BioElectronics Corp. announced statements of leading physicians and management team regarding the recent FDA panel recommendation to lower the maximum daily dosage of acetaminophen.
We are developing significant momentum around the world in the use of both ActiPatch Therapy and the Allay Menstrual Pain Relief Patch as a safe and effective alternative to acetaminophen, said Andrew Whelan, CEO BioElectronics Corp. Pulsed ElectroMagnetic Field (PEMF) Therapy has been proven safe and effective in hundreds of peer-reviewed scientific studies and is a strong alternative therapy for many types of musculoskeletal complaints and surgical recovery. We welcome the FDA panel’s findings that acetaminophen usage is potentially dangerous and should be restricted, Whelan said. We look forward delivering our proven safe and effective drug-free pain relief and healing technology to the American market as our clinical studies move toward conclusion. Physicians experienced with the BioElectronics product line made the following comments.
Barry Eppley, M.D., D.M.D., Indianapolis Plastic Surgeon The use of BioElectronics’ RecoveryRx allows me to reduce my patients’ use of post-operative medications including Tylenol. My clinical studies have also shown BioElectronic’s Allay technology to be a very safe and highly effective treatment alternative for dysmenorrhea (period pain), one of the most common types of pain experienced by most women. Congratulations to BioElectronics on the development of these drug-free, pain relieving technologies.
David Genocov, M.D. Specialist in Craniomaxillofacial Surgery As a physician I am always concerned about the overuse of narcotics and NSAIDS. Whenever possible our role is to reduce the use of these medications. To this end I currently use PEMF therapy in the form of the ActiPatch as an adjunctive therapy in the post-operative environment. The use of these devices has allowed me to significantly reduce the use of narcotics and NSAIDs to control pain among my patient population.
Sheena Kong, M.D. — Internal Medicine More and more of my patients are seeking drug-free solutions to pain relief. Use of Tylenol and other OTC pain medications is problematic for many types of patients and NSAIDs are often not a safe option. In my practice I have found both the ActiPatch and Allay Period Relief Patch products to be safe and effective alternatives. I believe the panel’s recommendations are sound as many patients are unaware of the potential dangers of these drugs.
