ACECLOFENAC, TIZANIDINE TABLET is a combination of two medications that relieve pain and relax the muscles. Aceclofenac is a non-steroidal and anti-inflammatory drug that blocks the release of certain chemical messengers that cause pain and inflammation. The drug tizanidine relaxes muscles. It acts on brain and spinal cord centers to improve pain and muscle movement, as well as to reduce muscle spasms and stiffness. This combination is used to relieve pain and inflammation associated with osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, muscle pain, tooth pain, and bone and joint pain.
Aceclofenac and Tizanidine are the two medications that make ACECLOFENAC+TIZANIDINE. A combination medication called ACECLOFENAC+TIZANIDINE is used to treat headaches, muscle, dental, bone, and joint pain, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, and ankylosing spondylitis. Tizanidine is a muscle relaxant that acts on the brain and spinal cord's central nervous systems. This enhances muscle mobility and relieves stiffness in the muscles. Aceclofenac is an analgesic that acts by preventing the production of prostaglandins, a substance that is formed at injury sites and causes pain and swelling, by cyclo-oxygenase (COX) enzymes.
