Dorofen® Capsules – Patient Information


Dorofen® is composed of two active ingredients in one formula for oral use, a-D-Glucosamine Sulphate (brand LGS862) 500mg and Ginkgo Biloba Dried Leaf Extract 50mg, packed in white, hard gelatin capsules imprinted with the words “Dorofen” and “LIPTIS”.

How Does Dorofen® Work

Dorofen® is an exclusive formulation that supplies the body with glucosamine, the necessary building block for the cartilage and for the maintenance of the synovial fluid in the joints that keeps them healthy and moving comfortably. Thus, Dorofen® prevents the progression of osteoarthritis and restores the physiological balance to rebuild deteriorated cartilage. Ginkgo flavonoids in DorofenⓇ improves circulation particularly in the muscles to enhance and promote painless walking especially in elderly patients who suffer from insufficient circulation in the calf muscles.


Dorofen® is indicated for treatment of osteoarthritis of the knees, hips, shoulders, or vertebral column. Dorofen® is also used in the treatment of intermittent claudication (interruption of blood circulation in leg muscles), bursitis, tendonitis, and synovitis.

Dorofen should be taken one (1) capsule, after food, three (3) times a day until improvement is achieved, which usually takes two (2) – four (4) weeks, depending on the degree of deterioration in the joint. The dosage may then be reduced to one (1) or two (2) capsules a day for maintenance, as recommended by your doctor.

Why Dorofen Is The Preferred Medicine For Osteoarthritis

DorofenⓇ prevents progression of osteoarthritis. It helps the regeneration of the deteriorated cartilage in the joints by supplying the body with the necessary material for rebuilding the cartilage and maintaining the synovial fluid in joints.
It improves the circulation, particularly in the muscles, which promotes painless walking, especially in elderly patients suffering from intermittent claudication.

these effects together produce a synergistic effect (complementary additive effects) in helping the relief of the symptoms of osteoarthritis and preserving a free comfortable movement of the affected joints.

  • The bioavailability of a-D-Glucosamine sulphate (brand LGS862) in DorofenⓇ makes it superior to any other brand in treating osteoarthritis
