How it works
Lornoxicam works by blocking the production of certain substances that send pain signals to the brain. Thiocolchicoside works by interacting with certain specific receptors in the central nervous system to prevent muscle contractions and relieve muscle spasms. The combination is thus effective for the treatment of acute painful musculoskeletal conditions.
