Flanax Liniment

Product Indications

Flanax Liniment has analgesic, anesthetic and anti-inflammatory properties, making its use ideal to quickly reduce muscle and joint pain.

You can use both Flanax Liniment and Flanax Pain Reliever Tablets together.

Use the Flanax Liniment first since the analgesic effect of the Liniment is quick (30 minutes) and also take a Flanax Pain Reliever Tablet to reduce muscle aches, pains, and strains. The Flanax Pain Reliever Tablet would take 2 hours to reach peak concentration so 2 hours after the application of the Liniment the tablets would start working and provide another 8-12 hours of pain relief.

How does it work?

Menthol- dilates the blood vessels, causing a sensation of coldness followed by an analgesic effect.

Methyl salicylate is a salicylic acid derivative and is used topically in rubefacient preparations for the relief of pain in musculoskeletal, joint, and soft-tissue disorders. It is a derivative of aspirin and reduces inflammation.

Capsicum- Capsaicin is a neuropeptide-active agent that affects the synthesis, storage, transport, and release of substance P. Substance P is thought to be the principal chemical mediator of pain impulses from the periphery to the central nervous system.

Capsaicin renders skin and joints insensitive to pain by depleting and preventing reaccumulation of substance P in peripheral sensory neurons.
