STARNAC-MR Tablets

The Trio that Provides Complete Pain Relief 

COMPOSITION – Aceclofenac 100 mg + Paracetamol 325 mg + Chlorzoxazone 250 mg

Aceclofenac (Belongs to BCS Class II)

  • A non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug that exhibits higher anti-inflammatory action than conventional NSAIDS.
  • Blocks the action of cyclo-oxygenase, involved in the production of prostaglandins and reduces pain, swelling and inflammation.
  • Paracetamol (Aniline analgesic)
  • Mild painkiller (analgesic) and reduces the temperature of patients with fever (antipyretic).
  • Demonstrated therapeutic efficacy on both acute and chronic pain and consistently associated with a better gastrointestinal safety profile than NSAIDs.
  • Chlorzoxazone (1,3-benzoxazoles)
  • Indicated for the symptomatic treatment of muscle spasms and pain associated with acute musculoskeletal conditions. 
  • Acts on the spinal cord and subcortical areas of the brain to inhibit polysynaptic reflex arcs involved in causing and maintaining skeletal muscle spasms.

METHOD OF ACTION

  • Aceclofenac works by blocking the action of a substance in the body called cyclooxygenase.
  • Paracetamol has a central analgesic effect that is mediated through activation of descending serotonergic pathways (regulation of prolactin secretion).
  • Chlorzoxazone acts primarily at the level of the spinal cord & sub cortical areas of the brain to inhibit multisynaptic reflex action and maintain skeletal muscle spasm of varied etiology.

COMBINATION

  • The combination of aceclofenac, paracetamol and chlorzoxazone is emerging as one of the widely prescribed combination in single dosage form.
