About ACEFENAC SP TABLET

ACEFENAC SP TABLET belongs to the class of drugs known as 'non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug' (NSAID). It is a fixed-dose combination composed of aceclofenac, paracetamol and serratiopeptidase. ACEFENAC SP TABLET is used in the reduction of pain and inflammation due to bone or soft tissue injury, resolution of post-operative inflammation, oedema (swollen tissue with fluid) and pain. Aceclofenac works by blocking the action of an enzyme known as cyclo-oxygenase (COX) which causes pain and swelling at the injured or damaged tissue. Paracetamol acts as mild analgesic (pain reducer) and antipyretic (fever reducer) which enhances the pain relief action of aceclofenac. Serratiopeptidase is an enzyme which helps in the breakdown of a protein (fibrin) which is formed as a by-product of the clotted blood at the site of injury. It thus causes thinning of the fluids around the site of injury thereby making fluid drainage smoother in the swollen tissue.

Pain can be temporary (acute) or lifelong (chronic) in nature. Acute pain is for a short time caused by damage to the tissues of the muscle, bone or organs. While, chronic pain lasts for life long caused due to nerve damage, osteoarthritis and dental pain due to damage to the tooth nerve, infection, decay, extraction or injury. There are different types of musculoskeletal pain caused due to soft tissues (muscle, tendon and ligaments) injury. Extreme tissue pain and inflammation caused due to sprains, strains or trauma or post-surgery may require a prolonged amount of time to heal.
