Traumeel®s’ benefits compared to NSAIDs

Non-steroidalanti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are among the most commonly used pain relievers worldwide. NSAIDs are unspecific COX enzyme inhibitors that reduce the formation of prostaglandins, which are triggers of inflammation. NSAIDs include medicines like diclofenac, ibuprofen, ketoprofen and naproxen. In contrast to NSAIDs, the natural multi-component medicine Traumeel® provides both pain relief and support of tissue repair and results in an accelerated healing process. See the difference between NSAIDs and Traumeel®.

What to consider for elderly and at-risk patients

NSAIDs toxicity limits the use in patients at risk, especially in the elderly or in patients taking several medicines together (drug interactions), impaired liver and/or kidney function, gastrointestinal and/or heart diseases.3-7

Traumeel® is well tolerated and without any significant safety issues for more than 70 years.8,9

At-risk patients

What about patients with contraindications?

NSAIDs have known gastrointestinal, cardiovascular, renal and liver toxicities.3-7

Traumeel® has no known safety issues.8,9

contraindications

What to consider in patients with musculoskeletal disorders

An increasing body of evidence suggests that NSAIDs may impair the healing process of bone and soft tissues, including muscles, ligaments and tendons.10-15

Traumeel® supports the healing process

musculoskeletal disorders

What about patients who need multiple medications?

There are multiple interactions of NSAIDs with other common medications that can restrict their use.3-7

Traumeel® has no known interactions with other medications.16
