NeoVisc Information :
PRESCRIPTION REQUIRED FOR NEOVISC (Sodium Hyaluronate)
Osteoarthritusis medication NEOVISC (Sodium Hyaluronate) is used to treat knee pain a 1.0% solution of highly purified Sodium Hyaluronate.
Patients with OA typically experience pain and loss of mobility because of changes to the internal environment of the affected joint. NEOVISC (Sodium Hyaluronate) works as a viscosupplement by improving the natural viscosity and elasticity of synovial fluid, thereby increasing lubrication, joint mobility and decreasing pain.
NEOVISC (Sodium Hyaluronate) is administered by your physician through a series of intra-articular injections (injections into the synovial space of the joint). One injection per week for 3 weeks. Onset of symptomatic relief varies from patient to patient depending on severity of OA. Some experience improvement after the second injection of NEOVISC (Sodium Hyaluronate), while optimal results are usually seen 15 to 30 days after the last injection.
It is believed that a course of viscosupplementation with Hyaluronate stimulates cells in joint tissues to produce their own healthy hyaluronate, extending the therapeutic benefit for an average of 6 to 8 months, at which time a repeat course of injections would be administered.
Some patients with more severe disease may gain greater benefit from a series of 5 weekly injections.
NeoVisc Side Effects : Hyaluronate is a natural component of synovial fluid and there have been no significant Hyaluronateside effects attributable to the highly purified Sodium Hyaluronate used in NeoVisc.
However as with any injection should the injected joint remain painful for more than 12 hours or become swollen, contact your physician immediately.
