Aceclofenac, Paracetamol, Chlorzoxazone tablets for Pain and Inflammation
Aceclofenac – Aceclofenac a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) is used to relief pain and inflammation in rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, and ankylosing spondylitis. Aceclofenac should not be given to people with porphyria or breast-feeding mothers and is not recommended for children. It should be avoided near term in a pregnant woman because of the risk of having a patent ductus arteriosus in the neonate.
Paracetamol – Paracetamol is a medication used to treat pain and fever. It is typically used for mild to moderate pain relief. There is mixed evidence for its use to relieve fever in children. It is often sold in combination with other medications, such as in many cold medications. Paracetamol is also used for severe pain, such as cancer pain and pain after surgery, in combination with opioid pain medication. It is typically used either by mouth or rectally but is also available by injection into a vein. Effects last between 2 to 4 hours.
Chlorzoxazone – Chlorzoxazone is a centrally acting muscle relaxant used to treat muscle spasm and the resulting pain or discomfort. It acts on the spinal cord by depressing reflexes. Possible side effects include dizziness, lightheadedness, malaise, nausea, vomiting, and liver dysfunction. Used with acetaminophen it has added risk of hepatoxicity, which is why the combination is not recommended. It can also be administered for acute pain in general and for tension headache (muscle contraction headache).
