Zostrix (Capsaicin) is an over-the-counter medication used to relieve the pain of osteoarthritis. It is also used for the treatment of pain associated with post-herpetic neuralgia (the pain that comes after shingles). The active ingredient in Zostrix is purified capsaicin, a natural extract from chilli peppers. Capsaicin belongs to a class of drugs called topical analgesic agents. It works by acting on a substance in the body which is involved in the transmission of pain impulses from nerve endings near the skin and joints to the brain. With regular use, the heating effect of Capsaicin reduces the amount of substance P, a chemical that acts as a pain messenger in the body.

Side Effects and Precautions

The common side effects of Zostrix are burning sensations at the application site.

Stop using Zostrix and contact your doctor right away if you have any of the serious side effects such as:
• Numbness at the site of application;
• Severe burning, blistering, or swelling;
• Severe irritation at application site;
• Swallowing or breathing difficulties after accidental inhalation of capsaicin odor or dried residue

Warnings and Interactions

Zostrix is a cream, and it should be applied to the affected site only. Read the leaflet carefully and follow the manufacturer’s guide as directed. Do not take it by mouth. Do not use Zostrix on open wounds or sunburned, dry, or irritated skin. Make sure your skin is clean and dry before applying Zostrix. Wash your hands with soap and water immediately after applying this drug. If you are treating your hand or fingers, apply Zostrix and wait at least 30 minutes before washing your hands. Capsaicin may cause a burning sensation wherever it is applied, but the sensation should gradually lessen over time. If the sensation is painful or causes severe discomfort, wash the treated area with soap and cool water. Avoid bathing, swimming, or vigorous exercise within 1 hour before or after applying Capsaicin. Avoid getting Zostrix in your eyes or near your nose where you might inhale it. It may take up to two weeks of applying Zostrix regularly for your symptoms to improve. Pain relief should gradually occur as the substance P in your body decreases. Inform your doctor if your pain does not improve after two weeks of using it or if your symptoms get worse.

Before you start using Zostrix, inform your doctor about your medical history, especially if you have:
• Kidney problems;
• Liver problems;
• An open wound or infected skin bridge

Tell your doctor about all the medications you use, including prescriptions, over-the-counter medications, herbal products, and vitamin supplements. Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant. It is not known if Zostrix will harm a fetus. Inform your doctor if you are breastfeeding or planning to breastfeed. Do not apply Zostrix to your breast area if you are breastfeeding a baby. There may be a drug interaction between Zostrix and other drugs such as transdermal patches for pain and other topical pain medication. Store at room temperature, away from heat and moisture.
