because aspirin also thins the blood and excessive blood thinning may lead to serious bleeding

Significance of Micropyrin Tab

Aspirin is a nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drug NSAID effective in treating fever pain and inflammation in the body It also prevents blood clots ie is antithrombotic As a group NSAIDs are nonnarcotic relievers of mild to moderate pain of many causes includingheadaches injury menstrual cramps arthritis and other musculoskeletal conditions Other members of this class include ibuprofen Motrinindomethacin Indocin nabumetone Relafen and several others They all work by reducing the levels of prostaglandins chemicals that are released when there is inflammation and that cause pain and fever NSAIDs block the enzyme that makes prostaglandins cyclooxygenase resulting in lower concentrations of prostaglandins As a consequence inflammation pain and fever are reduced Inhibition of prostaglandins also reduces the function of platelets and the ability of blood to clot Aspirin inhibits the function of platelets in a manner that is different from other NSAIDs and its antithrombotic effects last longer than other NSAIDs This is why aspirin is used for preventing heart attacks and strokes
