Potaba is an oral tablet consisting of a nutritional supplement called aminobenzoate potassium. We carry eh brand choice of this medication in 500mg.
Potaba is most commonly used to treat certain types of skin disorders. Some disorders that Potaba may be prescribed for include dermatomyositis, scleroderma, and Peyronie's disease. Dermatomyositis is when the muscle fibers become inflamed and results in a skin rash; the cause of this is still unknown. Scleroderma is when the connective tissue has thickened skin that may have scar, blood vessel problems, varying degrees of inflammation and pain, and is associated with an overactive immune system. Peyronie’s disease is when the development of scar tissue located inside the penis results in abnormal curvature of the penis.
Potaba (aminobenzoate potassium) is effective because it is thought to help make skin more flexible and softens plaque while also increasing the use of oxygen in the skin.
