About Volitra Gel 30g

Volitra Gel 30g belongs to the class of medications called 'Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs' (NSAID) used to relieve pain and inflammation associated with musculoskeletal disorders, strain, sprain, arthritis and low back pain. Musculoskeletal pain could occur due to arthritis, osteoporosis, fractures, dislocations, problems with the bone structure or injury to the bones, joints, tendons, muscles and ligaments. Osteoarthritis is a joint disease in which the two ends of the joints come together due to breakdown of a protective covering called cartilage. 

Volitra Gel 30g contains Diclofenac, Capsaicin, Methyl salicylate, Linseed, and Menthol. Diclofenac and Methyl salicylate are pain killers which work by blocking the effect of chemical messengers that cause pain and inflammation. Capsaicin is a natural extract of chilli pepper which work by blocking the pain messengers to the nerves. Linseed oil possesses anti-inflammatory properties which inhibits inflammatory mediators like leukotrienes (LK), thereby reducing inflammation. Menthol is a soothing and cooling agent which provides a cooling sensation by dilating the blood vessels, followed by an analgesic effect. It also enhances the penetration of drugs. Together, Volitra Gel 30g helps provide relief from mild to moderate pain in various types of musculoskeletal and joint conditions. 

Volitra Gel 30g is for external use only. Take pea-sized amount onto your fingers and apply it on the affected areas. You are advised to use Volitra Gel 30g for as long as your doctor has prescribed it for you depending on your medical condition.

Most of these side-effects do not require medical attention and will resolve gradually over time. However, you are advised to talk to your doctor if you experience these side-effects persistently.

Uses of Volitra Gel 30g

Musculoskeletal pain and inflammation 

Medicinal Benefits

Volitra Gel 30g is a combination of five drugs: Diclofenac, Capsaicin, Methyl salicylate, Linseed, and Menthol. Volitra Gel 30g is used to relieve pain and inflammation associated with musculoskeletal disorders, strain, sprain, arthritis, and low back pain. Diclofenac and Methyl salicylate work by blocking the effect of a chemical messenger known as cyclo-oxygenase (COX) enzymes that make other chemical prostaglandins. By blocking the COX enzyme's effect, lesser prostaglandins are produced, which reduces mild to moderate pain and inflammation at the injured or damaged site. Capsaicin exerts an analgesic effect by blocking the pain messengers to the nerves. Linseed oil helps in reducing inflammation. Menthol provides a cooling sensation by dilating the blood vessels, followed by an analgesic effect. It also enhances the penetration of drugs. Together, Volitra Gel 30g helps in providing relief from pain and inflammation.

Symptoms of musculoskeletal pain include stiffness, swelling, redness, weakness, muscle spasms or twitching, trouble moving the affected area, soreness, cracking or popping sound at the joints.
