About FLEXILOR INJECTION 2ML

FLEXILOR INJECTION 2ML belongs to a group of medicines called anti-rheumatic and anti-inflammatory agents used to reduce and relieve pain and inflammation (swelling) in osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Osteoarthritis is a degenerative joint disease in which the two ends of the joints come together due to breakdown of a protective covering called cartilage. Rheumatoid arthritis is an auto-immune disease (body's immune system attacks its tissue), leading to joint pain and damage.

FLEXILOR INJECTION 2ML contains 'Lornoxicam' which works by blocking the effect of a chemical messenger known as cyclo-oxygenase (COX) enzyme that makes another chemical prostaglandin. Prostaglandins are produced at the injury site and cause pain and inflammation. By blocking the effect of COX enzymes, lesser prostaglandins are produced. This helps in reducing mild to moderate pain and inflammation at the injured or damaged site.
