Do I need Prescription?

Chemical Composition

It has three main components that include:

  • Aceclofenac (100mg),
  • Paracetamol / Acetaminophen (15mg) and
  • Serratiopeptidase (325mg).

Mechanism of Action (MOA)

Aceclofenac is classified under non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). Paracetamol / Acetaminophen works as antipyretic, which means, they reduce or relieve fever in the body. These drugs work by interfering and blocking the production of some chemicals that are responsible for pain and fever in the body. Serratiopeptidase is an enzyme obtained from silkworm that is used to synthesize all unwanted proteins that are produced at the site of injury and by so doing, it relieves pain and improves healing especially at the site of injury of inflammation.

Paracetamol works by altering the function of brain “thermostat” that regulates body temperature, hence controlling fever. In relief of pain, Zerodol SP works by increasing the threshold of perception of pain and increased the flow of blood in the skin, helping in the dissipation of heat. The drug also blocks synthesis of proglanditin which produces cyclo-oxygenase in the body.
