How it works
Aceclofenac works by reducing the formation of certain substances in the body that causes pain and swelling. Paracetamol increases the pain threshold and decreases swelling. Trypsin chymotrypsin accelerates the tissue recovery process in the affected area. Thus, this combination is better effective in treating pain and inflammatory conditions.
