About LUPIFLEX 4MG TABLET

LUPIFLEX 4MG TABLET belongs to a group of medicines called pain killer/Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs) used for the treatment of osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, gouty arthritis and ankylosing spondylitis, acute pain, chronic low back pain, and muscle spasms. It relieves the pain and relaxes the muscles. Pain is a symptom triggered by the nervous system, causing uncomfortable sensations in the body. Muscle spasm is the sudden involuntary contractions of the muscle, which can be painful and uncomfortable.

LUPIFLEX 4MG TABLET is a combination of two drugs: Ketoprofen (NSAID) and Thiocolchicoside (Muscle relaxant).
