Preservex (Aceclofenac) is a prescription medication used to reduce swelling and relieve pain and inflammation in adults with osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, or ankylosing spondylitis. Osteoarthritis is an inflammation of the joints, common in patients over the age of 50. Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune response that causes long-term inflammation of the joints. Ankylosing spondylitis is the inflammation of the spine, leading to the joints fusing. The active ingredient in Preservex is Aceclofenac. Aceclofenac belongs to a class of medications known as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). It works by blocking the production of hormone-like substances called prostaglandins. Prostaglandins are produced at sites of damage or injury, causing pain and inflammation. Blocking the production of prostaglandins results in pain and inflammation relief.
We currently offer generic Aceclofenac from the United Kingdom in the strength of 100mg tablets. The brand Preservex is not available.
