How Cyclopam Plus Tablet works

Cyclopam Plus Tablet is a combination of three medicines: Dicyclomine, Paracetamol and Mefenamic Acid which relieve abdominal pain. Dicyclomine is an anticholinergic. It works by relaxing the muscles in your stomach and gut (intestine). It stops sudden muscle contractions (spasms). By doing this, it relieves cramps, pain, bloating, and discomfort. Paracetamol is an antipyretic (fever reducer) and mefenamic acid is a non-steroidal antiinflammatory drug (NSAID). They work by blocking the release of certain chemical messengers that cause pain and inflammation (redness and swelling).
