What makes Flector different?

For over 30 years, FLECTOR has helped treat acute pain due to minor strains, sprains, and contusions. Ask your doctor about moving forward with FLECTOR—only from IBSA. Ensure you get prescribed Flector by asking your doctor to write “Dispense as Written” on your prescription to enjoy savings programs that can provide lower prices for branded Flector than for generic topical diclofenac systems.

FLECTOR is Clinically Proven

  • FLECTOR is a topical system that treats acute pain due to minor strains, sprains, and contusions in adults and pediatric patients 6 years and older
  • FLECTOR is a topical system consisting of a piece of material with medicine that can be directly applied to the skin where it hurts most
  • It's not messy—just peel and apply
  • It contains diclofenac, a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory (NSAID) that relieves both pain and inflammation (swelling)
  • It's not a narcotic
