While Medicines are hugely important in healthcare, they also have the potential to cause problems. Unsafe medication practice and errors can cause serious harm to patients due to: side effects; adverse reactions; misuse; and how medicines are prescribed, dispensed, administered or monitored.
One of the best ways to reduce your risk of a medication error is to take an active role in your own health care. Learn about the medications you take — including possible side effects. Never hesitate to ask questions or share concerns with your doctor, pharmacist and other health care providers.

How Dolo Neurobion Injection Works
Dolo Neurobion Injection provides a synergistic effect on a number of pain conditions, which are mainly of mixed pain origin, wherein both the underlying nociceptive (e.g. cuts, burns of the skin; broken bones) as well as neuropathic components of the pain complex are treated.
In mixed pain conditions nociceptive and neuropathic types of pain are present. Both have to be treated with compounds of different modes of action. Neuropathies/neuropathic pain component are described as numbness, tiredness, tingling, pins and needles sensations, etc.
Vitamin B1 is an important component that helps provide energy to nerve cells which is essential in maintaining its healthy state and function as well as help in nerve regeneration and healing.
Vitamin B6 acts as a coenzyme in the body that helps process carbohydrates, fats and proteins that are needed in the maintenance of the body’s healthy state.
Vitamin B12 is an essential component that helps in the maintenance, metabolism and maturation of nerve cells as well as all other cells of the body. It also has an important role in hematopoiesis or red blood cell formation. It helps in the formation of the myelin sheath, which is the protective covering of the nerves.
In combination, vitamins (B1, B6 and B12) are all involved in important functions of the nervous system and contribute to nerve regeneration or healing. Thus, this contributes in the treatment of the neuropathic component and the underlying nerve damage in “mixed pain”.
Procaine Hydrochloride is the hydrochloride salt form of procaine, a benzoic acid derivative with local anesthetic and antiarrhythmic properties. Procaine binds to and inhibits voltage-gated sodium channels, thereby inhibiting the ionic flux required for the initiation and conduction of impulses.
