About Ezact 90 Tablet

Ezact 90 Tablet is used to treat pain, swelling and inflammation in osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis and gout in people greater than 16 years of age. Besides this, it is also used to treat moderate pain after dental surgery. Osteoarthritis is a degenerative bone disease in which the tissue supporting the joints wears down. Rheumatoid arthritis is a condition in which the immune system attacks its tissue, leading to joint pain and inflammation. Ankylosing spondylitis is the inflammation of the spine and large joints. Gout is characterized by pain and inflammation in the joints due to the deposition of uric acid crystals.

Ezact 90 Tablet contains ‘etoricoxib’, which works by blocking the release of a chemical messenger called prostaglandin, produced by COX-2, which is responsible for pain, swelling and inflammation. Ezact 90 Tablet acts at the affected area and acts specifically at the pain site. The benefit of COX-2 inhibitors is that they protect the stomach lining from the ulcer effect caused by other painkillers, ibuprofen and aspirin.

Medicinal Benefits

Ezact 90 Tablet contains ‘etoricoxib’ which is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). It acts as both analgesic (reduces pain) and an anti-inflammatory (reduces inflammation) agent. It is a selective COX-2 inhibitor. COX-2 enzymes are responsible for converting arachidonic acid to prostaglandins which are inflammatory mediators. The blocking of COX-2 reduces the production of prostaglandins, eventually decreasing pain and inflammation.
