Gel-One (cross-linked hyaluronate) is an injectable hyaluronate gel approved for the treatment of osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee who have failed to respond adequately to non-pharmacologic therapy, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) or analgesics, e.g., acetaminophen. Common side effects of Gel-One include:

Gel-One may interact with other drugs. Tell your doctor all medications and supplements you use. Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or breastfeeding before receiving Gel-One.
