EUFLEXXA


Is it time for EUFLEXXA to be your next therapy?

 
Life is a series of moments, experiences, and activities. If your osteoarthritis knee pain starts getting in the way of the moments you care about, ask your doctor whether EUFLEXXA is a good next choice to add to your treatment plan for knee osteoarthritis (OA) pain relief.
If your over-the-counter or prescription pain medications are no longer working well, it may be the right time to take that next step.

What does osteoarthritis do to your knee joint?

 
 

WHAT DOES HYALURONIC ACID (HA) DO INSIDE YOUR KNEE AND WHY DOES IT NEED TO BE REPLACED?

When EUFLEXXA is injected into the knee, it replenishes the HA you have lost, helping provide pain reliefClinical studies have shown that EUFLEXXA may help provide pain relief for up to 6 months.1-6
 
HA contains a natural substance that is found in the human body as well as in animals and bacteria. In the human knee, HA is a thick, slippery fluid that helps cushion, lubricate, and protect the bones and joint tissue. In patients with OA of the knee, the HA gets thinner over time and becomes less able to provide protection.3
 
EUFLEXXA is used to relieve OA knee pain in people who do not get enough relief from simple pain medications such as acetaminophen, ibuprofen, or naproxen or from exercise and physical therapy.2

HOW IS EUFLEXXA GIVEN, AND WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM TREATMENT?

EUFLEXXA is injected into the space in your knee joint. Treatment consists of 3 injections— 1 injection per week for 3 weeks.2

HOW LONG DOES EUFLEXXA LAST?
