Best Shingles Pain Meds I ever Had. Thanks NeurogesX Inc.

The 8% capsicum I think requires pain medication to handle the side effects. Feels like a severe sunburn. Applied Benzocane to relieve pain!

I got absolutely no relief from nerve pain after contracting shingles. The patch was applied by a doctor in the clinic office. It did not get even warm as I was told to expect it to get very hot. After 60 minutes it was removed and nothing has improved. Even with insurance, I still paid almost $400 for this patch plus I haven't received a bill from the clinic yet but it certainly hasn't been worth the time and money.

12 years after having shingles, pain reappeared, last year, with a brutal force (PHN). Expected the Qutenza to provide some longer lasting relief. But it lasted just one day and a more intense pain returned. Since I am a Canadian, I could try this option in US (Florida) only. Nobody consulted with me some other options till after the unsuccessful Qutenza application. I am now testing some other way of keeping my pain under some control. I may report on it later.
