Motusol Gel 1.16% w/w Gel 30g
Motusol Gel 1.16% w/w Gel; a potent solution infused with the powerful ingredient diclofenac, comes from a family of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). Designed meticulously for symptomatic treatment, it excels in alleviating mild to moderate pain stemming from acute strains, sprains, or contusions that follow a blunt trauma.

Additionally, the careful design incorporates an easy grip cap, ensuring uncomplicated access to the product. This key feature makes Motusol particularly favourable for those experiencing hand strains or sprains.

- Development of a skin rash accompanied by blisters or hives (occurs in up to 1 out of 1,000 individuals).
- Wheezing, difficulty breathing, or a sensation of chest tightness (asthma-like symptoms) (occurs in up to 1 out of 10,000 individuals).
- Swelling of the face, lips, tongue, or throat (occurs in up to 1 out of 10,000 individuals).There are other potential side effects as well:
- Common side effects (may affect up to 1 in 10 individuals): Skin rash, itching, redness, eczema, and dermatitis (skin inflammation), including contact dermatitis.
- Uncommon side effects (may affect up to 1 in 100 individuals): Scaling, skin dehydration, and swelling (edema).

- Side effects with unknown frequency: Burning sensation at the application site and dry skin.When applying Motusol to a large area of the skin for an extended period, there is a potential risk of systemic side effects (such as renal, hepatic, or gastrointestinal issues) and systemic hypersensitivity reactions, similar to what may occur with the systemic administration of diclofenac-containing medications. While the likelihood of these side effects cannot be completely ruled out, it is important to be aware of the possibility.
