CHLORZOXAZONE+IBUPROFEN+PARACETAMOL belongs to the class of drugs known as 'non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug' (NSAID). CHLORZOXAZONE+IBUPROFEN+PARACETAMOL is used in the reduction of musculoskeletal pain and muscle spasm due to tissue injury, resolution of post surgery inflammation and oedema (swollen tissue with fluid). Pain can be temporary (acute) or long term (chronic) in nature. Musculoskeletal pain can be caused due to soft tissues (muscle, tendon or ligaments) injury. Extreme tissue pain and inflammation caused due to sprains, strains or trauma or post-surgery may require a prolonged amount of time to heal.
CHLORZOXAZONE+IBUPROFEN+PARACETAMOL contains Ibuprofen, Paracetamol and Chlorzoxazone. Ibuprofen is known to have an analgesic and anti-inflammatory effect for reducing mild to moderate pain.

Paracetamol acts as a mild analgesic (mild pain reducer) and antipyretic (fever reducer) which enhances the pain relief action of Ibuprofen. Chlorzoxazone is a muscle relaxant, helps by blocking nerve impulses or pain sensations sent by the brain and causes relaxation of muscles.
