How does Benzydamine work?
Benzydamine hydrochloride is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory, derived from imidazole, indicated for systemic or topical use. Because it is not steroid, it does not exhibit the adverse effects characteristic of these compounds.Benzydamine hydrochloride belongs to primary anti-inflammatory drugs because it inhibits inflammatory processes more with local mechanisms than with systemic ones.
It accumulates, preferentially, in the inflamed tissues and their effects are manifested only in organs altered pathologically. Benzydamine hydrochloride has analgesic efficacy and local anesthetic.
