Phlebitis-Pak® - 30 capsules - 14 day supply pack
Phlebitis means inflammation of a vein. Phleb means vein and itis means inflammation. A blood clot that causes inflammation is called thrombophlebitis, which could be from a superficial vein underneath the skin or a deep vein. Deep vein thrombosis is a more ominous condition that needs to be treated with blood thinners. In either case, a physician should supervise the care of patients with superficial or deep vein clots with associated phlebitis.
Superficial phlebitis typically has a benign course but is associated with significant pain and discomfort. The associated inflammation can be painful to the touch and can cause pigmentation of the overlying skin. Superficial phlebitis is often treated with anti-inflammatory medications such as ibuprofen ,Motrin® , and Advil®.

Phlebitis can also occur along branches of the great saphenous vein in the thigh, or along branches of the great saphenous vein below the knee or along branches of the short (or lesser) saphenous vein in the calf or posterior thigh (back of the thigh).
The formulation in Phlebitis-Pak® has been derived from treating a large number of patients in a busy clinical practice of phlebology, a board certified specialty of venous diseases and venous surgery. The proprietary blend has been utilized extensively in 2 clinical practices, the Vein Treatment Center in Williamsville, Clarence and East Amherst, NY and the Santa Monica Vein Center. Now, it is available to all patients. It is a non prescription product which is physician formulated and used extensively at two National Centers of Excellence for Venous Disorders.

Features and Benefits
Phlebitis-Pak® has a proprietary formulation which utlizes a herbal constituent (Arnica Montana), a phytoceutical (pycnogenol) as well as a neutraceutical derived from pineapple stems (bromelain). Arnica Montana has thymol derivatives that are excellent in terms of their anti-inflammatory properties and have worked well in reducing inflammation associated with veins - such as in phlebitis. Bromelain is an anti-inflammatory agent and is used extensively for sports injury, trauma, arthritis and other kinds of swelling. Its main uses are treatment of athletic injuries, healing after surgeyr to minimize bruising. It is also used to treat phlebitis. Bromelain is an efficacious alternative to non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agent (NSAID). Pycnogenol is an extract from the French maritime pine tree with excellent antioxidative properties and is used effectively in our practice to reduce the pigmentation of the skin that results from untreated phlebitis. Pycnogenol has procyanidins and bioflavonoids and has been touted as an excellent phytoceutical to combat a myriad of diseases in over 200 published scientific studies. Hence, the formulation of Phlebitis-Pak®.
Often, patients cannot tolerate taking anti-inflammatory medications such as ibuprofen, Motrin® and Advil® because of their adverse effects on the lining of the stomach, as they cause gastritis or worse, bleeding from the stomach lining. Phlebitis PAK® does not cause such problems and is gentle on the stomach lining. Only 1 in 430 patients in our series could not take this product because it caused indigestion.

Phlebitis PAK® was recommended by my vein doctor here in Atlanta after I had 3 bouts of phlebitis and had so much pain and inflammation that I could not move or touch my leg. Within days I felt like all the pain and inflamed red areas in my leg went away. Phlebitis PAK® let me get back to work and it works wonders for me.

I highly recommend Phlebitis-Pak®. I was seen at Immediate Care for phlebitis and they wanted me to take ibuprofen for phlebitis which did nothing for my pain and discomfort. I sought to be seen by a vein specialist (Dr. Karamanoukian) who prescribed Phlebitis-PAK® which took away this discomfort and helped the discoloration in the area. I was able to resume work as it provided significant pain relief.

I just couldn't believe how quickly the pain and aching went away when I started Phlebitis PAK. Already in Immediate Care twice without relief. This thing allowed me to get back to my routine in 48 hours. Well worth it.

I was hesitant to get this product when it was recommended and therefore I paid the price by continuing to have the pain and missing time from work. When I had concerns in the middle of the night, I went back to the emergency room and paid a 150 dollar copay to be seen for more pain. I finally aquiesced and tried Phlebitis Pak and it helped treat the pain and discomfort within 48 hours. It was well worth it. Sometimes you gotta listen to the doctor and this seems to be one of those cases as phlebitis can be quite painful when it is not treated appropriately.
George P - Orchard Park, NY
I have used this product for phlebitis. I was seen twice in the emergency room and they told me to take ibuprofen which did not help with the pain and tenderness. After 2 days, Phlebitis-Pak® got rid of the redness and discomfort in my leg and also helped with the discoloration in the area. It allowed me to return to work sooner.

I have suffered from phlebitis in the past and used ibuprofen alone. I recently had phlebitis and used Phlebitis-Pak® and had much less discomfort and also was able to work without aching and minimal pain. Also noticed that I had less pigmentation and brown discoloration over the vein once it healed. I love this product and recommend it highly.
