INTRODUCTION

BAKFLEX INJECTIONcontains Thiocolchicoside, which belongs to the group of medicines called Muscle relaxants. It is used in adults and adolescents 16 years of age and older as an add-on therapy for painful muscle contractions and acute painful conditions related to the spine.

Muscle spasms (muscle cramps) are painful contractions and tightening of your muscles. They’re usually common, involuntary, and unpredictable. The symptoms may include swelling, pain, stiffness, tenderness, and fatigue.

Before receiving BAKFLEX INJECTION inform your doctor if you have flaccid paralysis (sagging of the face), muscular hypotonia (weak muscles), diarrhoea, lactose intolerance, seizure or epilepsy. BAKFLEX INJECTION is not recommended for use in pregnant or breastfeeding women.

BAKFLEX INJECTION is not recommended for use in children and adolescents below 16 years of age. The most common side effects of receiving BAKFLEX INJECTION are skin allergic reactions, drowsiness, diarrhea and gastric symptoms. Consult your doctor if any of your symptoms get worse or persist.

USES OF BAKFLEX INJECTION

HOW BAKFLEX INJECTION WORKS

BAKFLEX INJECTION works through selective binding to the GABA-A receptor (neurotransmitter). It prevents muscle contractions by activating the GABA-inhibitory motor pathway and inhibiting the glycine receptors (neurotransmitters). Thus, relaxing the muscle pain and spasms.
