Description

When joint pain and stiffness holds you back from doing the things you love, FlexiSEQ Max Strength’s unique drug-free action works only where it’s needed to lubricate joints affected by osteoarthritis.

Apply FlexiSEQ Max Strength twice a day in the morning and evening on hands, knees, hips, shoulders and other joints affected by osteoarthritis to provide pain relief and fight joint stiffness in a couple of days.

Unlike traditional pain killers that temporarily relieve inflammation to mask pain, FlexiSEQ Max Strength’s drug-free treatment lubricates the cartilage in joints to help you regain pain-free mobility.

It can also be used alongside traditional pain medication with no drug-to-drug interactions. This is particularly beneficial to the following osteoarthritis patients:

  • Patients looking for a drug-free formula with reduced systematic side effects.
  • Patients who need treatment that can be used longer than 14 days.
  • Patients for whom NSAIDs are not suitable.
  • Patients taking medications that may interact with traditional painkillers.

FlexiSEQ Max Strength helps to relieve pain and improve joint mobility thanks to billions of plant-based, oily droplets called Sequessomes.

Activated when our gel dries on the skin, these tiny, flexible droplets pass through the skin and into target joints, where they localise on cartilage surfaces to form a lubricating layer.

Directions

Flexiseq should be applied twice daily to the affected joint, usually in the morning and the evening. Use enough gel to evenly cover the soft tissue around the joint.

For the knee: a twice daily dose of 2.2 g corresponding to approximately 7 cm line of gel as squeezed from the tube is recommended. The gel should not be applied to the patella (knee cap) and should include the area at the back of the knee. FLEXISEQ must be allowed to dry before covering; drying should take no longer than 10 minutes if the product is applied to clean, dry skin. If drying takes longer than this, ensure that the skin is dry (for example if applying after a bath or shower) and try using a little less gel. Alternatively a hair dryer [on a low / cool setting] can be used to speed up the drying time. If the drying time is considerably less than 10 minutes then a little more gel can be used next time. Please wash your hands after applying the gel.

For the hip: Locate the edge of your pelvis (or hipbone) at your side and apply the gel approximately two inches below where you can no longer feel bone but soft tissue. Do not spread towards the buttocks but instead towards your centre line. It is difficult to give precise dosing amounts for the hip as the size of this joint can vary widely from patient to patient. If you consider yourself to be of average weight, use approximately 3 g (approximately 10 cm line of gel as squeezed from the tube) to cover an area of approximately the size of your hand. If you believe you are above average size, you may need to apply a little more. You will know if you have applied the correct amount as it should take around 10 minutes to dry. For the first few applications the amount applied may need to be increased or decreased to achieve a 10 minute drying time. Alternatively a hair dryer [on a low / cool setting] may be used gently to dry the area. In order to achieve optimum effect, FLEXISEQ gel should be applied twice daily to the whole affected joint, not rubbed in but left to dry. The joint should not be covered until the gel has completely dried. Please wash your hands after applying the gel.

For the shoulder: It is difficult to give precise dosing amounts for the shoulder as the size of this joint and location of the pain varies from patient to patient. If you consider yourself to be of average weight, use approximately 2.2 g corresponding to approximately 7 cm line of gel as squeezed from the tube to cover the area corresponding to the location of your pain. If you believe you are above average size, you may need to apply a little more. You will know if you have applied the correct amount as it should take around 10 minutes to dry (although may remain tacky after this time). Alternatively a hair dryer [on a low / cool setting] may be used gently to dry the area. For the first few applications the amount applied may need to be increased or decreased to achieve a 10 minute drying time. In order to achieve optimum effect, FLEXISEQ gel should be applied twice daily to the whole affected joint, not rubbed in but left to dry. The joint should not be covered until the gel has completely dried. Please wash your hands after applying the gel.

Warnings

There have been no serious side effects reported, relating to Flexiseq.

In clinical trials Flexiseq caused minor skin irritations, mainly erythema, dry skin and rash – usually mild to moderate intensity, transient and fading away by itself. A treatment interruption was not necessary. 

  • Side effects affecting the skin and subcutaneous tissue (the soft tissue beneath the skin) could occur after approximately two weeks of treatment, but should disappear within a further few weeks if you continue to use the product. In case of continuing side effects, you may first reduce the dose (e.g. from twice daily to once daily). If this does not improve the condition, you may discontinue treatment with the product until the event resolves, which could be within a few days. You may then be able to restart administration of the product after improvement of the skin condition if there is no evidence of allergic reactions resulting from skin contact. 
  • In the event of serious side effects, or if you notice any side effects not listed please tell your doctor or pharmacist.
  • There are no known interactions with medicines.
