Artroker: reviews of doctors
This drug is a delayed action. However, compared with other similar means, the therapeutic effect after Artrocker lasts much longer. In the course of treatment, the patient is less in need of additional pain medication. The art broker not only eliminates the inflammatory process, but also slows down the development of osteoarthrosis.
The most effective drug was osteoarthritis of the hip joint. The study showed that with a long course of treatment of 2.5-3 years, the process of narrowing of the joint space was significantly slowed down.
It was also found that side effects are manifested only in some patients, in the form of intestinal problems (pain or diarrhea). After about 10 days of administration, side effects are significantly reduced or disappear completely.
A part of the patients noted a positive effect from taking the medication already in 4-5 weeks. Especially, it concerns spinal pain. It was noted that the pain syndrome became less strong and the additional use of anesthetic is not needed.
The effect of the drug in older people slows down, so the effect of the drug can be seen after 3.5-4 months.
