What is Flexiseq?
Flexiseq Gel is a topical application to help in the relief of joint pain often associated with arthritic conditions.
What is the ingredient of Flexiseq?
Flexiseq is a drug-free treatment, which uses Sequessome Technology to help lubricate the painful joint.
How does Flexiseq work?
Flexiseq works by inserting Sequessome vesicles into the joint. These vesicles seek out a watery environment, and penetrate the skin once dried, until they reach the joint.
Here they enter into the synovial fluid of the joint, helping lubrication. The accumulation of the vesicle on the cartilage surfaces help relieve pain with this lubricating layer.
How do I use Flexiseq?
Flexiseq should be applied twice daily. Depending on the size of the joint you will require a different amount. You may need to apply up to 3g for the hip, 2g for the knee, and 1g for the hand.
How effective is Flexiseq?
Flexiseq has been shown in clinical studies to achieve a reduction in pain by upto 50%, and improve movement by 40%
What are the side effects of Flexiseq?
The most common side effects of Flexiseq are slight skin reactions, sometimes cause by sensitivity to some of the ingredients in the gel.
How soon does Flexiseq work?
You will usually notice the difference after two days of use.
- There have been no serious side effects reported, relating to Flexiseq.
- Flexiseq can cause minor skin irritations, although not everybody gets them.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 in this leaflet,
please tell your doctor or pharmacist.
- There are no known interactions with other medicines
Before taking any medication, it is important to read the Patient Information Leaflet. You can find information leaflets for your medicines by typing them into the search bar at medicines.org, or by contacting us.
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.
The gel 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 hip bone) 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.
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).
