Why an NSAID?
The US government’s Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that1:
NSAIDs have been used for pain for nearly 60 years and are widely prescribed and recommended by physicians.
ZIPSOR is designed for rapid and consistent absorption in your body with technology called ProSorb®.2
The technology helps the medicine quickly distribute in your stomach, so it can be rapidly absorbed in your body.3
ZIPSOR was studied in a clinical trial comparing ZIPSOR to placebo for patients who underwent bunionectomy surgery, which is the removal of a bony deformity on the foot.4
