Can I apply Flexiseq® directly to my joints?
It should not be applied directly over the bone,
but to the soft tissue around it to allow it to penetrate through to the
synovial fluid between the bones. It should also be allowed to dry, which may
take about 10 minutes. The active component of the gel will only begin to
penetrate through the tissues once it has dried on the surface.
How quickly does Flexiseq® take to work?
The pain relief appears to improve with repeated application. Whilst the manufacturers claim easing of symptoms can be experienced in as little as 2 days, realistically this would take 2 weeks…but then still continues to improve gradually over 12 weeks. This was seen to be almost comparable to oral celecoxib.
Who should not use it?
Anybody with skin lesions or any dermatological conditions in the treatment area should not use Flexiseq® as its safety and efficacy has not been tested in such individuals. It should also not be used where they have already been prescribed another topical treatment, such as an NSAID gel..
Is Flexiseq® available on prescription?
No. Flexiseq® is classed as a medical device and is not included in the relevant section of the Drug Tariff. Therefore cannot be prescribed on NHS prescriptions
