About INFEN P TABLET 10'S

INFEN P TABLET 10'S belongs to the group of medications called NSAID's (Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs) primarily used to relieve mild to moderate pain and inflammation in conditions like musculo-skeletal pain, painful periods (dysmenorrhoea), toothache, etc. It is also used to relieve pain associated with surgeries, migraines (like a headache) and knee pain. Pain is a symptom triggered by the nervous system, which causes uncomfortable sensations in the body. Pain can cause inflammation, redness, swelling and fever. 

INFEN P TABLET 10'S contains ‘Dexketoprofen’ which works by blocking the effect of a chemical messenger in your body, known as cyclo-oxygenase (COX) enzymes that make another chemical 'prostaglandins' (PG). These prostaglandins are produced at injury sites and cause pain and swelling. By blocking the effect of COX enzymes, fewer PGs are produced, which reduces mild to moderate pain and inflammation at the injured or damaged site.
