About NIMESULIDE+METHYL SALICYLATE+MENTHOL+CAPSAICIN

CAPSAICIN+MENTHOL+METHYL SALICYLATE+NIMESULIDE belongs to a class of medications called 'topical analgesic' (pain killer) primarily used to relieve joint pain, low back pain, muscle sprain and sports injuries. Besides this, it also reduces pain and swelling in muscles and joints in the conditions of joint disorders like osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Arthritis is a condition that causes swelling of one or more joints resulting in pain and stiffness of joints that worsen over time.

CAPSAICIN+MENTHOL+METHYL SALICYLATE+NIMESULIDE is a combination of four painkillers/analgesics: Nimesulide, Capsaicin, Methyl salicylate and one cooling agent (Menthol). Nimesulide and Methyl salicylate belong to the class of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAIDs) or painkillers that works by blocking the release of certain chemical messengers in the brain responsible for causing pain and symptoms of inflammation such as redness and swelling. Capsaicin is an analgesic that works by affecting the chemical messenger in the brain (neurotransmitter) that transmits pain signals to the brain, thereby reducing the perception of pain. Menthol acts as a cooling agent that relieves pain initially by cooling the skin, followed by warming it up. This action of cooling and warming up distracts from the pain and helps improve blood circulation.

CAPSAICIN+MENTHOL+METHYL SALICYLATE+NIMESULIDE is only for external use. Take a small amount of CAPSAICIN+MENTHOL+METHYL SALICYLATE+NIMESULIDE on the finger and apply it as a thin layer on the clean and dry affected area. Avoid contact of CAPSAICIN+MENTHOL+METHYL SALICYLATE+NIMESULIDE with nose, ears, mouth or eyes. If CAPSAICIN+MENTHOL+METHYL SALICYLATE+NIMESULIDE comes in contact with these areas accidentally, rinse with water thoroughly. Your doctor will advise you how often you use CAPSAICIN+MENTHOL+METHYL SALICYLATE+NIMESULIDE based on your medical condition. In some cases, you may experience redness, itching, irritation or a burning sensation at the site of application. Most of these side effects of CAPSAICIN+MENTHOL+METHYL SALICYLATE+NIMESULIDE do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if the side effects persist or worsen, please consult your doctor.

If you are known to be allergic to CAPSAICIN+MENTHOL+METHYL SALICYLATE+NIMESULIDE or any other medicines, please tell your doctor. If pregnant or breastfeeding, please inform your doctor before taking CAPSAICIN+MENTHOL+METHYL SALICYLATE+NIMESULIDE. Do not consume alcohol with CAPSAICIN+MENTHOL+METHYL SALICYLATE+NIMESULIDE as it may increase the risk of stomach bleeding. Do not apply heat or wrap the treated area of the skin with bandages. Avoid using CAPSAICIN+MENTHOL+METHYL SALICYLATE+NIMESULIDE in more than prescribed doses or on a large area of skin for a prolonged time, as it may cause adverse effects. Do not apply CAPSAICIN+MENTHOL+METHYL SALICYLATE+NIMESULIDE on cuts, wounds or damaged skin. If you have asthma, high blood pressure, diabetes, blood clots, bleeding in the stomach or intestines, stomach ulcers, oedema (swelling due to fluid retention or overload), liver, kidney or heart problems, inform your doctor before taking CAPSAICIN+MENTHOL+METHYL SALICYLATE+NIMESULIDE.

Diet & Lifestyle Advise

  • Maintain a healthy body weight, as obesity may also cause joint pains. Please do not go for heavy exercise as it may increase your joint pain in arthritis. Instead, you can do stretching, low impact aerobic exercises like walking on a treadmill, bike riding and swimming. You can also strengthen your muscle strength by lifting light weights.
  • Include more glucosamine, chondroitin sulfate, Vitamin D, and calcium-enriched supplements. Besides this, turmeric and fish oils can help reduce inflammation in the tissue.
  • In the chronic conditions of arthritis or joint pain, fish like salmon, trout, tuna and sardines. These fishes are enriched with omega-3 fatty acids, which help in reducing inflammation (redness and swelling) and protect the heart.
  • Your sitting posture is important, especially when you have pain and inflammation. Try to sit as little as possible and only for a short time (10-15 min). Use back support like a rolled-up towel at the back of your curve to minimize pain. Besides this, you can use a footrest if required.
  • Avoid consumption of alcohol and quit smoking.
