Phenylbutazone is a non-spheroidal anti-inflammatory medication having fast-acting analgesic and antipyretic characteristics. It is well absorbed through the gastrointestinal tract, reaching therapeutic levels within 2 hours, and its impact lasts for around 2 hours.
Phenylbutazone’s Mechanism of Action:
Its capacity to inhibit cyclooxygenases, progenitors in the creation of thromboxane’s and prostaglandin, the most important mediator in the amplification of pain, distinguishes it. Dexamethasone inhibits prostaglandin generation by stabilizing the cell and lysosomal membrane, suppressing the inflammatory response of injured tissue. On the other hand, it preserves the integrity of the capillary cell wall, preventing fluid and plasma protein extravasation into the afflicted tissue and thereby significantly lowering edema.
