Pennsaid - Overview

Pennsaid is a topical medication used for the treatment of symptoms related to osteoarthritis of the knee. People who need a Pennsaid cream prescription can use Push Health to connect with a local medical provider who can prescribe Pennsaid 2% topical gel when appropriate to do so.

What Is Pennsaid Used For?

Pennsaid contains the active ingredient diclofenac sodium. Like Celebrex, ibuprofen, meloxicam, and naproxen, Pennsaid belongs to a class of medications known as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). Pennsaid, similar to other medications in its class, is thought to work by blocking the enzyme cyclooxygenase. In doing so, Pennsaid likely interferes with the downstream production of chemicals that potentiate the inflammatory response - thromboxane and prostaglandin in particular - through its action on the arachidonic acid cascade. Unfortunately, the exact mechanism of action behind Pennsaid's effects is not fully understood.

Pennsaid - Cost, Coupon and Application

Pennsaid is an expensive medication, costing $25 per gram or more of Pennsaid topical 2% solution at most pharmacies in the United States. For people paying out of pocket, this high price leads people to look for Pennsaid coupons online which may or may not be found. Some insurance plans may cover some or all of the cost associated with a Pennsaid cream prescription but it is necessary to check with one's insurance plan to confirm. Typically, Pennsaid is prescribed as 40 drops of Pennsaid topical solution applied four times per day but the ultimate regimen depends on the judgement of the prescribing medical provider and the health needs of the patient. Pennsaid is generally applied to dry and clean skin and should not be used in the mouth, nose or eyes. When applied, Pennsaid gel should be spread evenly around the back, sides and front of the knee and the topical solution should be allowed to dry before covering with clothing or other topical creams.

Can I Buy Pennsaid Online?

Pennsaid - Side Effects

Pennsaid can cause side effects when used. As a result, before using Pennsaid topical, it is important to discuss possible side effects with one's medical provider and pharmacist. Side effects that may result from Pennsaid use include pain, irritation, redness and other discomfort at the site of application. Pennsaid and alcohol should not be used together. People with a known hypersensitivity to Pennsaid, diclofenac or other NSAID medications should not use Pennsaid. Pennsaid should not be used by people to treat pain related to a coronary artery bypass graft surgery.
