INTRODUCTION

THIOQUESTcontains Thiocolchicoside, which belongs to the group of medicines called Muscle relaxants. It is used in adults and adolescents over 16 years of age to treat painful muscle contractions and for acute painful conditions related to the spine. Muscle spasms (muscle cramps) are painful contractions and tightening of your muscles. They’re common, involuntary, and unpredictable. The symptoms may include swelling, pain, stiffness, tenderness, and fatigue.

Your doctor may advise you to take relevant tests to understand your condition. Before taking THIOQUEST, inform your doctor if you have flaccid paralysis (sagging of the face), muscular hypotonia (weak muscles), diarrhoea, lactose intolerance, seizure, or epilepsy.

THIOQUEST is not recommended for use by pregnant or breastfeeding women. THIOQUEST should not be used by children or adolescents under the age of 16. The most common side effects of taking THIOQUEST are skin allergic reactions, drowsiness, diarrhea, and gastric symptoms. Consult your doctor if your symptoms get worse or persist.

HOW THIOQUEST WORKS

THIOQUEST 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.
