What Endolex is and what it is used for
This medicine is a pain reliever that belongs to the group of medicines called non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs).
It is used for the short-term symptomatic treatment of acute pain of mild or moderate intensity, such as muscle or joint pain, menstrual pain (dysmenorrhea) or dental pain.
Endolex is indicated in adult patients.

How to take Endolex
Follow exactly the instructions for administration of this medicine contained in this leaflet or those indicated by your doctor or pharmacist. If in doubt ask your doctor or pharmacist.
The dose you need of this medicine may vary, depending on the type, intensity, and duration of pain.
The lowest effective dose should be used for the shortest time necessary to relieve symptoms. If you have an infection, see a doctor without delay if symptoms (such as fever and pain) persist or worsen (see section 2).
If the pain persists for more than 4 days, you should stop the treatment and consult your doctor.

Adults from 18 years
In general, 1 sachet (25 mg of dexketoprofen) every 8 hours is recommended, without exceeding 3 sachets per day (75 mg).
If you are elderly or suffer from kidney or liver disease, it is recommended to start treatment with a maximum of 2 sachets a day (50 mg). In elderly patients this starting dose can be subsequently increased according to the general recommended dose (75 mg dexketoprofen) if this medicine has been well tolerated.

Use in children and adolescents
This medicine should not be used in children and adolescents (under 18 years of age).

Instructions for proper use
The oral solution can be taken directly from the sachet or after removing its contents in a glass of water. Once the envelope is opened, consume all its content.
Take the medicine with food, as this helps lower the risk of stomach or intestinal side effects. However, if your pain is severe and you need quick relief, take the sachets on an empty stomach (at least 15 minutes before a meal) as they will be more easily absorbed.

If you take more Endolex than you should
If you have taken too much medicine, inform your doctor or pharmacist immediately or go to the emergency department of your nearest hospital or call the Toxicology Information Service, telephone: 91.562.04.20 indicating the medicine and the amount taken. Please remember to always carry the medication box or this leaflet with you.

If you forget to take Endolex
Do not take a double dose to make up for a forgotten dose. Take the next dose when it is due (according to the section “How to take Endolex”).

If you have questions about the use of this medicine, ask your doctor or pharmacist.
