Pharmaceutica North America’s Medrox Patch is an over the counter topical analgesic infused in a transdermal patch for controlled release of the medication. The patch is applied to clean, dry skin. Medrox provides a heating/cooling effect for the temporary relief of joint, muscle and nerve pain. The patch contains a blend of natural and pharmaceutical ingredients including Capsaicin and Menthol.
Menthol is derived from natural volatile oils such as peppermint and provides a cooling sensation which is soothing to the skin. Menthol targets the k-opioid receptor on the TRPM8 neuron and the result is a cooling analgesic effect.
Capsaicin is a naturally occurring compound found in chili pepper. It binds with the TRPV1 protein that affects pain and heat neurons, overwhelming the nerve endings which gives it that heating effect.
The unique combination attacks several pain receptors to provide maximum relief by targeting specific areas of pain and reducing inflammation.
Medrox provides long lasting relief for common conditions such as arthritis, backaches, muscle soreness, and strains. It’s available in a box of five.
