Aspercreme (trolamine salicylate) for Back Pain: “Aspercreme works fantastic for me for two herniated discs that shoot pain down my leg. The doctor was amazed as I do not ask for pain medication. The aspercreme with lidocaine is non-greasy and washes right off”

Aspercreme (trolamine salicylate) for Pain: “Using for long term knee and hip pain. Damaged meniscus with arthritis and swelling at knee, and hip tendonitis. Could barely walk sometimes. Aspercreme helped a lot with both and it seems swelling is less, I can stand up faster, start walking sooner. Pain is greatly decreased, though not gone, and I've got more mobility again, as every step isn't agony. I'd say pain decreased from a 7 and 8, down to 3. Especially helped with easing pain from movement during sleep that would wake me. Been using it less than a week, really surprised, hope it keeps working, because can't get pain meds, and longterm oral NSAIDS were causing gastro problems.”

Myoflex Cream (trolamine salicylate) for Pain: “I use myoflex when my pain medication will not ease the constant pain I have from Raynaud's, Fibromyalgia, Rhematoid Arthritis, Osteoarthritis. You name it. My husband buys this cream for me by the case directly from the manufacture. I can not believe how well this works. Better than Morphine. My physical therapist introduced this cream to me over 10 years ago and I have used it since. So does all of my family.”

Aspercreme (trolamine salicylate) for Osteoarthritis: “For over 15 years I've had mid foot pain. First symptom was pain & stiffness when I got up from a sitting position. Slowly through the years, the osteoarthritis became debilitating and interfered with my life. Prescription Celebrex, prescription ointment, and expensive sneakers did little to help (I recently stopped my Celebrex due to bloating and stomach issues). At work, I am on my feet often and by lunch, my feet were in unbelievable pain...crippling pain with a lot of inflammation. Four days ago, I was going through my old medicine supplies and came across Aspercreme. I ended up using the cream with my prescription ointment....and the very first day I came home without major pain & absolutely no inflammation. I have been using it morning and night... so far my feet feel 70 percent better (seems to have helped dramatically with inflammation.. I am thrilled & absolutely amazed by this). I will be buying more of this product & will be sure to have a few backup tubes on hand.”

Aspercreme (trolamine salicylate) for Bursitis: “I get overuse bursitis in both my shoulders from exercise followed by golf followed by exercise etc etc. Tired Aspercreme (standard yellow tube for about $7-8) on a lark really and it worked (still works) great. Works as well--maybe better--than CBD ointment I had been using. Sorry to see all these negative reviews for Aspercreme from people who had it fail--really cheap totally effective solution for me”

Aspercreme (trolamine salicylate) for Pain: “Useless. The only claim that actually is true is that it is "Non irritating". I have level 10 myopathy, with intense cramping, burning, pinging and a paper-cut-like sensation that is only out challenged by a hit-your-shin-against-the-bedpost pain that never goes away.”

Aspercreme (trolamine salicylate) for Pain: “I have to stand where I work for the entire shift ( 8 to 10 ) hours except for a couple breaks, and my feet burned 24/7. I tried aspercreme foot pain creme and it was a great. All of the burning went away. I can walk and sleep again with no pain. Thank you very much for making this product!”

Aspercreme (trolamine salicylate) for Back Pain: “Severe neck and spinal pain (stenosis). My partner massages this into my neck and spine using pressure. This is very comforting. It does not replace pain medication but does help. He has large hands and rubs it in completely; I recommend giving this a try.”

Aspercreme (trolamine salicylate) for Pain: “I worked at Target for a few years. On my feet all the time, and they ached at the end of the day. To get to sleep, I would use a face scrub like Apricot scrub on my feet, then rinse, towel dry, and apply aspercreme. It worked like a charm. I highly recommend this product for the relief of foot pain at the end of a long day's work.”

Aspercreme (trolamine salicylate) for Back Pain: “I suffer from lower back pain, locking up of my back, and sharp pains down my legs. Aspercreme has helped me through some tough times. I supplement use of this item with Aleve as little as possible. If I can go every 3 or 4 days on just one dose I feel that I am doing okay. I stay active this way. Thank you.”

