Mechanism of Action
In Nuberol Forte, the combined analgesic effect of Paracetamol and the muscle relaxant action of Orphenadrine Citrate provides in-depth relief from pain associated with Skeletal muscle Spasm.
Paracetamol possess analgesic and antipyretic actions similar to those of the salicylates. Analgesia is mediated peripherally and also centrally.
Orphenadrine Citrate is an orally effective muscle relaxant. Muscle relaxation is not due to a direct action on the muscle itself; rather the site of action of Orphenadrine Citrate is central. Orphenadrine is readily absorbed from the gastro-mtestinal tract and is almost completely metabolized to at least 8 metabolites.
It is mainly excreted in the urine as metabolites and unchanged drug.
For the relief of painful skeletal muscle spasm associated with chronic low back pain, sprains, strains, prolapsed intervertebral disc, muscle injury, non-articular rheumatism, tension headache, dysmenorrhea and other acute or chronic painful muscular conditions.
