Flexabenz Spray is a combination of five medicines: Cyclobenzaprine, Diclofenac diethylamine, Methyl Salicylate, Menthol, and Linseed Oil, that are used for pain relief.
Cyclobenzaprine is a muscle relaxant. It works on the centers in the brain and spinal cord to relieve muscle stiffness or spasm without reduction in strength. This improves the pain and movement of muscles.
Diclofenac diethylamine is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) that works by blocking the release of chemical messengers (prostaglandins) that cause pain and inflammation (redness and swelling).
Methyl Salicylate and Menthol are topical analgesics (pain relievers). They work by first cooling the skin and then warming it up. This cooling and warming-up action interferes with the pain signal transmission through nerves.
Linseed Oil decreases swelling through its anti-inflammatory properties.
