Daflon 500 mg is a prescription-only oral phlebotropic drug indicated in the treatment of venous disease--all conditions related to or caused by veins that become diseased or abnormal--and hemorrhoidal disease, which is dilated veins caused by increased pressure in the rectum.
The Daflon 500 product pamphlet says it is highly effective in the treatment of chronic hemorrhoidal disease and in reducing the frequency, severity and duration of severe hemorrhoidal attacks.
The manufacturer of Daflon 500 says this medication can relieve heavy legs, pain, nocturnal cramps and edema, which is swelling that is caused by fluid trapped in your body's tissues. There have been a few minor side effects associated with Daflon 500, but they have generally not been severe enough to warrant the discontinuation of treatment.
The autonomic nervous system regulates certain body processes, such as blood pressure and the rate of breathing. Some cases of minor autonomic disorders have been reported in connection with the use of Daflon 500.
Minor gastrointestinal disorders, which are digestive disorders that interfere with the workings of the intestine, have also occurred in some patients.
Daflon 500 has not been found to be incompatible nor does it appear to interact with any other medications. Daflon 500 should not be taken by women who are breastfeeding.
