RAPISONE SR CAPSULE contains Eperisone, which belongs to the group of medicines called Muscle Relaxants. It is used to treat and improve the myotonic condition of the muscles caused by neck-shoulder arm syndrome (a condition causing muscle pain and stiffness in the neck, arm, and shoulder region), scapulohumeral periarthritis (a condition causing muscle pain and stiffness in the shoulder joint), and low back pain (a painful condition affecting the lower region of the spine due to a muscle or ligament injury).
The myotonic condition causes wasting and weakness of the muscle when its functional ability to relax is impaired.
