DESCRIPTION:
Mef Spas is a combination of Mefenamic Acid which is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug and Dicyclomine Hydrochloride is an antispasmodic and anticholinergic (antimuscarinic) agent.
 
MECHANISM OF ACTION:
Mefenamic Acid inhibits the enzymes cyclooxygenase COX-1 and COX-2 and reduces the formation of prostaglandins and leukotrienes. It also acts as an antagonist at prostaglandin receptor sites. It has analgesic and antipyretic properties with minor anti-inflammatory activity. Dicyclomine relieves muscle spasms and cramping in the gastrointestinal tract by blocking the activity of acetylcholine on cholinergic (or muscarinic) receptors on the surface of muscle cells.
