General Information on Gelclair
You can buy Gelclair for treating skin ulcers, including diabetic foot ulcers or bed sores, and surgical incisions, burn wounds, cuts, skin irritations and abrasions. It is also used for treating scaly or dry skin. The generic name of this drug is Sodium Hyaluronate. Gelclair is meant for topical use only.
Sodium Hyaluronate, the active ingredient of the preparation, belongs to a group of selective serotonin sub-type 3 receptor antagonists. It works by lubricating the area by preventing abrasion or friction and restoring moisture.
Side effects of Gelclair
If you are using Gelclair oral gel, you may experience mild burning sensation inside your mouth. This is a common side effect and subsides on its own within a few minutes. However, if the burning sensation persists or worsens, inform your doctor about it.
Some patients may develop an allergic reaction to the medicine. Symptoms of an allergy include severe dizziness, hives, facial swelling, or difficulty breathing. Stop using the medicine and seek medical attention immediately if you develop any of these symptoms.
Discontinue using the medicine and notify your doctor if your condition does not improve within a few days of starting the treatment, if your symptoms get worse, or if you develop signs of a new infection such as oozing, swelling, warmth or redness in the area.
Avoid getting Gelclair in your eyes, nose or mouth or on your lips, as severe irritation may occur. If this happens, wash the area thoroughly with running water. You can use Gelclair in your mouth only if you are using it in the oral gel form.
If you are using the medicine to treat a wound, do not use a wound disinfectant which contains quarternary ammonium salts. Consult your doctor about the appropriate wound disinfecting method that you should use.
Dosage of Gelclair
You can buy Gelclair in form of a gel, cream, or spray. Cover the affected area with the medicine, without rubbing it. You should use a sterile gauze pad or any other occlusive dressing that your doctor has recommended to you. Your doctor will advise you to use Gelclair on the affected area 2 to 3 times in a day.
If you are using Gelclair oral gel, open the packet and pour its content into a glass. Add 2 tablespoons of water into it and stir it well. Rinse your mouth properly with the mixture by gargling and swishing for around 1 minute. Ensure that the inside of your cheeks, tongue, teeth and gums are thoroughly rinsed with the mixture, before you spit it out. Do not drink or eat anything for at least one hour. Gelclair oral gel can be used 3 times in a day.
You should use Gelclair exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Using the drug more often will not improve your condition. On the contrary, it may lead to serious side effects.

What is a "Generic" medication/drug?
Generic drugs are medications that have the comparable medicinal ingredients as the original brand name drug, but which are generally cheaper in price. Nearly 1 in 3 drugs dispensed are "generic". They undergo comparative testing to ensure that they are the same as their "brand" counterparts in:
- Active Ingredient (e.g. "Pravastatin" is the active ingredient in brand name Pravachol)
- Dosage (e.g. 10 mg of the active ingredient)
- Safety (e.g. same or similar side effects, drug interactions)
- Performance (e.g. 10 mg of a "generic" can be substituted for 10 mg of the "brand" and have the same therapeutic result)
- Intended use (e.g. both "generic" and "brand" would be prescribed for the same conditions)
What this means is that "generic" medications can be used as a substitute of their brand equivalents with comparable therapeutic results. There are a few exceptions (examples are outlined at the end of this page) and as always you should consult your physician before switching from a brand name medications to a generic or vice versa.
What differences are there between generic and brand?
While generics and brand equivalent drugs contain comparable active ingredients, they may be different in the following ways:
- Appearance (e.g. the scoring or markings)
The color, shape and size of the medication come from the fillers that are added to the active ingredients to make the drug. These fillers that are added to the drug have no medical use and do not to change the effectiveness of the final product. A generic drug must contain comparable active ingredients and must be comparable in strength and dosage to the original brand name equivalent. Generic drugs can be more cost effective than purchasing the brand name.
Why do generics cost less than the brand name equivalents?
When a new drug is "invented", the company that discovered it has a patent on it that gives them the exclusive production rights for this medication. Once the patent expires in a country, other companies can bring the product to market under their own name. This patent prevents other companies from copying the drug during that time so they can earn back their Research and Development costs through being the exclusive supplier of the product. After the patent expires however, other companies can develop a "generic" version of the product. These versions generally are offered at much lower prices because the companies do not have the same development costs as the original company who developed the medication.
The main thing to realize here though is that the two products are therapeutically comparable. They may look different, and be called something different, but they are required to be have the same active ingredient.
How are Generic drugs tested to ensure quality and efficacy?
The two most generally accepted methods to prove the safety of a generic version of a drug are to either repeat most of the chemistry, animal and human studies originally done, or to show that the drug performs comparably with the original brand name drug. This second option is called a "comparative bioavailability" study. During this type of study, volunteers are given the original drug, and then separately later the generic drug. The rates at which the drug is delivered to the patient (into their blood stream or otherwise absorbed) are measured to ensure they are the same. Because the same active ingredient is used the major concern is just that it delivers the common chemical(s) at the same rate so that they have the same effect. Please note that the methods that the manufacturers use may vary from country to country.
