Aulin is an anti-inflammatory and pain reliever medicine. It is used for rheumatic diseases (osteoarthritis, tendinitis and bursitis), for pain after an accident or injury, after surgical interventions (e.g. dental surgery) and for painful menstrual bleeding. Aulin is available on prescription from a doctor.

Before your doctor prescribes Aulin for you, he / she will weigh up the benefits and risks of undesirable side effects.

What do you need to consider before use?

Aulin must not be used:

- if you are allergic to the active ingredient nimesulide or to one of the ingredients or after taking acetylsalicylic acid (aspirin) or other painkillers or anti-rheumatic drugs, so-called non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, breathlessness (reactions such as wheezing, runny or blocked nose), allergy-like Have had skin reactions (such as nettle rash);

- if you have ever had liver problems while using nimesulide, or if you have liver disease;

- if you have active gastric and / or duodenal ulcers or gastrointestinal bleeding or previous ulcers or bleeding in the gastrointestinal area;

- with chronic inflammation of the intestine (Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis);

- if you have severe renal impairment;

- for the treatment of pain after coronary bypass surgery on the heart (or use of a heart-lung machine);

- in children under 12 years of age;

- from the 7th month of pregnancy and during breastfeeding.

You should also not be given Aulin in the following cases:

- If you are taking other medicines known to affect the functioning of the liver, e.g. paracetamol or any other pain reliever or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID).

- If you use drugs or are addicted to drugs, medication or other substances.

- If you regularly consume large amounts of alcohol.

- If you have a fever or the flu (with general feeling of pain, fatigue, malaise, attacks of cold or chills, tremors).

The duration of treatment should be kept as short as possible. In rare cases, aulin can cause liver damage. If you experience general symptoms such as loss of appetite, weight loss, malaise, fever, tiredness, weakness, dark urine, which can be signs of liver damage, or discolored stools or yellowing of the skin, you should stop using Aulin and contact your doctor immediately put in touch.

If a fever or flu-like symptoms (muscle pain, fatigue, feeling cold or chills) occur during treatment with Aulin, the drug should be discontinued and the doctor should be consulted immediately.

During treatment with Aulin, ulcers of the mucous membrane of the mucous membrane, rarely bleeding or in individual cases perforations (gastric or intestinal perforations) may occur in the upper gastrointestinal tract. These complications can occur at any time during treatment, even without warning symptoms. To reduce this risk, your doctor or health care professional will prescribe the smallest effective dose for the shortest possible duration of therapy. Contact your doctor or health care professional if you have stomach pain and suspect a connection with the use of the medicine.

Certain painkillers, the so-called COX-2 inhibitors, have been found to have an increased risk of heart attacks and strokes with high doses and / or long-term treatment. It is not yet known whether this increased risk also applies to Aulin. Do not exceed the recommended dose or duration of treatment. If you have already had a heart attack, stroke or venous thrombosis, or if you have risk factors (such as high blood pressure, diabetes, high blood fat levels, smoking), your doctor will decide whether you can still use Aulin. In any case, inform your doctor about this.

Taking Aulin can affect the way your kidneys work, which can lead to an increase in blood pressure and / or to fluid retention (edema). Tell your doctor if you have heart or kidney problems, if you are taking medicines for high blood pressure (e.g. diuretics, ACE inhibitors) or if you lose too much fluid, e.g. through heavy sweating.

In the case of heart, liver or kidney diseases, as well as the simultaneous use of blood thinning agents, other non-steroidal, anti-inflammatory drugs, heparin, furosemide, lithium, methotrexate, cyclosporine, Aulin may only be used on the express instruction of the doctor.

If such events have occurred in advance, you must inform your doctor before taking Aulin, because such diseases can be made worse by Aulin.

In the elderly, the treating doctor can make regular check-ups to make sure that Aulin is not causing problems in the stomach, kidneys, heart or liver.
