Movelat Gel is a mild to moderate anti-inflammatory and analgesic (pain-relieving) preparation which, when applied to the skin, provides relief from muscular pain and stiffness, sprains and strains, and pain due to rheumatic and non-serious arthritic conditions.
Movelat is different from other topical analgesics because they combine the effects of two active ingredients - an effective anti-inflammatory and an absorption enhancer which means that Movelat can actually get to work beneath the surface.
Active ingredients: mucopolysaccharide polysulfate 0.2% w/w and salicylic acid 2.0% w/w.
Before use, pierce the tube seal with the spiked top of the cap, push and turn the spiked end of the cap firmly into the nozzle until you hear a click. The amount of gel you use will depend on the size of the area being treated, between 2 and 6 inches (5-15 cm) of gel should be gently massaged into the affected area at any one time. You can apply Movelat Gel up to four times a day. Do not exceed this dose. Some people experience discomfort, particularly those with sensitive skin or if used in hot weather or after a bath. Remember to wash your hands after applying Movelat Gel, unless this is the area being treated. If you accidentally swallow some of this gel you should contact your doctor or a hospital casualty department. You may experience rapid breathing, a ringing sound in the ears, deafness, light-headedness or sweating.
