Etoricoxib & Thiocolchicoside Tablets - Etuit T is a medication that combines two medications: Etoricoxib (NSAID) and Thiocolchicoside (Muscle relaxant). Etoricoxib inhibits cyclo-oxygenase (COX), an enzyme that produces other chemical messengers called prostaglandins (PG). Less PGs are created when COX enzymes' effects are blocked. This aids in lowering minor to severe pain and swelling at the site of the injury or damage. Thiocolchicoside affects the spinal cord and brain centres. This facilitates better muscular movement and reduces muscle stiffness, which reduces pain brought on by muscle spasms.
Indication and Usage
Etoricoxib & Thiocolchicoside Tablets are part of a class of drugs known as Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs) that are used to treat acute pain, persistent low back pain, muscular spasms, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, gouty arthritis, and ankylosing spondylitis. Uncomfortable bodily sensations are brought on by the neurological system, which also causes pain as a symptom. Muscle spasms are abrupt, involuntary contractions of the muscle that can be uncomfortable and painful.

Etoricoxib: Etoricoxib is a COX-2 inhibitor, which is a form of NSAID. It works by stopping the synthesis of particular chemical messengers that trigger pain and inflammation (redness and swelling).
Thiocolchicoside: Thiocolchicoside is a muscle relaxant that relieves muscle stiffness or spasm without reducing strength by acting on the brain and spinal cord centres. This lessens muscle pain and enhances movement.
