The drug "Hondrolon": reviews of patients, form of release, indications, instructions for use
Very popular are creams for joints, "Hondrolon" in the form of ampoules and other drugs against joint pain."Chondrolon" is often prescribed to their patients by doctors, but the drug can be bought without a prescription, so many people practice self-medication with its application and without the recommendation of a specialist. Is it worth it? On average, the price of the drug "Hondrolon" in our pharmacies is about two or three hundred rubles. Is it worth that much money? Let's try to look more closely.
The development of domestic doctors
The medicine "Hondrolon" was invented in Russia. This drug is produced by the Ufa pharmaceutical company "Immunopreparat".In many ways, this is why the drug is much cheaper than many similar medicines to fight joint diseases. The manufacturer has existed since 1905 and specializes in immunobiological products, which allow to effectively prevent the development of diseases and fight them. However, as can be seen from the reviews, treatment of "Chondrolon" does not always show exactly the result that the patient hoped for. The manufacturer explains this by the peculiarities of each specific situation: the severity of the disease, the specificity of the patient's body.
From the advertising campaign you can find out that the "Hondrolon"( tablets under this brand are not manufactured, only the drug for injections) was created using the most modern technologies. This allowed us to develop an effective tool. The company is engaged in scientific research, during which it was able to discover important features of a number of components useful for joints. It is their introduction and gives such a good effect for the joints( oral, intramuscular)."Hondrolon" is popular both because of its low price, and because of its good reputation.
Actual for all
Medical statistics are absolutely ruthless: from year to year the number of cases of arthrosis, osteochondrosis, arthritis is growing. Not only does the total number of sick people increase, but also the frequency with which diseases are diagnosed in the population. Violations previously characteristic of the elderly are now often affecting young people. The pathologies affecting the musculoskeletal system will not be an exception. There are many reasons: ecology, lifestyle, unhealthy food, and only one way out: timely treatment. If you delay - you can find yourself in an almost desperate situation, when the only measure that can help is an operation to replace the joint with the implant. As can be seen from the patients' reviews, the "Hondrolon" allows solving the problem to some extent.
According to statistics, diseases of the musculoskeletal system are characteristic for 27% of people who have crossed the 50-year age limit, and among 60-year-olds and older patients 90%.Most diseases affect women.
What's made of?
As the manufacturer explains, the composition of "Chondrolon" is an effective mixture based on chondroitin, that is, a mucopolysaccharide whose characteristic feature is a large molecular weight.
The agent is recommended for problems of calcium metabolism, phosphoric, as it restores these processes, not only in cartilage tissue, but also in bones. Also, the composition of "Chondrolon" allows to reduce the activity of a number of enzymes, due to which the tissues are not destroyed for a long time for natural reasons. Destructive processes with the use of the drug are slowed down. However, as can be seen from the instructions for use, "Hondrolon"( the price of the drug - about 200-300 rubles per package) activates the formation of glycosaminoglucans in the human body. When you take the medication joint bag, the surface of the joints come back to normal, the fluid inside the joint is produced in normal volume, and its composition again becomes correct, as conceived by nature. The process of formation of thrombi in small blood vessels near the joint is blocked.
Reliably and effectively
According to the results of the conducted researches, "Hondrolon" officially received the status of chondroprotector. These are such medicines that make it possible to provide joints with protection against destructive factors, activate regenerative processes. The European League against rheumatism recommends( and this is confirmed by patients' reviews) "Hondrolon" as one of the main means for the therapy of joint pathologies.
Application: what gives?

The patients' comments on the "Chondrolon" indicate that the effectiveness has been observed for quite a long time.
What happens in the body?
The manufacturer notes that a positive effect is possible only if the instructions for the use of "Hondrolon" are observed( the price of 200-300 rubles per package stimulates careful study of the usage rules so as not to spend money just like that).If the agent is intended for insertion into the muscle, it should be used in this way. Do not inject into a vein! When using a solution for injection, the highest level of active substance concentration is observed in the patient's body after 60 minutes. Gradual reduction is stretched for a couple of hours.

However, as can be seen from the responses of those who underwent treatment with its use, negative phenomena are observed very rarely. In general, the tolerability of the drug in most of the high.
Features of the action
As can be seen from the patients' reviews, "Hondrolon" works almost always, and the effect is good. Experts explain this by the fact that the drug can penetrate into the joint cavity through the synovial membrane. Only a quarter of an hour after the administration of the drug, and the active substance is already present in the affected area.
From the synovial fluid, the chondroprotector gradually penetrates deep into the tissues of the cartilage. Studies show that the therapeutic concentration persists for about 48 hours. In another day, metabolic products leave the body through the urinary tract.
