Neurogesic

DESCRIPTION
NeuroGesic® is a greaseless and stainless ointment containing 15% Methylsalicylate and 5% Menthol. Due to its very powerful and deep penetrating active ingredients, NeuroGesic® is a very fast acting and efficient counter irritant and analgesic preparation.

MECHANISM OF ACTION
In addition to the inhibitory action of Methylsalicylate on prostaglandin biosynthesis, the mechanism of action of salicylates in Rheumatic disease, may also involve effects on other cellular immunological processes in mesenchymal and connective tissues. Methylsalicylate acts by inhibiting the action of cyclo-oxygenase enzyme which is the main enzymes responsible for the production of prostaglandins from fatty acids.

Fatty acids in all somatic cells and PG's have been implicated in the production of pains. The Menthol provides a soothing relief to sore and aching muscles. Menthol when applied to the skin causes dilation of the blood vessels, causing a sensation of coldness, followed by analgesic effect; it also relieves itching in pruritis and urticaria.
