SARAPIN®, which acts on the sensory nerves, has been used safely and effectively for pain management by physicians for over 70 years. Unlike Cortisone, which is known to carry some side effects such as elevation of blood pressure and weight gain, SARAPIN® is a biological medicine derived from the pitcher plant that has virtually no known side effects.
It works by stopping pain signals in the nerves of the spine where they exit the spinal column. It does not affect any other nerve or motor functions, nor is it affected by heat or cold. Sarapin is a non-toxic, sterile aqueous solution of soluble salts of the volatile bases from Sarraceniaceae (Pitcher Plant). Benzyl Alcohol 0.75%.
Sarapin should be stored at room temperature (59°-86°F).
This product has an 18-month shelf life.
*Ships to ALL states EXCEPT Alabama, Arkansas, Michigan, South Carolina and Minnesota

Disclaimer: These dosages are examples only and not meant for use with any particular patient. These example dosages are provided here to give the purchaser a general concept of how many bottles may need to be purchased to stock the practice. The medical provider treating the patient must determine the appropriate dosage for each patient.
After the injection, patients should be lying down for 10 to 15 minutes. Due to the restricted distribution of the nerve injected, it is anticipated that there will be a sensation where the Sarapin was injected, and normally feels like a short-term heaviness. However, there are cases where heat can be felt along with a brief aggravation of symptoms.
