Ketoprofen has anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects.

Ketoprofen, contained in the corresponding fillers, reaches the inflammatory zone through the skin and thus provides the possibility of local treatment of painful lesions of the joints, tendons, ligaments and muscles.

The absorption of the drug applied to the skin into the general bloodstream is very slow. When applied from 50 to 150 mg of ketoprofen, the concentration of the active substance in the blood plasma after 5-8 hours is only 0.08-0.15 μg / ml.

Post-traumatic pain in muscles and joints, inflammation of the tendons.
