Three groups of 20 patients, who suffered of acute pain (dental or low back or menorrhalgia) have been randomized and treated, obtained their informed consent, with meclofenamic acid 100 mg or ketoprofene 50 mg by oral route. The study has been completed double blind to assess the powerful antalgic effect between the two drugs, the results underline that the two NSAID have a very good effect on pain of various nature. The patients have obtained a complete relief not always, but it appears very quickly also by oral route. Statistical analysis has revealed that meclofenamic acid effects are swifter than for ketoprofene, but the latter seems to have a longer action.
