Zostrix, capsaicin 0.025%w/w Topical Cream
Zostrix-HP, capsaicin 0.075%w/w Topical Cream
Most non-prescription topical pain relievers have no scientific evidence that they work to reduce pain. Zostrix is different; it has proven clinical effectiveness in treating the pain associated with arthritis, diabetes and the pain that can come after shingles, demonstrated in years of tightly controlled clinical studies involving sufferers like you. Zostrix passed every test.
Zostrix can be used alone to reduce these types of pain, or for additional pain relief when used along with oral pain medications. But Zostrix works only if you use it regularly and consistently, as directed.
Natural ingredients, naturally good.
Zostrix contains a powerful natural pain reliever derived from red hot chilli peppers called capsaicin. Years of research have gone into creating the superior formulation of purified capsaicin that is found in Zostrix.
Zostrix is not only effective; it's also safe. Zostrix has no known systemic side effects or drug interactions. This means that you can feel comfortable knowing that Zostrix will not interfere with the oral medications that you may take for arthritis or other consitions.
Where can Zostrix be used?
May be useful as an adjunct in the temporary relief of pain associated with arthritis. May be useful for the treatment of post-herpetic neuralgia (pain following shingles).
For the treatment of medically diagnosed painful diabetic neuropathy or postherpetic neuralgia (pain following shingles).
How does Zostrix work?
Zostrix works with your body's chemistry to lower your level of Substance P, the body's 'pain messenger.' When Substance P is reduced, so is the pain. By using Zostrix regularly, 3 to 4 times a day, capsaicin builds up, Substance P fades, and so does your pain.
CAPSICUM OR CAPSAICIN OLEORESIN DOES NOT EQUAL CAPSAICIN!
Don't be fooled by products containing capsicum, capsicum oleoresin or capsaicin oleoresin (contains only a trace of capsaicin). These ingredients are not the same as purified capsaicin. Capsicum and its oleoresin variants contain only small amounts of capsaicin, and they also contain noxious chemicals that work against the pain-relieving effects of purified capsaicin.
How do I use Zostrix?
FOLLOWING ZOSTRIX'S DIRECTIONS IS THE KEY TO YOUR SUCCESS.
For maximum pain relief, proper use of Zostrix is essential. You should apply Zostrix to your painful areas 3 to 4 times daily, as directed. The first few times you use Zostrix, you might experience a burning sensation. Don't worry, that's the capsaicin working to deplete Substance P. The burning sensation should fade within a few days of regular use, as Substance P is exhausted in the treated area. Remember, don't expect results in a day or two. It takes time for the capsaicin to build up and reduce Substance P in the painful area. In a week or two, you'll feel relief. And this relief should continue as long as you continue to use Zostrix regularly and consistently. Before using Zostrix, you should carefully read the package insert.
WHICH ZOSTRIX IS BEST FOR YOU: REGULAR ZOSTRIX OR TRIPLE-STRENGTH ZOSTRIX-HP?
We understand that your pain levels can fluctuate - everyone is unique. For this reason, we created two formulas. For mild to moderate pain, use original-strength Zostrix. For moderate to severe pain, apply the extra pain-fighting power of triple-strength Zostrix-HP.
