Description of dosage form

Transparent or slightly turbid, colorless or yellowish-tinged gel, with a specific odor

pharmachologic effect

Pharmacological action - anti-inflammatory, local anesthetic.


Ketoprofen is one of the most effective inhibitors of COX. It also inhibits the activity of lipoxygenase and bradykinin. Stabilizes the lysosomal membranes and prevents the release of enzymes involved in the inflammatory process.

The main properties of ketoprofen are analgesic, anti-inflammatory and anti-edematous action. Ketoprofen does not adversely affect the condition of the articular cartilage.


Ketoprofen with topical application in the form of a gel does not accumulate in the body. Bioavailability of the gel is about 5%. Cmax ketoprofen in blood plasma is achieved 6 hours after application of the drug. Penetrates into the tissues of the joints, incl. in the synovial fluid, and reaches there therapeutic concentrations. The concentration of the drug in the blood plasma is extremely low.

Ketoprofen is metabolized in the liver with the formation of conjugates, which are excreted mainly by the kidneys. Metabolism of ketoprofen does not depend on age, the presence of severe renal failure or cirrhosis of the liver. The excretion of ketoprofen by the kidneys is slow.


Symptomatic therapy is the reduction of pain and inflammation at the time of use (for the progression of the disease does not affect) under the following conditions:

diseases of the musculoskeletal system (osteoarthritis, osteochondrosis with radicular syndrome, sciatica, inflammatory lesions of ligaments, tendons, lumbago, bursitis, sciatica);

injuries of the musculoskeletal system (including sports), muscle and ligament injury, sprains, ligament tears and tendons, posttraumatic inflammation of the soft tissues;

muscular pain of rheumatic and non-rheumatic origin.

If necessary, consult a doctor before using the medication.


hypersensitivity to ketoprofen or other components of the drug, as well as salicylates, tiaprofenic acid or other NSAIDs, fenofibrate; skin allergy in a history of sunscreen and perfumes;

complete or incomplete combination of bronchial asthma, recurrent nasal polyposis and paranasal sinuses and intolerance to acetylsalicylic acid or other NSAIDs (including in the anamnesis);

violation of the integrity of the skin in the area of application of the gel (eczema, acne, dandruff, open or infected wound);

reaction of photosensitivity in the anamnesis;

exposure to sunlight, incl. indirect sunlight and UV irradiation in the solarium throughout the treatment period and 2 more weeks after discontinuation of treatment with the drug;

III trimester of pregnancy;

children's age (up to 15 years).

With caution: impaired liver function and / or kidney function; erosive-ulcerative lesion of the gastrointestinal tract; blood diseases; bronchial asthma; chronic heart failure; hepatic porphyria. In the case of the abovementioned diseases and conditions, consult a physician before using VALUSAL® gel.

pregnancy and lactation

Since the safety of ketoprofen in pregnant women has not been evaluated, the use of ketoprofen in I and II trimesters of pregnancy should be avoided.

The drug VALUSAL® is contraindicated in the third trimester of pregnancy. During the III trimester of pregnancy, all prostaglandin synthetase inhibitors, including ketoprofen, can have toxic effects on the heart, lungs and kidneys of the fetus. At the end of pregnancy, an increase in the time of bleeding in the mother and child is possible. NSAIDs may delay the onset of labor.

To date, there is no data on the isolation of ketoprofen in breast milk, so the use of VALUSAL ® during breastfeeding is not recommended.

Side effects

According to WHO, the undesirable effects are classified according to their frequency of development as follows: very often (≥1 / 10); often (from ≥1 / 100 to <1/10); infrequently (from ≥1 / 1000 to <1/100); rarely (from ≥1 / 10000 to <1/1000); very rarely (<1/10000); frequency is unknown - according to available data, it was not possible to establish the frequency of occurrence.

On the part of the immune system: the frequency is unknown - anaphylactic shock, angioedema (Quincke's edema), hypersensitivity reactions.

From the digestive tract: very rarely - peptic ulcer, bleeding, diarrhea.

From the skin and subcutaneous tissues: infrequently - local skin reactions such as erythema, eczema, itching and burning; rarely photosensitivity reactions, hives. There have been rare reports of more severe reactions, such as bullous or fluke-venous eczema, which can spread beyond the area of application or become generalized.

From the side of the kidneys and urinary tract: very rarely - impairment of renal function in patients with CRF.

If any of the side effects described in the description are aggravated or the patient has noticed any other side effects not listed in the description, you should notify the doctor.


With external application of ketoprofen in the form of a gel, it is possible to enhance the effect of drugs that cause photosensitivity.

Patients taking anticoagulants coumarinic series, it is recommended to conduct regular monitoring of MHO.

Ketoprofen, like other NSAIDs, can reduce the excretion of methotrexate and increase its toxicity.

Interaction with other drugs and the effect on their excretion are not significant.

Dosing and Administration


A small amount of gel (3-5 cm) is applied a thin layer on the skin of an inflamed or painful area of the body 1-2 times a day and gently rubbed.

Dosage should be selected according to the area of the affected area: 5 cm of gel correspond to 100 mg of ketoprofen, 10 cm to 200 mg of ketoprofen.

If necessary, the gel can be combined with other medicinal forms of ketoprofen (capsules, tablets, suppositories rectal, solution for intravenous administration).

The maximum dose of ketoprofen is 200 mg / day.

An occlusive dressing is not recommended.

Do not use without consulting a doctor for more than 14 days.

If the patient forgot to apply the gel, it should be applied at the time when the next dose should be applied, but not double it.

If there is no improvement after treatment or new symptoms appear, it is necessary to consult a doctor.

Use the drug only according to the method of administration and at the doses specified in the description. If necessary, consult a doctor before using the medication.


Overdose is unlikely with external application of the drug.

Treatment: It is necessary to thoroughly wash the skin under running water.

In case of ingestion, systemic undesirable reactions may develop. In this case, symptomatic treatment and supportive therapy as with overdose forms for oral administration is necessary.

special instructions

You should avoid getting the gel in the eyes, on the skin around the eyes, mucous membranes.

When skin reactions appear, incl. developed when combined with octocrylene-containing drugs, should immediately stop treatment.

Patients suffering from bronchial asthma in combination with chronic rhinitis, chronic sinusitis and / or polyposis of the nose or paranasal sinuses have a higher risk of developing allergic reactions with aspirin and / or NSAIDs than the rest of the population.

To reduce the risk of photosensitivity, it is recommended to protect gel-treated skin areas with clothing from exposure to UV irradiation throughout the treatment period and for another 2 weeks after discontinuation of use.

Do not exceed the recommended duration of treatment because of the increased risk of contact dermatitis and photosensitivity reactions over time.

Wash hands thoroughly after each application.

Impact on the ability to drive vehicles and service moving machinery. Data on the negative effect of the drug on the ability to drive vehicles and engage in other potentially hazardous activities that require concentration and speed of psychomotor reactions, no.

Precautions for the destruction of unused medications. Drugs should not be disposed of in sewers or together with household waste.
