This information is a reference and it is not enough that the drug has been prescribed by a doctor ..

Blocking COX disrupts the synthesis of prostaglandins and ATP production. Has anti-inflammatory, antipyretic and analgesic effect, inhibits platelet aggregation.
The analgesic effect is due to both central and peripheral action.

Affects the center of thermoregulation, reduces fever.

Reduces aggregation, platelet adhesion and thrombus formation by suppressing the synthesis of thromboxane A 2 in platelets.

Chronic rheumatoid arthritis, chronic psoriatic arthritis, osteoarthritis, Bechterew's disease, gouty arthritis, myositis, tenosynovitis, tendosynovitis, bursitis, lumbago, ishalgia, postoperative inflammation, soft tissue damage, and thrombophlebitis of superficial veins.

Depending on the indications and severity of the disease, adults - 60 mg 1-3 times / day.

If gout is exacerbated, 180 mg / day in 3 divided doses until the clinical symptoms disappear.
If necessary, patients without erosive-ulcerative gastrointestinal lesions at the beginning of treatment temporarily increase the dose to 300 mg / day: once 120 mg, then 60 mg every 8 hours. This dosage regimen, if necessary, is kept for the 2nd day. With a decrease in symptoms, the dose is reduced.

Impact on the ability to drive vehicles and manage mechanisms

Acetecacin can adversely affect the ability to concentrate attention and the speed of psychomotor reactions.

Inducers of microsomal oxidation (phenytoin, ethanol in small doses, barbiturates, zixorin, rifampicin, phenylbutazone, tricyclic antidepressants) increase the production of hydroxylated active metabolites.

Acetetacin reduces the effectiveness of uricosuric drugs;
enhances the effect of anticoagulants, antiaggregants, fibrinolytics, side effects of mineralocorticoids, GCS, estrogens; reduces the effectiveness of antihypertensive and diuretics; potentiates hypoglycemic effect of sulfonylurea derivatives.
Antacids and colestyramine reduce the absorption of acetemethacin.

Acetetacin increases the concentration in the blood of lithium preparations, methotrexate.
