Meloxicon Plus Injection

Composition

Each ml contains
Meloxicam BP – 5 mg.
Paracetamol IP – 150mg.

Mode of Action

Meloxicon Plus is non – steroidal anti – inflammatory drug (NSAID) of the oxicam class which inhibits the synthesis of prostaglandin PGE2 by more selectively inhibiting the inducible cyclo – oxygenase (Cox 2) enzyme, thereby exerting anti – inflammatory, anti – exudative, analgesic and anti – pyretic effects. Meloxicam has also shown to inhibit production of thromboxane B2 induced by intravenous E-coli endotoxin administration in calves. Paracetamol is used for the relief of pains associated with many parts of the body. It has analgesic properties comparable to those of aspirin while its anti-inflammatory effects are weaker.
