Looking to use homeopathic ingredients to help manage arthritis pain, Hyland’s has introduced Flexmore in a daytime and nighttime formulation. Flexmore and Flexmore PM are designed to use natural active ingredients to tackle arthritis pain — which affects more than 54 million U.S. adults — while also allowing the product to be taken with other medications, as there are no known drug interactions or side effects.
“We found it particularly startling in our own survey of adults suffering from arthritis or joint pain, that almost all respondents declared that pain impacts their everyday life, with over 75% being disrupted in their sleep, limiting their exercising or not doing activities they love,” said Les Hamilton, president of Hyland’s. “Yet 2-out-of-3 arthritis sufferers delay taking their pain medication because of concerns about long-term risks and/or experience with side effects from common pain relievers.”
Hyland’s said the products were developed and designed by pharmacists for relief of minor muscle and joint pain caused by arthritis and rheumatic pain, joint swelling, stiffness and cramping. It also can ease joint, neck and back pain while being free of ibuprofen, naproxen, acetaminophen and aspirin. Flexmore PM is formulated to help with occasional sleeplessness.
As part of the launch, Hyland’s has partnered with the Arthritis Foundation as a participating member of the Let’s Get a Grip on Arthritis” campaign, meant to help drive awareness toward researching new ways to improve quality of life for those with arthritis.
Sold in bottles of 50 quick-dissolving tablets that feature an easy-open cap, Flexmore and Flexmore PM have launched at select CVS Pharmacy, Kroger, Rite Aid, Walgreens, and Walmart stores nationwide, as well as online at Hylands.com and Amazon.com.
