How does Mesoglycan work?

Mesoglycan appears to have effects that improve blood flow and reduce the risk of clotting.

Are there safety concerns?

Mesoglycan is POSSIBLY SAFE for most adults when taken by mouth. It can cause nausea, vomiting, heartburn, headache, diarrhea, and skin reactions.

Because mesoglycan comes from animal products, there is a risk that diseases could be accidentally transmitted from sick animals.

There isn't enough information to know whether mesoglycan is safe when used applied to the skin or given intravenously (by IV).

Special Precautions & Warnings:

Pregnancy and breast-feeding: There is not enough reliable information about the safety of taking mesoglycan if you are pregnant or breast-feeding. Stay on the safe side and avoid use.

Bleeding disorders: Mesoglycan might cause bleeding in people with clotting problems. Use with caution.

An allergy to the blood thinner heparin: Mesoglycan might cause allergic reactions in people who are allergic to heparin or related drugs.

Surgery: Mesoglycan might slow blood clotting. There is some concern that it might cause extra bleeding if used near the time of surgery. Stop using mesoglycan at least 2 weeks before a scheduled surgery.
