Niflumic acid is a drug used for joint and muscular pain. It is categorized as an inhibitor of cyclooxygenase-2. In experimental biology, it has been employed to inhibit chloride channels.[2] It has also been reported to act on GABA-A[3] and NMDA channels[4] and to block T-type calcium channels.[5]
