Relieves pain, anti-inflammatory and antipyretic
Available again in pharmacies and drugstores from June.
Dolocyl® Forte is easy to swallow thanks to its small, round shape and its coating. NEW: Dolocyl® Forte is now a white dragée without any additional dye.
Thanks to the active ingredient ibuprofen, Dolocyl® Forte relieves pain and is anti-inflammatory. Ibuprofen successfully treats pain in the joints and ligaments as well as backache, headache and toothache. It prevents the development of prostaglandins that cause, for instance, abdominal pain and cramps during menstruation. This means Dolocyl® Forte is a suitable painkiller for menstrual problems. With its antipyretic property, ibuprofen can be used to provide relief from flu-like infections.
Available again in pharmacies and drugstores from June 2020.
Anti-inflammatory cream for arthrosis, arthritis or gout
The first topical ibuprofen cream on the Swiss market
Rheumatic and degenerative changes to the musculoskeletal system can occur between the ages of 30 and 60. In arthrosis, for instance, joint cartilage gradually breaks down. This can result in joint pain and also inhibit mobility. People affected by rheumatoid arthritis suffer from inflammatory diseases of the joints. The symptoms include swelling and chronic pain, that can often greatly impact on their quality of life. According to the Rheumaliga Schweiz (Swiss league against rheumatism), 70,000 people in Switzerland suffer from rheumatoid arthritis.1 Gout is another inflammatory joint disease that can cause extreme pain. Dolocyl® ibuprofen cream can be used as a supporting measure for the local treatment of rheumatic complaints for a maximum period of two weeks.

If Dolocyl® ibuprofen cream is to be used beyond a period of two weeks, we recommend doing so with intervals. Dolocyl® ibuprofen cream relieves pain, is anti-inflammatory and reduces swelling. It has skin-nourishing properties and is odour-free. Thanks to its pleasant texture, it is easy to apply and not sticky.
Available in pharmacies and chemists.
Strong on pain – gentle on the body
Precise – gentle – nourishing
Dolocyl® ibuprofen cream relieves pain exactly where it is applied. The ibuprofen penetrates the skin precisely and goes directly to the underlying tissue. It has been confirmed that the active ingredient is found deep in the joint and in the synovial fluid2 in therapeutically effective concentrations3.
Because treatment with the pain-killing cream is localised, there are no systematic effects and there is no stress on the whole organism. This means Dolocyl® ibuprofen cream is well tolerated by the stomach and works gently.
Dolocyl® ibuprofen cream nourishes the skin. It contains no alcohol and does not dry the skin. This makes Dolocyl® ibuprofen cream ideal for thin or dry skin.
