Description

What is Feldene?

Piroxicam (Feldene) is an effective NSAID (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug) used to treat pain and inflammation. NSAIDs are targeted pain killing medicines that work at the site of pain by reducing inflammation.

Feldene is available as both a gel and as tablets. Tablets have limited use as a painkiller and can only be started by a specialist in osteo and rheumatoid arthritis. It is a second line drug as there are other NSAIDs that are just as effective but have a lower risk of side effects (like Naproxen).

Piroxicam as a gel is still used as effective topical pain relief and helps with both joint and back pain, but also muscle and soft tissue damage and tears. Like Voltarol gel, it is absorbed through the skin at the site of action and gets deep into the tissue to reduce pain and inflammation but with a much lower chance of getting any systemic (internal) side effects.

Feldene can be applied short term up to three times a day. It’s also safe to use with paracetamol and therefore can be used to treat any breakthrough pain that you may encounter during the day. Feldene and any other topical anti-inflammatory should only be used for short term pain relief and if you find that you are using it for more than 28 days you should consult your GP for an alternative or for further advice.

Other topical NSAIDs include:

Voltarol (Diclofenac) Gel
Ibuprofen Gel
Ibuleve Gel
Nurofen Gel
Deep Relief (Also contains a rubefacient)
