Diclofenac-Acrihin Pharmacodynamics
The active ingredient diclofenac is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) with pronounced analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties. By indiscriminately inhibiting cyclooxygenase type 1 and 2, it disrupts the metabolism of arachidonic acid and the synthesis of prostaglandins, which are the main link in the development of inflammation.
Diclofenac-Acri is used to eliminate pain syndrome and reduce swelling associated with inflammation. When used topically, it relieves or eliminates joint pain at rest and on the move. It reduces morning stiffness and swelling of joints, helps to increase range of motion.
