INTRODUCTION

KETOPLAST + contains Ketoprofen which belongs to a group of medicines known as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). It is indicated to treat symptomatic relief of pain and inflammation associated with acute musculoskeletal conditions such as trauma, sprains and contusions, muscle pain, stiffness, joint pain, low back pain.

Ketoprofen is an inhibitor of both the cyclo-oxygenase and lipoxygenase pathways. It is a powerful inhibitor of bradykinin (a chemical mediator of pain and inflammation) which inhibits cyclooxygenase 1 and 2 (COX 1 and COX 2) enzymes reversibly, which decreases the production of pro-inflammatory prostaglandin precursors.

Always use KETOPLAST + as prescribed by your doctor. Before using, tell your doctor if you have any kidney, liver or heart diseases, are pregnant or breastfeeding. It is not suitable for use in children and adolescents below 12 years of age. Do not apply this medicine to injured or infected skin. In case of accidental contact with eyes, mucous membranes, rinse the affected area completely with running water. If the irritation persists, contact your doctor. Avoid exposure to direct sunlight, including solarium, tanning beds or lamps, during the treatment and for two weeks afterwards.
