Droact-MF is a combination of two medicines that have drotaverine hydrochloride, an antispasmodic medication, and mefenamic acid, a NSAID (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug). This combination is effective to treat various ailments, which include abdominal pain, muscle pain, migraine headache, functional bowel disorders, dysmenorrhea (menstrual cramps), heavy bleeding during periods, renal colic pain, and pain after surgery. Pain is a symptom triggered by the nervous system, causing uncomfortable sensations in the body.
Drotaverine relieves smooth muscle spasms and corrects the body’s calcium levels by inhibiting calcium reuptake by cells in the body. Mefenamic acid functions by preventing the action of chemical messengers at the wounded or damaged location that induce pain and inflammation.
