Aflofarm intensively develops its product portfolio. 10 new items have been added to the company's product group over the past months, including two OTC drugs.

Aflofarm's OTC drug line has been expanded by two products: inVirum and Bravera Control. The first one is a medicine in tablet form used to treat people with recurrent lip and face herpes or external genital herpes caused by the herpes virus (Herpes simplex). The medicinal product may only be used in patients with a history of herpes virus infections.

1 tablet contains 200 mg of acyclovir, which inhibits the multiplication of the Herpes simplex virus and accelerates the healing process of skin lesions1.

The second novelty in the OTC drugs segment is Bravera Control - the only drug for premature ejaculation available without a prescription in Poland2. The product is available in a skin aerosol form, which is highly comfortable for the patient. The product contains lidocaine - an active substance which has been used in medicine for years. The local anesthetic effect of Bravera Control is responsible for reducing penis sensitivity to the touch and thus delaying ejaculation.

- At Aflofarm, we focus on modern therapeutic solutions that provide patients with additional benefits from the drugs they use. In the case of Bravera Control, the advantage of the product is its form - the spray provides a comfortable, discreet and, above all, accurate manner of application – explains Jacek Furman, President at Aflofarm Farmacja Polska.
