pharmachologic effect

Being a derivative of enolic acid, movalis has
antipyretic, anti-inflammatory and analgesic effect,
which are due to the ability of meloxicam to inhibit
the formation of inflammatory mediators called prostaglandins.
The peculiarity of the drug is the most depressing effect.
on the synthesis of prostaglandins in the focus of inflammation, whereas
other NSAIDs have the same effect in the inflammatory focus, and
in the stomach and in the kidneys.

Such directed action is associated with more selective
suppression of COX-2, rather than COX-1. Inhibition of COX-2 determines
therapeutic effect of NSAIDs, and the suppression of the COX-1 isoenzyme,
present in the body constantly, responsible for
negative effects on the part of the kidneys and stomach characteristic of
this group of drugs.

The selective effect of meloxicam on COX-2 is repeatedly
it is confirmed as in test systems, as on live organisms. AT
Unlike popular drugs such as indomethacin, ibuprofen,
naproxen and diclofenac, meloxicam in therapeutic doses not
enhances platelet aggregation and does not lengthen the period

Movalis or diclofenac?

Both the first and second means are the drug of choice for
relief of symptoms accompanying diseases of the joints. Both
drug are representatives of one group – NSAIDs, with the reservation
that movalis has a selective action and a valid basis
they are different.

On сегодняшний день мовалис считается самым удачным конкурентом
diclofenac, with a more pronounced therapeutic effect, better
portability, less likely and less pronounced
side effects. Movalis quickly reduces the severity of pain
syndrome, therefore, will require a shorter treatment regimen than

Meanwhile, choosing between expensive movalis and cheap
Diclofenac patients often choose the last of the economic
considerations. With good health and sporadic
use of the drug from the group of NSAIDs may be justified. If a
there are risks of complications and undesirable effects, and to treatment
have to resort often, it is better not to save on health,
more that the relief of syndromes with movalis will require
shorter treatment regimens than diclofenac.

In any case, the decision on treatment is taken by the doctor and determines
which is better in a particular clinical case.
