Myprodol Tablets are a combination of ibuprofen and paracetamol, two over-the-counter pain relievers. Ibuprofen is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) that works by reducing inflammation and pain. Paracetamol is a pain reliever and fever reducer that works by blocking the production of prostaglandins, which are chemicals that cause pain and inflammation.
Myprodol Tablets are used to relieve mild to moderate pain of inflammatory origin, such as headache, migraine, muscle pain, back pain, menstrual cramps, and toothache. They can also be used to reduce fever.
