What’s covered?

Ibuprofen lysine is the active component in Feminax Express 342mg tablets. Ibuprofen is classified as a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medication (NSAID). It acts by inhibiting the function of cyclo-oxygenase (COX), a body enzyme.

COX is involved in the production of prostaglandins in the body in reaction to damage and some illnesses and disorders. Prostaglandins are responsible for pain, oedema, and inflammation. Ibuprofen lysine decreases inflammation and discomfort by lowering prostaglandin synthesis.

Moreover, ibuprofen relieves period pain by inhibiting the formation of prostaglandins. These substances cause the womb to contract during a woman's menstruation. Fever is also lowered by lowering prostaglandins in the brain, which cause the body temperature to rise when activity in that part of the brain increases.

Read on to learn what's in Feminax, how it can relieve pain, its possible side effects, and how to take it.
