How it works
Paracetamol inhibits the formation of certain natural substances which are responsible for causing pain and inflammation. 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 in relieving pain, swelling, and inflammation associated with muscle spasms.
