Drotaverine is a spasmolytic agent which helps in smooth muscle relaxation.

Aceclofenac is a derivative of phenylacetic acid that withholds the participation of Cyclooxygenase compound. Cyclooxygenase is an enzyme that is responsible for the formation of prostanoids including thromboxane and prostaglandins. Prostaglandins are compounds responsible for causing the pain, fever, swelling, and redness. Thus with this mechanism, pain causing factors are eliminated.
