Each NEEPS tablet contains nimesulide 100mg and paracetamol 325mg.
NEEPS tablet is the brand name for the anti-inflammatory and analgesic combination of paracetamol and nimesulide. This combination addresses mild to moderate pain associated with the inflammation. Nimesulide addresses both the inflammation and its symptoms while paracetamol exclusively addresses the symptoms of inflammation.
Nimesulide is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) that works by blocking the activity of the enzyme - cyclooxygenase or prostaglandin synthetase, which synthesizes prostaglandins from arachidonic acid. Nimesulide also interferes with the production of other inflammatory mediators such as free-radicals, histamine and proteolytic enzymes and suppresses their activity.
Paracetamol belongs to the class of analgesics. It works by increasing the pain threshold, increasing the blood flow across the skin and bringing about heat loss and sweating. This drug acts on the hypothalamic heat-regulating center in the brain during the fever.
