Maxit 50 Tablets


How Maxit Works?

Maxit (Diclofenac Potassium) is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) with pronounced analgesic, antipyretic and anti-inflammatory properties. It is an inhibitor of cyclooxygenase. Maxit is readily absorbed after administration and acts by inhibiting prostaglandin biosynthesis, which plays a major role in causing inflammation, pain and fever. Maxit has been formulated to make available the well-established pharmacotherapeutic effects of diclofenac potassium.
