How does Aceclofenac work?
- Aceclofenac is a non-steroid anti-inflammatory (NSAID) drug like diclofenac, analgesic (pain reliever) and anti-pyretic (reduces fever).
- Aceclofenac increases glycosaminoglycans (GAG) synthesis, which helps in repair and regeneration of articular cartilage.
- Aceclofenac blocks the action of a substance in the body called cyclo-oxygenase (COX). Cyclo-oxygenase helps to produce various chemicals in the body, some of which are known as prostaglandins. Prostaglandins are produced by the body in response to injury and certain diseases and conditions, and cause pain, swelling and inflammation. Aceclofenac blocks the production of prostaglandins and helps reduce inflammation and pain.
