More Info on Arthrotec Indications
How Does It Work?Arthrotec combines two different medications that work in different ways. Diclofenac sodium, the pain-relieving component, works by blocking the production of prostaglandins, which are hormone-like substances in the body that cause inflammation and pain. By blocking the production of prostaglandins, diclofenac can reduce pain, inflammation, and joint swelling associated with arthritis.
Misoprostol, the other component, is a type of prostaglandin. It works by decreasing stomach acid secretion and protecting the lining of the stomach from stomach acid and other harmful substances.
