Nimesulide is a COX 2 selective NSAID (Non steroidal anti inflammatory drug) which has analgesic (pain killing) and antipyretic(lowering temperature) properties. It is useful in acute pains as the onset of action is rapid. It is used in adults for treatment of osteoarthritis, dysmenorrhoea and other conditions involving acute pain

Nimesulide has the common side effects of NSAIDs like diarrhoea,rashes,vomiting etc and it is hepatotoxic. EMA(European medicines agency )has confirmed that benefits outweigh risks in the use of Nimesulide it is considered better not to be given to children.There are drugs like Combiflam can be effective in relieving pain in children though always take a physician's advice before giving any drug

I do not know about the chemical content of this medicine but I knew this years ago that the medicine 'Nise' is banned worldwide except in few Asian countries like India and Pakistan.
Since I cannot post any external link here so I am unable to give the exact reference here. you can search online on google about the same and you would come to know why it has been banned now in India and much before around the world.
