Anticholinergic action of Camylofin is produced by inhibiting the binding of acetylcholine to muscarinic receptors. Camylofin Direct smooth muscle relaxation is achieved by inhibiting phosphodiesterase type IV, which then leads to increased cyclic AMP and eventually reduced cytosolic calcium, this leads to the controlling of the muscle contractions.

Uses

How it Works

Mefenamic acid works by blocking the effect of natural chemicals called cyclo-oxygenase (COX) enzymes. These enzymes help to make other chemicals in the body, called prostaglandins. Some prostaglandins are produced at sites of injury or damage, and cause pain and inflammation. Mefenamic acid works by blocking the effect of COX enzymes, fewer prostaglandins are produced, which causes pain and inflammation to be eased.
