MOHRUS Paps XR 120 mg for pain and swelling (ketoprofen, plaster, tape)
What are MOHRUS Paps XR 120 mg for pain and swelling (ketoprofen, plaster, tape)?
Mohrus plaster containing ketoprofen is a topical medication commonly prescribed for the alleviation of pain and swelling associated with musculoskeletal disorders and localized inflammatory conditions. The plaster operates via a well-established mechanism of action centered on its active ingredient, ketoprofen, which belongs to the class of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). Ketoprofen primarily exerts its therapeutic effects by inhibiting cyclooxygenase (COX) enzymes, particularly COX-1 and COX-2, responsible for the conversion of arachidonic acid into prostaglandins.
Prostaglandins play a pivotal role in the initiation and perpetuation of inflammation and pain. By blocking their synthesis, ketoprofen mitigates the inflammatory response, leading to a reduction in pain and swelling at the site of application. The plaster acts locally, delivering ketoprofen directly to the afflicted area, thereby limiting systemic exposure and diminishing the risk of systemic side effects frequently associated with oral NSAID administration.
The efficacy of Mohrus plaster with ketoprofen has been substantiated through numerous clinical investigations and trials. Patients suffering from ailments such as arthritis, sprains, strains, and localized soft tissue injuries have consistently reported relief from pain and a reduction in swelling upon utilizing the plaster. The topical application's convenience, coupled with its localized impact, renders it an attractive choice for individuals who may not tolerate or prefer to avoid oral NSAIDs.
