Dosage And Administration
Preservin SR Tablet: The recommended dose is 200 mg, once daily. Children: There are no clinical data on the use of Aceclofenac in children.

The majority of side-effects observed have been reversible and of a minor nature and include gastro-intestinal disorders (dyspepsia, abdominal pain, nausea and diarrhea) and occasional occurrence of dizziness. Dermatological complaints including pruritus and rash and abnormal hepatic enzyme levels and raised serum creatinine have occasionally been reported.
Aceclofenac should be administered with caution to patients with symptoms indicative of gastrointestinal disorders, with a history of peptic ulceration, ulcerative colitis. Crohn's disease, hepatic porphyria, and coagulation disorders.
Use In Pregnancy Lactation
There is no information or the use of Aceclofenac during pregnancy. The regular use of NSAIDs during the last trimester of pregnancy may increase uterine tone and contraction. There is no information on the secretion of Aceclofenac to breast milk. The use of Aceclofenac should therefore be avoided in pregnancy and lactation unless the potential benefits to the mother outweigh the possible risks to the fetus.
Lithium and Digoxin: Aceclofenac, like many NSAIDs may increase plasma concentration of Lithium and Digoxin. Diuretics: Aceclofanac, like other NSAID may interact the activity of diuretics. Anticoagulants: Like other NSAIDs Aceclofenac may enhance the activity of anticoagulant. Close monitoring of patients on combined anticoagulants and Acaclofenac therapy should be undertaken. Methotrexate: Caution should be exercised if NSAIDs and Methotrexate are administered within 24 hours of each other, since NSAIDs may increase Methotrexate plasma levels, resulting in increased toxicity.
