The active ingredient is similar to the fluid that surrounds the joints in the body; it acts as a lubricant and shock absorber. As patient information leaflet states, Monovisc is typically given when patients do not get adequate pain relief from simple pain relievers like around-the-clock acetaminophen (Tylenol) - the decision to use Monovisc should be made by a healthcare professional after considering individual circumstances. You may start feeling relief from osteoarthritis knee pain two weeks after injection, and it can last for up to six months (individual experiences may vary.)
