ORUVAIL GEL (KETOPROFEN)

Description of Oruvail Gel

Oruvail Gel’s active ingredient is a non-steroidal anti inflammatory drug (NSAID) that your doctor may recommend for pain relief from arthritis, sprains, strains, or sports injuries that do not involve open wounds or broken skin. The gel formulation is ideal for applying to hairy skin areas and sprains that are tender to touch and will dry into a thin, greaseless, and non-staining film because of its alcohol base. If you have arthritis pain in your hands, Oruvail Gel or generic Ketoprofen is much easier to apply than thicker formulas that you have to keep rubbing in. The generic alternative is not manufactured by the company that makes the brand product.

Block the Action of Certain Enzymes for Relief from Pain and Inflammation

Once you have applied Oruvail Gel to the affected or injured area, it is absorbed into your skin cells where the effects of Ketoprofen blocks the action of certain enzymes called cyclo-oxygenase, or COX. There are two types of COX. COX-1 can be found in your stomach, blood platelets, and blood vessels and helps to maintain a healthy stomach lining. COX-2 is found at the site of inflammation.

By blocking the effects of COX, your body reduces the amount of inflammatory chemicals that are produced and sent in response to an injury. The result is less inflammation, pain, and swelling so you can find relief and rest or you can now carry on with your daily tasks with ease.

Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid Arthritis Information

Osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis are the most common types of arthritis and have been a leading cause of disability for US adults for the past 15 years. While osteoarthritis can develop as you reach your mid to late 40’s, it is not unusual for it to occur earlier. Your weight, your job or physical activities, genetics, and having some other form of arthritis increases your risk of osteoarthritis and the deep, aching pain as you move, loss of joint flexibility, and enlarged finger joints .

Rheumatoid arthritis is a painful and disabling condition that is said to be an autoimmune disease. This means that, for whatever reason, your immune system is stuck in the ‘ON’ position and believes your body is under threat. This causes an immune response that sends prostaglandins and other chemicals to your joints where the cartilage and bone around your joints are attacked and damaged, most commonly affecting your hands, wrists, and feet.

Before Oruvail Gel is Prescribed

If you are still child bearing age, ask your doctor about the safety of using Oruvail Gel if you are pregnant, may become pregnant, or are nursing. Disclose other medical conditions and allergies you have and list any OTC or Rx drugs you take, including herbal preparations and dietary or vitamin supplements so your doctor can determine if Oruvail Gel is right for you.

Oruvail Gel Precautions

Do not apply Oruvail Gel to any areas with broken skin or possible infection. Your skin may be more sensitive to exposure to sunlight so wear clothing that will cover exposed skin when you go outdoors. Keep Oruvail Gel away from your eyes, mouth, inside your nose, and genitals. Do not apply Oruvail Gel around an open flame as it does contain alcohol. There is no cure for arthritis, but Oruvail Gel can provide relief. Never store any medications within a child’s reach or share them with anyone else.
