Brief Answer:
Its not a pain killer its a anxiolytic.

Detailed Answer:
Welcome to health care magic, I share your concern and I will try to help you out in best possible way.
Trika is an anxiolytic which causes sleep, hence its not very effective in reducing pain. Instead, you can give her Tab. etoricoxib 90 mg twice daily for a week. this tablet is very effective in joint pains and causes least of side effects like gastritis, hence best suited to your mother. wishing good health.
I hope this helps you
