    Slight (for tendinitis)
  • Side effects
    None
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Somewhat hard to take
Dosage: As needed
Advice & Tips: I haven't had any nausea with the gel. I honestly don't Remember if I ever took an oral form of this. I will have to go back & look at my records. The difficulty i have using it is because i can't always reach the areas that need it, you need to make sure you rub it in well & it's dry before putting socks on & it flakes off a bit when your rubbing it in. I haven't found it that effective for the pain, but does reduce some swelling caused by inflammation. I prefer compound creams and lidocaine patches. It sometimes makes that area of my skin softer,which is definitely a plus :)