Myoflex Cream (trolamine salicylate) for Pain: “I have used Myoflex cream for osteoarthritis pain, and it WORKS incredibly well. I have tried all the others (Voltaren, etc) and Myoflex is superior. It doesn’t smell, isn’t greasy, and rubs in topically, very easily. This is the best!”

Aspercreme (trolamine salicylate) for Pain: “Aspercream with lidocaine is the best creme I’ve found to help pain. I have ruptured disc and it helps better than pain meds. I rub it on my face and head when having migraines and severe headaches and it works. I wish they had an aspercream bath oil to help generalize arthritis pain throughout the body. I would certainly buy that. I recommend this to people all the time and today I recommended it to a stranger in Walmart trying to find the best pain creme. I’m sure it worked good for her just like it does for me. It’s wonderful.”

Aspercreme (trolamine salicylate) for Back Pain: “It always works for mild to severe pain but in varied degrees. I always use it - see if I need to take any pain pill like Ibuprofen, tramadol or other pain pill. Seldom need more. For chronic pain I use cream & pills both if have to stand or sit long periods. Love it. recommend to everyone. ”

For Pain: “Plantar fasciitis: I combine Aspercreme with Cortizone-10 and rub it in and around my heal before bed. The next morning although still stiff, once stretched there is almost no pain on walking. Other than direct cortizone injections into the tendon nothing else seems to help other than not walking but that is not practicable and still make a living.”

For Pain: “I have Frozen Shoulder (Adhesive Capsulitis). Aspercreme (Trolamine salicylate) had the least/mildest side effects of any other medicine I saw, and the price was great. My mother had a frozen shoulder around 1985. Surgery was recommended, but she wanted to first try the painful stretching exercises to break the adhesions. This helped ease the pain enough to do them and recover. Since then, I have used it occasionally for a cramping deltoid muscle in my neck/shoulder that would send me to bed otherwise. Works really well when Tylenol is not enough, especially when trying to sleep.”

Aspercreme (trolamine salicylate) for Pain: “I have a bad neck. I broke it some 20 years ago. However when the weather changes it hurts badly. So I asked the pharmacist what would be the best topical pain reliever and they told me Aspercream. So I put some on my neck last night, before going to bed. I woke up with a rash and burning on my neck. It's like one of the worst sunburns I've ever had. It worked on my neck pain, but I don't think I can use it anymore,due to the burn I got from it.”

Arthricream (trolamine salicylate) for Raynaud's Syndrome: “Trolamine salicylate (as in Arthricream) for Renaud's did not help at all. I was quite hopeful, having long term issues with both hands and feet, but it made no appreciable difference I could determine. I use a computer keyboard all day at work, and constantly fight a battle against my right hand fingertips being numb (mouse hand)-will have to find other solution.”

Aspercreme (trolamine salicylate) for Rheumatoid Arthritis: “Bought the latest aspercreme w/lidocaine & it did not do anything more to relieve knee pain that the aspercreme without lidocaine. The Australian Cream works better than any thing I have bought The salonpas patches are pretty good too. I would have called, but there is no phone number to call about the product which I found frustrating. Can you suggest a way to contact the company?”

Aspercreme (trolamine salicylate) for Pain: “The $16.57 4oz bottle of Aspercreme was a complete waste of money. The product turned out to be a useless lotion that provided absolutely no pain relief whatsoever. Do not believe the marketing hype; it did not work at all. False advertising of this kind warrants a class action lawsuit.”

Aspercreme (trolamine salicylate) for Pain: “I applied a small amount on my knees. Within 20 minutes, a rash broke out on both legs with severe itching and burning. I had to go to urgent care where they gave me a steroid injection and script for Prednisone. I'm on day 5 of the script and the rash is finally clearing. Script and Urgent care cost me $90, in addition to the money wasted on Aspercreme!”
