Monceclo R Capsules
Monceclo R Capsules Description
Monceclo R Cap is used to reduce swelling and pain in bones, joints and muscles. It contains a combination of two medicines, aceclofenac and rabeprazole. Monceclo R Cap works by the combined action

Mode of Action of Monceclo R Capsules
How Does It Work?
- The combination of aceclofenac and rabeprazole is based on the pain killer effect of aceclofenac and the anti-acidity effect of rabeprazole.
- Aceclofenac blocks or inhibits the action of certain chemicals produced in the body, which is responsible for the sensation of pain, swelling and inflammation and thus helps to ease pain and reduce swelling....
- However, the use of aceclofenac has been reported to cause gastric discomfort and acidity. Hence, it is combined with Rabeprazole, a medicine that reduces the amount of acid made by the stomach, thus preventing damage to the stomach. Thus, the combination helps alleviate pain with minimal gastric irritation caused due to aceclofenac alone....
