Norflex is a skeletal muscle relaxant used to relieve pain and muscle spasms associated with acute musculoskeletal conditions.
Orphenadrine citrate is a monomethylated derivative of diphenhydramine that inhibits sodium channels to provide analgesic effects. Norflex also acts on various other targets including muscarinic, histaminic, and specific glutamate receptors to help relax muscles and relieve pain.
This muscle relaxant offers antinociceptive effects that help reduce pain and muscle spasms caused by Parkinson’s disease and other musculoskeletal diseases. Norflex is generally well-tolerated and has proven to be an effective method for relieving musculoskeletal pain and discomfort.
