zacin (capsaicin) cream.

Postby elfval » Mon Feb 11, 2013 6:34 pm

I have been prescribed this cream, 0.025%. i like the sound of it because it is made from chilli peppers not chemicals. it says pain releif will start within 2 wks of treatment and full effect after a month, thing is my pain moves all over my body so im not going to be putting it on the same places all the time, so will i benefit from the cumulative effect? anyone had any experience with this? Its not burning me so luckily im not getting the side effects :)

I've used a capsaicin cream before, can't remember the name of it though. There is a cumulative effect to some extent but you should hopefully get some benefit even if you're moving it around. If you're getting nothing from it at the moment I wouldn't expect much in the future. You should be feeling some heat from it even without building it up.

Worked with a guy who's wife was a drug rep for the company who produce it , she thought as I didn't have pain in one specific spot that the effects might not be strong enough for me. Her way of explaining ...its a bit like the topical iproprofen gels , they target a specific area but then some of the actual ingredient travel wider in you body due to entering the blood stream

Seem it has amazing results for very specific pain such as back pain /joint pain so if you also have a sore back or something it should do well . Good luck for as we all know ......everyone of us is different and it might just work for you
