While you may need surgery, you don’t need the stress of worrying about pain afterwards.
Learn how EXPAREL can give you the pain control you need after surgery…while reducing or eliminating the need for narcotics. With pain under control, you can better focus on healing and getting back to your life.
EXPAREL is indicated for administration into the surgical site to produce postsurgical analgesia.

EXPAREL has not been studied for use in patients younger than 18 years.
Rarely, patients who receive bupivacaine (the active ingredient in EXPAREL) have experienced numbness and tingling in their mouth or lips, lightheadedness, anxiety, or abnormal heart rate.
Speak with your doctor right away if you think you may be experiencing any of these sensations, or if you have other questions regarding possible side effects.
Tell your doctor if you have severe liver or kidney disease.
Products that contain bupivacaine, like EXPAREL, may cause temporary numbness in the area where bupivacaine was injected.

Talk to your doctor to see if EXPAREL is right for you.
The benefit to patients from taking a non-narcotic pain reliever like EXPAREL, and less of a narcotic pain reliever like morphine has not been demonstrated.
