How Zoldex Tablet works

Zoldex Tablet is a combination of two pain relievers (Diclofenac and Paracetamol) and a muscle relaxant (Dextropropoxyphene). The pain relievers work by blocking the release of certain chemical messengers in the brain that cause pain and inflammation (redness and selling). The muscle relaxant works by blocking transmission of pain signals to the brain to lower pain perception.
