Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • Your problem is sciatica, but it has not yet progressed to a severe stage.
  • At this stage, you need rest and the following treatment. Consult your specialist doctor, discuss with him or her and take treatment with consent.
  1. Tablet Aceclo SR (Aceclofenac) as needed, do not use continuously.
  2. Tablet Mecalfa PG (multivitamin) daily in the night.
  • When the acute pain is subsided, please consult a physiotherapist for back strengthening exercises.
