Product introduction

Gabafix Gel is used to treat neuropathic pain. It blocks the release of certain chemical messengers that cause pain and inflammation. It decreases the pain by modulating calcium channel activity.

Gabafix Gel is only meant for external use and should be used strictly as advised by your doctor. Rub a thin layer of the medicine into the affected areas with clean and dry hands. Avoid getting in contact with your eyes, nose, or mouth and avoid applying it on wounded or damaged skin. In case of accidental contact with these areas, you should rinse it with plenty of cold water.

It is generally well-tolerated with little or no side effects. However, it may cause burning or stinging sensation at the site of application in some people. These are usually temporary and resolve with time. If they get worse or do not go away, you should let your doctor know.

Although medicines used on the skin are not normally affected by other medicines you should let your doctor know if you are taking any other medicine to be safe. You should also let your doctor know if you have any medical conditions or disorders to make sure it is safe. Ask your doctor for advice if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.

How Gabafix Gel works

Gabafix Gel is a combination of five medicines. Diclofenac is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID). It works by blocking the release of certain chemical messengers that cause pain and inflammation (redness and swelling). Capsaicin Based Rubefacients desensitize the nerve endings which alleviates the pain, whereas rubefacients increase the blood flow of the affected area to give a warm and soothing feeling. Menthol, is an organic compound, extracted from peppermint oil. It activates the cold sensing chemical messenger, which gives a cooling effect. Methyl Salicylate is a natural component that prevents inflammation (pain, redness, and swelling) by blocking chemical messengers (prostaglandin and thromboxane). Pregabalin is an alpha 2 delta ligand which decreases the pain by modulating calcium channel activity of the nerve cells.
