FINALGON OINTMENT - 20G. RHEUMATISM MUSCLE JOINT PAIN ARTHRITIS MYAGLA
Finalgon is a combined medication for local application with local irritative action. Nonivamide is synthetic analogue of capsaicin that possesses analgesic properties. The analgesic effect is associated with the affection of nociceptor C-fibers and A-delta-nervous fibers. Nicoboxil exerts direct vasodilative action. Finalgon exerts hyperemia of the skin, accelerates fermentative reactions, activates the metabolism. Finalgon works by increasing blood circulation to the area of application, hence promoting localised warmth and heat to relieve pain. The warming reaction to Finalgon occurs within a few minutes after application and reaches a peak within 20 to 30 minutes.
If you find that Finalgon is too strong for you it can be removed using a cloth soaked in vegetable oil or margarine. Always test a small area first.
Apply a small amount to a test area first in order to evaluate your response to the heat produced. Then apply to the affected area.
