About Ortho Senz Ointment 30 gm

Ortho Senz Ointment 30 gm is a combination medicine used to relieve pain. It helps treat muscle and joint pain, arthritis pain, and pain due to nerve damage (neuropathic pain). Pain is a symptom triggered by the nervous system, causing uncomfortable sensations in the body.

Ortho Senz Ointment 30 gm consists of Gabapentin, Diclofenac diethylamine, and Methyl salicylate. Gabapentin is an anti-epileptic agent that alters the way the nerves send messages to the brain, thus relieving pain. Diclofenac diethylamine is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) that works by blocking the release of certain chemical substances, such as prostaglandins and leukotrienes that cause pain and swelling. Methyl salicylate is a topical rubefacient that temporarily relieves muscle or joint pain caused by strains and sprains.

Patients Concern

Disease/Condition Glossary

Pain: It is not a disease but a symptom triggered by the nervous system, causing uncomfortable sensations in the body. Pain may be dull or sharp; it might be constant or come and go. The tolerance level of pain might vary from person to person. Pain can be generalized (overall body aches) or localized (affecting a specific area of the body).

Neuropathic pain: Neuropathic pain is caused due to damaged sensory nerves. It is caused by chronic progressive nerve disease or due to infection or injury. A feeling of numbness and loss of sensations is common with neuropathic pain. Usually, the body sends the pain signals when there is an injury, but with neuropathic pain, the pain is not triggered by an injury; the body unpromptedly sends the pain signals. Symptoms include spontaneous, untriggered pain, unpleasant feeling, shooting, burning or stabbing pain, difficulty resting or sleeping, and evoked pain (pain caused by events that are usually not painful).

Osteoarthritis: It is a degenerative joint disease in which the two ends of the joints come together due to the breakdown of a protective covering called cartilage. Due to the absence of this protective covering, the joints rub against each other, leading to pain and stiffness. Symptoms of osteoarthritis include pain, inflammation, stiffness, and tenderness.
