Description

NEXT ACTIVEGEL Pharmacodynamics
NEXT ACTIVEGEL is a combination of two active substances – ibuprofen and levomenthol.
Ibuprofen is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agent, a derivative of propionic acid, non-selectively blocks cyclooxygenase 1 (COX-1) and cyclooxygenase 2 (COX-2) enzymes, thus inhibiting the synthesis of prostaglandins – mediators of pain, inflammation and hyperthermia. When used topically, ibuprofen has analgesic, anti-inflammatory and anti-edema effects (reduces exudation and edema due to inflammation).
Levomenthol has a local irritant effect, which determines the rapid development of the analgesic effect of the drug.
The combination of ibuprofen and levomenthol reduces pain and inflammation, is effective for pain in the joints when moving and at rest, reduces morning stiffness of the joints.
