Movogesic oil contains Diclofenac diethyl, methyl salicylate, peppermint oil, turpentine oil, eucalyptus oil and benzyl alcohol.

Diclofenac diethyl

It is NSAID and applied to skin to reduce the inflammation and to reduce pain.

Methyl salicylate

It is organic ester extracted from plant species mainly wintergreens. It is also used synthetically as fragrance in foods and beverages. When they applied to the skin it causes sudden cooling and warm feeling.

Oils in the preparation

Peppermint oil has anti-inflammatory properties causing calming and numbing effect. It may provide relief from stress, depression and mental exhaustion.

  • Acute migraines
  • Post operative and post traumatic pain
  • Inflammation
  • Actinic keratosis
  • Pains associated with minor strains, sprains and contusions

Diclofenac diethyl

It causes the inhibition of prostaglandin synthesis by causing the inhibition of COX. It also possesses bacteriostatic activity by inhibition of bacterial DNA synthesis.

Methyl salicylate

It is NSAIDs with analgesic properties. The action is caused by inhibition of PG synthesis. The primary metabolite of methyl salicylate is salicylate which inhibits the synthesis of PG by irreversibly acetylating and inactivating COX.

Diclofenac diethyl

Absorption

After dermal application it is well absorbed by the body about 100%. The drug follows first pass metabolism so 50% of the drug is systematically available. The mean absolute bioavailability is 55% and Tmax is 2.3 hr.

Distribution

The Vd is about 1.4l/kg. About 99% of the drug is bound to protein. The diclofenac converts to its metabolites like 4′-hydroxy-, 5-hydroxy-, 3′-hydroxy-, 4′,5-dihydroxy- and 3’hydroxy-4′-methoxy-diclofenac.

Excretion 

The drug is excreted through urinary and biliary secretion.

Methysalicylate

Absorption

The dermal bioavailability is 11.8%-30.7%. The presence of methyl- salicylate causes more penetration into the skin.

Distribution

It is distributed throughout the body tissues. Salicylate is transported by low capacity saturated system out of the CSF. It follows hepatic metabolism which form conjugation with glycine to form salicyluric acid.

Excretion

It is excreted in free form in urine as salicylate acid (10%) salicyluric acid (75%), salicylic phenolic (10%) and acyl (5%) glucuronides, and gentisic acid (less than 1%). Excretion depends on the pH of the urine.
