Movidase-D 50/400 is a combination of Diclofenac Potassium & Metaxalone Tablets and is used in providing relief from pain due to muscle spasms. Diclofenac works by blocking the effect of a chemical messenger in your body, known as cyclo-oxygenase enzymes that make another chemical ‘prostaglandins’. These prostaglandins are produced at injury sites and cause pain and swelling. By blocking their effect, lesser PGs are produced, which reduces mild to moderate pain and inflammation at the injured or damaged site. Metaxalone works on the centers of the spinal cord and brain, thereby helping in maintaining muscle strength and relieving muscle spasms or stiffness.
