Use of Etoshine(Etoricoxib Fast Disintearating, given by Dr. for Knee pain) in Prostate problem
Patient : I have knee pain in left leg and the cartilage is damaged partly, a tablet twice a week has been referred to me, its name is -Etoshine 120 (Etoricoxib Fast Disintearating tablet). It gives me painless movements up to one week.
At the same time I am suffering from prostate problem (without cancer) and I am of 60 years, I used to feel pain in storage of urine resulting into urgent need to urinate and pain during urinating and no pain after urinating.
When I use above tablet it also removes pain in urinating and it also decreases urgent need to urinate.
My question is should I also use this tablet to remove pain in urinating etc. How does it affect the parts where there is pain? Does it remove swallowing causing pain? Or it is also a remedy to decrease the size of prostate causing pain in urination.
Hank you for your question. Etoricoxib is an anti-inflammatory pain medication of the selective COX-2 inhibitor class. It is indicated for the treatment of inflammatory conditions such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and gout. Since this drug acts throughout the body, it can assist in treating the pain associated with an enlarged prostate. However, this medication cannot decrease the size, or treat specific conditions related to the prostate gland.
