How Oxalgin Capsule works

Oxalgin MR 50 mg/4 mg Capsule is a combination of two medicines: Thiocolchicoside and Diclofenac, which relieve pain and relax the muscles. Thiocolchicoside is a muscle relaxant. It works on the centres in the brain and spinal cord to relieve muscle stiffness or spasm and to improve pain and movement of muscles. Diclofenac is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) which works by blocking the release of certain chemical messengers that cause pain and inflammation (redness and swelling).
