Nimesil is a medicine of General action containing non-steroidal anti-inflammatory active substance - nimesulide (the only representative of the class of sulfonanilide). has anti-inflammatory, analgesic and antipyretic activity. Nimesulide prevents the synthesis of prostaglandins, substances that play a significant role in the development of inflammation.

Effect of nimesulide is primarily in the suppression of the activity of cyclooxygenase, mainly cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) and to a small extent cyclooxygenase-1 (COX-1). These enzymes take part in reactions leading to the formation of prostaglandins from lipids of cell membranes.

in addition, nimesulide fully inhibits the action of other mediators of inflammation. Has no antimicrobial activity. It is well absorbed in the gastrointestinal tract, therefore, is characterized by a very rapid analgesic effect, which begins 15 minutes after oral administration. The maximum concentration in the blood is achieved through 60-90 minutes after ingestion. Nimesulide passes through the placenta and in breast milk of women.
