Welcome to the Palexia patient support website.
For patients prescribed Palexia SR (tapentadol prolonged release) for severe chronic pain and Palexia (tapentadol) for moderate to severe acute pain.

Developed by GrĂ¼nenthal, this website is a growing resource of information where you can learn more about your treatment and your condition.

We aim to be a very patient focused company in pain management, which is why we are creating support resources around Palexia SR (for severe chronic pain) and Palexia (for moderate to severe acute pain). Here we will help you to understand more about Palexia SR (for severe chronic pain) and Palexia (for moderate to severe acute pain), how they work and what to expect of treatment. We will also look at chronic pain and some changes you can make to your lifestyle to help with your treatment.

However, the management of pain should always be discussed with your doctor and this website is not a replacement for the patient information leaflet (PIL) or your doctor/patient relationship.
