Description: To date, clinical pain practice relies on opioids as the primary analgesics for the management of moderate to severe pain. Adjuvant analgesics use has become increasingly important especially in the management of mild to moderate pain.
Description: Adjuvant pain medications are medications that are not typically used for pain but may be helpful for its management. Adjuvant pain medications can include antidepressants, anti-seizure medications, muscle relaxants, sedatives or anti-anxiety medications, and botulinum toxin.
Description: Adjuvant analgesics tend to be less effective for musculoskeletal pain, such as back pain or joint pain. However, they can work well for neuropathic pain and pain syndromes, such as fibromyalgia. They also have a role in treating cancer pain. Unlike many other non-opioid analgesics, adjuvant analgesics are not available over the counter.
Description: An adjuvant is a pharmacological or immunological agent that modifies the effect of other agents. Adjuvants may be added to a vaccine to boost the immune response to produce more antibodies and longer-lasting immunity, thus minimizing the dose of antigen needed.
Description: Adjuvant Analgesic A generic term for a medication (e.g., antidepressants, anticonvulsants) which is not designed to manage pain, but which has effects that can help reduce the need for designated analgesics.
Description: Adjuvants help the body to produce an immune response strong enough to protect the person from the disease he or she is being vaccinated against. Adjuvanted vaccines can cause more local reactions (such as redness, swelling, and pain at the injection site) and more systemic reactions (such as fever, chills and body aches) than non-adjuvanted ...
Description: In immunology, an adjuvant is a substance that potentiates and/or modulates the immune responses to an antigen to improve them. The word "adjuvant" comes from the Latin word adiuvare, meaning to help or aid."An immunologic adjuvant is defined as any substance that acts to accelerate, prolong, or enhance antigen-specific immune responses when used in combination with specific vaccine antigens."

Description: Aim of using adjuvants with local anesthetics. Looking at the details of the mechanism, it is easily understood that the pain transmission mechanism in the central and peripheral nervous system is highly complex and involves an array of neurotransmitters and several interconnected signaling pathways.
Description: Adjuvant definition is - serving to aid or contribute : auxiliary. How to use adjuvant in a sentence. Did You Know? ... This would build on learnings from current vaccines and seek to engage new mechanisms of protection, antigenic targets, adjuvants and structural biology for antigen design.
