The Flector Patch contains diclofenac, a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). Like other NSAIDs, it works by blocking a specific enzyme known as cyclooxygenase (COX), blocking the production of various inflammatory substances in the body. However, because it works mostly where it is applied (only a small fraction of the medication actually reaches the rest of the body), the Flector Patch helps to lower the exposure to the rest of the body (which may decrease the risk of dangerous side effects).
It does not seem to have any kind of narcotics, however please do also check it with a pharmacist.
Take care, best wishes!
