Rofact MR Tablet is a combination of two medicines: Rofecoxib and Tizanidine, which relieves pain and relaxes the muscles. Rofecoxib 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).
