DESCRIPTION:
Pacadon Aktiv Gel is a topical anti-inflammatory gel. The effectiveness of the gel is due to the active ingredient, Diclofenac Diethylamine, which blocks prostaglandin synthesis in the hypothalamus via inhibition of cyclo-oxygenase and limits the production of prostaglandins involved in the inflammatory response. After topical application Diclofenac achieves peak plasma concentration in approximately 1-2 hours. It is eliminated through urinary and biliary excretion. Oleum lini is an anti inflammatory agent which reduces inflammation. Methyl Salicylate acts as a rubefacient which relieves pain and Menthol acts as a cooling agent.
