HYALGAN (SODIUM HYALURONATE)

Hyalgan Description

When you have had enough of spending money for rubs, salves, patches, and pills to treat painful osteoarthritis, it’s time to talk to your doctor about a prescription for Hyalgan. This injectable medicine is administered by a doctor and usually involves administering it once-a-week for 5 weeks. By the end of this time, you should be able to enjoy as many as 6 months of pain-free mobility. Some treatments have shown to be effective with a 3 week regimen as individual results will vary.

The active ingredient in Hyalgan is Sodium Hyaluronate, it resembles the natural substance in your joints known as synovial fluid that provides lubrication and acts as a shock absorber to protect your joints as they move. Your doctor will administer Hyalgan directly into your knee joint and will instruct you to avoid all strenuous or weight-bearing actions for 48 hours. During this time, Hyalgan will spread around the affected joint and cushion movements to ease your pain and discomfort.

Conditions Treated by Hyalgan

Osteoarthritis (OA) is a condition that can occur during middle age and cause pain and swelling due to the wear and tear of the cartilage that normally allows your bones to slide over one another without friction. A membrane that surrounds each joint is called the synovium and it is responsible for producing synovial fluid that moves into your cartilage when joints are at rest. When the joint is in motion, this fluid moves out to the joint capsule to provide smooth movements.

There is no cure for arthritis, but there are many medications available to relieve your pain and inflammation. Hyalgan is prescribed once you have tried other drugs for relief but they have failed to be effective. Your doctor may suggest you continue to take inflammatory or pain relievers during the treatment with Hyalgan or during the 6 month period after treatment ends.

Before Hyalgan is Administered

Explain other medical conditions you have and list any OTC or Rx drugs you currently take or use, including complementary and alternative meds so your doctor can determine if Hyalgan is right for you. Your treatment with Hyalgan may be delayed if you have any infections or skin diseases around the area that the injection is to be administered.

Warnings for Hyalgan

Hyalgan is mainly formulated with a natural and highly purified Sodium Hyaluronate that comes from rooster combs so if you are sensitive or allergic to avian proteins, feathers, and other egg products, inform your doctor right away before having Hyalgan administered. As osteoarthritis is a chronic and degenerative condition, you may require further treatments so discuss this with your doctor.
