How Chlorzoxazone + Diclofenac + Paracetamol works

  • Chlorzoxazone is a muscle relaxant that acts on the spinal cord and certain brain areas to stop reflexes that cause muscle spasms. This helps reduce muscle spasms, relieve pain, and improve movement.
  • Diclofenac is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) that inhibits the production of certain chemicals in the body called prostaglandins. These are responsible for inflammation, pain, and fever. Diclofenac helps reduce pain, inflammation, and swelling by blocking their production.
  • Paracetamol is an analgesic and antipyretic agent. It inhibits prostaglandin synthesis in the brain to lower fever and reduce pain.
