Phenazone is used for the relief of mild to moderate pain in conditions such as headache (including migraine), joint pain, pain during menstruation, fever, cold and flu.
How it works
Phenazone belongs to class of medications called painkiller and antipyretics (fever reducing). Phenazone reduces pain by increasing the pain threshold. It reduces fever by acting on the temperature-regulating region of brain, resulting in increased blood flow across the skin, sweating and heat loss.
