Capsaicin Cream

I had a video call with a pain consultant last month and she suggested using Capsaicin cream as a possible way of reducing my painkiller intake. I've been using it for about 4 weeks now - on my worst joints - shoulders and left knee. I think it's helping - I've reduced my painkiller intake and I'm walking more freely. I'm aware that it might also be due to the build up of Amgevita in my system as I started that in July but I'll take any options available.

In the UK the cream is on prescription only.
