About

Rotec 75 75mg+200mcg Tablet 10 'S belongs to a class of drugs called “anti-inflammatory and anti-rheumatics” (phenylacetic acid/Cox-2 inhibitor) used as a prophylaxis treatment against NSAIDs induced gastric ulcers in rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. 

Rotec 75 75mg+200mcg Tablet 10 'S is a combination of two medicines. Diclofenac sodium is classified as a non steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) that prevents pain and inflammation (redness and swelling) by blocking the release of chemical messengers (prostaglandins) responsible for it. However, it may cause gastric (stomach) ulcers. On the other hand, misoprostol is a prostaglandin analogue which plays a role in protecting your stomach and preventing ulcer formation.
