Serratiopeptidase in form of CIPZEN 10 mg was prescribed to me for sports injury with severe inflammation of thumb. With just one tablet, it lead to intense acidity despite the antacid with the dose. According to wikipedia, there aren't any randomised clinical trails that prove the efficacy of this proteolytic for the treatment of inflammation.
