Okitask, what this drug is used for
Okitask is an anti-inflammatory and anti-rheumatic drug that is used for pain of different origin and nature such as:

The medication should be taken once or repeatedly for 2-3 times a day, if you have pain of greater intensity, best after meals on a full stomach. Always keep in mind that there are many natural medicines for muscle pain that are worth trying.
However, do not use for a very prolonged time without consulting a physician.
The granular should be placed directly on the tongue and it will be saliva and dissolve it, so there is no need to use water.
Do not exceed the recommended doses if you are an adult while the elderly should stick to the minimum dosages indicated on the package insert.
