What Strength (Dosage) are you looking for?
DISCLAIMER: The following is provided exclusively to provide general information about Synvisc One and is not intended as a substitute for professional medical advice. Always seek out a physician or other licensed health care provider’s advice for your medical condition or treatment plan. Do not ignore professional advice or delay seeking it out because of the information provided here.
Synvisc One is made to ease knee pain in those with osteoarthritis. When you have osteoarthritis the cartilage in your knee wears away over time which can eventually lead to the fluids that cushion and lubricate your joints breaking down causing significant pain. Synvisc One, when injected simulates the synovial fluid and helps to relieve pain and help your knees work properly.
A nurse or other trained medical professional will administer this medication. Synvisc One is given as an injection into the knee joint. It could take more than one injection for the pain to go away.
Synvisc One is given as a single injection as opposed to Synvisc which is a 3 injection regimen. Ensure you read the patient information that comes with Synvisc One before you get the medication and ask your doctor or nurse any questions that arise.
Sometimes certain medications will interact in the body. There are medications that can react very badly and should never be taken together, though some interactions are not as severe and can be mitigated by your doctor using dosage changes or other precautions. It is important to talk to your doctor and give them a list of all the prescription, non-prescription, and herbal products you use so they can watch for interactions.
Other medical problems
The presence of other medical conditions can affect your use of Synvisc One. Medical conditions that may interact with Synvisc One include:

Along with the expected and needed effects, Synvisc One may cause some unwanted effects as well. Some side effects are indicative of an allergic reaction and should be taken very seriously. Other side effects may occur that require medical attention, while some are mild and will subside with time.

- skin itching
- lower back sprain
- pain at the injection site
- raised red swellings on the lips, skin, throat, or tongue.
