About Nucoxia Relax Tablet 10's

Nucoxia Relax Tablet 10's belongs to a group of medicines called Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAID's) used for the treatment of osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, gouty arthritis and ankylosing spondylitis, acute pain, chronic low back pain and muscle spasms. 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.

Nucoxia Relax Tablet 10's is a combination of two drugs: Etoricoxib (NSAID) and Thiocolchicoside (Muscle relaxant). Etoricoxib blocks the effect of a chemical messenger known as cyclo-oxygenase (COX) enzyme that makes other chemical prostaglandins (PG). By blocking the effect of COX enzymes, lesser PGs are produced. This helps in reducing mild to moderate pain and inflammation at the injured or damaged site. Thiocolchicoside works on the centres of the spinal cord and brain. This helps relieve muscle stiffness and improves muscle movements, thereby helping relieve pain due to muscle spasms.
