What is VIVA Patch?
VIVA Patch is an over-the-counter topical pain relief patch. The three active ingredients are lidocaine, camphor, and methyl salicylate. These three active ingredients contain anesthetic, analgesic, and anti-inflammatory properties.
What is lidocaine?
Lidocaine is a topical anesthetic used to numb the pain. It does this by blocking the nerve signals being sent to your brain.
What is camphor?
Camphor is a topical analgesic used in similar fashion to lidocaine. To a lesser effect than lidocaine, camphor helps block the pain being sent through your body.
What is methyl salicylate?
Methyl salicylate is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). NSAID relief works by reducing the inflammation surrounding your pain.
Why should I use a topical patch for my pain relief?
Topical pain relief patches are a safe alternative to prescription opioid medications – avoiding the risk of dependence, addiction and abuse.
Do I need a prescription for VIVA Patch?
VIVA Patch is available with or without a prescription from your physician. You can also purchase VIVA Patch from your local pharmacy.
What if my physician or local pharmacy do not carry VIVA Patch?
If they do not carry VIVA Patch, you can ask them to contact their distributor or Terrain Pharmaceuticals to learn more.
