Novodec Injection is a combination of three medicines: Diclofenac, Paracetamol / Acetaminophen and Dextropropoxyphene which relieve pain. Diclofenac and Paracetamol / Acetaminophen work by blocking the release of certain chemical messengers in the brain that are responsible for pain. Dextropropoxyphene works by blocking transmission of pain signals to the brain to lower pain perception.
Taking Diclofenac+Paracetamol / Acetaminophen+Dextropropoxyphene with alcohol can cause liver damage.
