Zostrix Topical Analgesic Cream helps to reduce osteoarthritis pain by up to 50% by week 4 when used regularly on its own (4 times daily application)
- Blocks pain transmission by depleting substance P, your body’s pain messenger
- Works directly at the source to help relieve osteoarthritis pain
- Suitable for everyday use for chronic osteoarthritis
Zostrix contains capsaicin which is the purified extracted alkaloid from red chilli peppers (capsicums); the substance that makes chilli peppers hot. Capsaicin has been shown to help relieve osteoarthritis pain by reducing levels of substance P(1,2,3,4), the body’s pain messenger which is found at the nerve endings and is involved in transmitting pain signals to the brain.
Unlike other treatments such as topical NSAID’s (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) which should not be used for more than 3 weeks consecutively, Zostrix is suitable for everyday use to help relieve chronic osteoarthritis pain.
Please refer to the Consumer Medicine Information for more information.
Active Ingredients: Capsaicin USP 0.025% w/w

It worked well for the purpose I bought it for - no complaints
Having been previously successfully prescribed I renewed my use due to a chronic knee issue - not cured - but massively eased - I can walk again!
Very good. But I have found a cheaper product from another on line site.
Works great highly recommend this product
