Tilcotil Description

Tilcotil belongs to the family of non-steroidal anti inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and may be prescribed to treat the pain, swelling, and inflammation caused by rheumatoid and osteoarthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, tendonitis, and bursitis. Tilcotil or generic Tenoxicam is also recommended for reducing a fever. The generic alternative is not manufactured by the company that makes the brand product.

Tilcotil or other NSAIDs are not recommended to take as a long-term treatment for arthritis as they do have some unwelcome effects, such as reducing blood flow to your kidneys, interfering with the production of platelets that are vital for clotting after surgery or an injury, and the damage they can do to the lining of your stomach. Once the pain and swelling has receded, your doctor may lower the dosage as a maintenance drug to keep the inflammation reduced.

How Tilcotil Works to Relieve Pain and Inflammation

Tilcotil prevents the action of certain enzymes called cyclo-oxygenase or COX-1 and COX-2 so they cannot produce the prostaglandins which cause the inflammation as an immune response to an injury. Because Tilcotil affects both cyclo-oxygenase enzymes 1 and 2, it is referred to as a non-selective COX inhibitor. There are very few selective COX inhibitors available at this point in time.

COX-1 is found in most cells and is important for maintaining the lining of your stomach so the acid used for digesting food cannot cause damage. COX-2 is produced as a response to specific prompting and signals the production of prostaglandins which head to the injured or threatened site and cause inflammation and pain as part of the healing process.

Conditions Treated by Tilcotil or Generic Tenoxicam

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is an autoimmune disease that causes your own body to attack your tissues; which in this case is the cartilage and lining of the joint, resulting in the erosion of the two opposing bones as they rub against each without the lining or cartilage that makes movement more fluid. Your fingers, wrists, knees, and elbows are the most common joints affected by RA, making mobility and dexterity painful and sometimes impossible.

Osteoarthritis (OA) usually targets both large and small joints of your body, including hands, feet, back, hips, and knees. OA also causes two opposing bones to rub against each other as cartilage begins to wear away through aging or an injury. Staying active as your age increases may help keep your joints healthy and muscles strong so you are able to continue performing your daily tasks.

Before You Take Tilcotil

Ask your doctor if Tilcotil is safe to take if you are pregnant, may become pregnant, or are breast feeding. Discuss other medical conditions and allergies you have with your doctor and list any OTC and Rx medications you take, including herbal remedies and vitamin supplements. This allows your doctor to decide if Tilcotil is the right drug for you.

Proper Use of Tilcotil

You should not give Tilcotil to adolescents or children under the age of sixteen years old without first talking to your doctor. If you experience an unwanted response to taking Tilcotil, see your doctor right away. Do not stop taking any current meds or add new ones to your daily schedule unless your doctor is aware and checks to see if any dosage adjustments are required.
