Important Treatment Consideration

euflexxa® (1% sodium hyaluronate) is indicated for the treatment of knee pain due to osteoarthritis (OA). It is used in people who have failed to get adequate pain relief either from simple pain medications, such as acetaminophen, or from exercise and/or physical therapy.

euflexxa® should not be used in people who have had any previous allergic reaction to hyaluronate preparations or who have knee joint infections or skin diseases in the area of the injection site.

In a randomized, double-blind, multicenter clinical trial, the only adverse event reported with euflexxa® at an incidence greater than 5% was arthralgia (joint pain) (8.75%). Temporary knee pain and swelling may occur after injection with euflexxa®.

The safety and effectiveness of injecting euflexxa® into the knee together with other injectable medications or into joints other than the knee have not been studied. The safety and effectiveness of treatment cycles of fewer than 3 injections or of repeated treatment cycles with euflexxa® have not been established. Strict aseptic technique must be followed to avoid joint infection.
