Licart can avoid some of the drawbacks that come with other topical pain treatments.
Licart offers:

  • Once-a-day dosing. Unlike other topical pain relievers that require multiple daily doses, Licart requires only 1 dose a day to effectively control acute pain.
  • Fast-acting. Some topical pain relievers require several hours or days to reach their full effect. Licart offers relief within 1 to 3 hours after first application.¹
  • Low systemic exposure. Many commonly prescribed oral pain relievers can be risky for many patients with medical conditions or who are taking other medications that may have a systemic (whole body) effect. Licart delivers powerful pain relief directly to where it hurts with low systemic exposure and a low incidence of adverse events.³
  • Easy to administer. Other topical NSAID pain relievers (gels and liquids) require measuring out  precise dosing. Licart ensures a proper dose in one easy-to-apply patch.
  • No mess or unpleasant odor like other topical pain relievers. Licart sticks to where it hurts and won’t stain clothing.
  • Accessible and affordable. There are multiple options to help you reduce the out-of-pocket costs for your Licart therapy with or without health insurance.
 How Does Licart Work?

How Does Licart Work?

Licart is a once-a-day topical NSAID therapy that is effective as an add-on or as monotherapy for acute pain due to minor strains, sprains, and contusions. Clinically proven to reduce pain and swelling, Licart helps you control pain so that you may get back to your everyday life.¹

Licart features patented next-generation patch technology that helps it to act fast and deliver long-lasting pain relief directly to where it hurts. Other topical NSAID pain formulations can require multiple daily doses and can take several days to reach their full effect. With Licart, you can start to feel significant pain relief 1 – 3 hours after the first application.  Licart has been clinically proven to reduce pain when used daily for up to 7 days.¹
Unlike oral drugs, Licart has low systemic exposure. It also has a low incidence of adverse events.³
Licart is not an opioid so you don’t have to worry about dependency.

What Makes Licart Different

Formulated with patented next-generation patch technology, Licart is a unique topical nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) product that delivers powerful and proven pain relief directly to where it hurts. Unlike other topical NSAID pain medicines, you only have to apply Licart once a day, not multiple times a day. With Licart, you simply peel it off from its adhesive backing and apply to where it hurts. There is no mess or odor and it won’t stain your clothes.

How often can Licart be used?

Licart is meant to be used once daily. Its unique hydrophilic adhesion promotes skin adherence.²
So you can go about your day without worrying about reapplication. It’s pain relief that sticks.

How long does Licart take to work?

Licart starts working within 1-3 hours after first application. Topical NSAID gels and liquids can take hours or days before they reach their peak pain-reducing effect.²
With Licart, you can get fast and powerful pain relief quickly to where you need it. 

Is Licart addictive?

Licart is not an opioid drug. It is non-narcotic and not habit-forming.

How to Apply Licart

Apply as prescribed by your doctor.

Using Licart is simple. Just peel the adhesive backing from the Licart patch and apply directly to the site of your pain. The recommended dose is 1 patch to the most painful area, once daily.

If Licart begins to peel off, the edges of the patch may be taped down. For ankles, knees, and elbows, you can use a mesh netting sleeve to keep the patch in place as long as air is still able to pass through.

When Not to Use Licart

Do not apply Licart to damaged skin, and do not wear the patch when showering or bathing. Wash your hands after applying, handling, or removing Licart. Avoid contact with your eyes.

Before taking Licart, tell your doctor if you have a history of cardiovascular disease, or liver or kidney disease. Tell your doctor if you have a history of GI bleeding or are taking a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) therapy for another medical condition.
