What is Tricosal?

Tricosal is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) that works by reducing substances in the body that cause pain, fever, and inflammation.

Tricosal is used to treat mild-to-moderate pain, fever, inflammatory conditions, and pain, swelling, or stiffness associated with arthritis. Tricosal is also used to reduce fever in adults.

Tricosal may also be used for purposes not listed in this medication guide.

You should not use this medicine if you are allergic to salicylates (such as aspirin) or other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs).

Tricosal may cause stomach or intestinal bleeding, which can be fatal. These conditions can occur without warning while you are using this medicine, especially in older adults.

Do not give this medicine to a child or teenager with a fever, flu symptoms, or chicken pox. Salicylates can cause Reye’s syndrome, a serious and sometimes fatal condition in children.

Before taking this medicine

You should not use Tricosal if you are allergic to it, or if you have ever had:

  • a severe allergic reaction after taking aspirin or other salicylates, such as Nuprin Backache Caplet, Kaopectate, KneeRelief, Pamprin Cramp Formula, Pepto-Bismol, Tricosal, Trilisate, and others.

Do not give Tricosal to a child or teenager with a fever, flu symptoms, or chicken pox. Salicylates can cause Reye’s syndrome, a serious and sometimes fatal condition in children.

  • a stomach ulcer or stomach bleeding;

  • asthma;

Take this medicine with a full glass of water.

Take with food if Tricosal upsets your stomach.

Measure liquid medicine with the dosing syringe provided, or with a special dose-measuring spoon or medicine cup. If you do not have a dose-measuring device, ask your pharmacist for one.

If a child is using this medicine, tell your doctor if the child has any changes in weight. Tricosal doses are based on weight in children, and any changes may affect your child’s dose.

While using Tricosal, you may need frequent blood tests.

If you need surgery, tell the surgeon ahead of time that you are using Tricosal. You may need to stop using the medicine for a short time.
