Tizpa D Tablet is a combination of two medicines: Diclofenac and Tizanidine, which relieve pain and relax the 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). Tizanidine 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.
Taking diclofenac with alcohol can increase your risk of stomach bleeding.
