The action of Dolo-Meta B® can be attributed to its components. Diclofenac sodium is a non-steroidal anti inflammatory agent that possesses analgesic and anti-pyretic activities. It’s mode of action, like that of other nonsteroidal anti inflammatory agent is not known.
However, its therapeutic action is not due to pituitary-adrenal stimulation, but may be from the inhibitory action in the synthesis of pristaglandin. It exhibits very marked anti-rheumatic, anti-inflammatory, analgesic and anti-pyretic properties and is thus suitable for use in inflammatory and degenerative rheumatic disease as well as for the treatment of post-traumatic inflammation and swelling. In patients treated for rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis, the anti-inflammatory action has been shown by reduction in joint swelling, reduction in pain, also reduction in duration of morning stiffness.
Thymine (Vit B1)Vit B12,Pyddoxine (Vit B6) is used in treating neurological symptoms such as peripheral neuritis. Vitamin B1 (Thiamine) is a water soluble vitamin. It is an essential enzyme for carbohydrate metabolism.
Severe Thymine deficiency is characterized by lactic acidosis and neurological deterioration such as peripheral neumpathy, muscle wasting and muscle weakness.
Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine) is also a water soluble vitamin which is involved principally in amino-acid metabolism, but is also involved in carbohydrate and fat metabolism.
Its deficiency may lead to sideroblastic aneamia, dermatitis, cheilosis and neurological symptoms such as peripheral neuritis and convulsions.
Vitamin B12 (Cyanocobalamin) is a water soluble vitamin, occurs in the body mainly as methylcobalamin (mecobalamin) and as adenosylcobafamin (cobamamide).
These act as co-enzyme in nucleic acid synthesis. Deficiency is more likely in patients with malabsorption syndromes or, metabolic disorders.
