Composition

Composition

The active ingredients of Nicip Plus Tablet are Nimesulide 100mg and Paracetamol (also known as Acetaminophen) 500mg.

Mechanism of Action of Drugs

Mechanism of Action of Drugs

Nimesulide acts by targeting several key mediators in the inflammatory process such as Cox-2 mediated prostaglandins, free radicals, a proteolytic enzyme, and histamine. This is how it switches off the activities which cause inflammation, fever, and pain.

On the other hand, Paracetamol (or Acetaminophen) primarily acts as an analgesic and an antipyretic agent. It also possesses anti-inflammatory properties. It produces its analgesic effects by increasing the pain threshold and antipyresis by acting on the hypothalamic heat-regulating center.
