Idrocilamide (trade names Talval, Srilane, Relaxnova, Brolitène[1]) is a medication with skeletal muscle relaxant[2] and anti-inflammatory actions[3] used as a topical cream to treat lumbago and other kinds of muscular pain;[4] it is available on prescription or over-the-counter[citation needed] in France and various other countries.[1]


Idrocilamide has been reported to be a potent inhibitor of the metabolism of caffeine.[5][6]
