Reviews for Trolamine salicylate topical

Aspercreme (trolamine salicylate): “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): “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): “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): “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!”

Myoflex Cream (trolamine salicylate): “Myoflex Cream is absolutely amazing. I had really sore shoulders and upperback, from lifting. I used this cream and the pain is now completely gone. Absolutely amazing medicine, I highly recommend it.”

Aspercreme (trolamine salicylate): “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): “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.”

Myoflex Cream (trolamine salicylate): “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): “I rubbed it on my neck an in about 30 minutes I started getting very warm. Went to sleep for about 3 hours and woke up itching, heart started racing. Heart still beating fast 2 hours later. It freaked me out.”

“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.”

“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): “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.”

Aspercreme (trolamine salicylate): “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!”

Aspercreme (trolamine salicylate): “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.”

“Ohhhh my!! I had a very good (at first experience with tramadol and believe it or not the hempvana pain cream. It's over the counter. I used it together and had NO idea that it would even interact. At first, I felt very relaxed and high, then I started having problems with chest tightness and dizziness. I was only taking my prescribed dosage!! And nothing else!! I want to warn others about this. I am just as surprised as everyone else!!!”

Aspercreme (trolamine salicylate): “Was suggested to use this for a pain relief from suspected shingles virus. After a week of use, my shingles was a very mild case and went away, but I was left with severe burning and itching where I had applied the roll-on.”

“Listed as the active ingredient in Hempvana Cream. It’s the same thing as in Aspercream, Myoflex, et al. I believe that the company is trying to cash in on the CBD craze. Thing is that this product contains no CBD oil, just hempseed oil which is not the same thing. I found it totally useless for minor knee and back pain. Local heat worked far better. A large waste of money.”

Blue-Emu Arthritis Pain Relief (trolamine salicylate): “Worked better than I expected, in fact stopped the pain quickly, first time in years that the pain from the way I walk was eased. And it was available but I didn’t know about it. Love it!”
