You are taking zerodol-P(aceclofenac 100 mg, paracetamol 500 mg), dexamethasone, amoxicillin and and drexabion( Vit B1 100 mg, vit B6 5 mg, vit B12 50 mcg) for lower back pain and you are advised to take till pain subsides.Taking zerodol-P and drexabion is alright for low back pain, but taking Dexamethasone and amoxicillin, that too till pain subsides is very contradictory and controversial. What will happen if pain does not subsides ? Dexamethasone is sometimes used for for Acute back pain. In a recent study from Denmark, low back pain lasting more than six months who had developed a Modic 1 change (seen in MRI) in vertebrae adjacent to a previously herniated disc, amoxicillin-clavulanate (500mg/125mg), not amoxicillin, given 3 times a day for 100 days is fond effective in 40% of patients.
