Introducing Flexiseq

FLEXISEQ is a topically applied gel. FLEXISEQ is specially formulated to combat joint pain associated with osteoarthritis. Daily application in the morning and evening is enough to start to bring about real improvement in joint pain in as little as two days.

Commenting on the launch of Flexiseq, which was exclusively launched to the British high street by LloydsPharmacy and is now available online, Prime Minister David Cameron said "… it is great that less than three years later this innovative treatment for osteoarthritis sufferers has now arrived in the UK."

What is Flexiseq:

Flexiseq is a gel which is applied topically to the affected joint and works by penetrating into the synovial fluid between the bones, restoring some of the lubricating properties lost through the breakdown of cartilage. It is this loss of cartilage that is responsible for the pain and reduced mobility in osteoarthritis.

The benefits of Flexiseq:

• Can help ease the pain and stiffness in your joints
• Suitable for all osteoarthritis patients
• A safe drug-free gel that avoids the heart and stomach risks common to most osteoarthritis drug treatments
• Can be used safely with medicines for osteoarthritis and/or other medical conditions

The benefits of Flexiseq

How to use:

• Apply twice daily to the affected joint. It is recommended that you apply FLEXISEQ in the morning and at night to skin that is clean and dry.
• Use enough gel to evenly cover the whole joint. For example, when treating the knee, we recommend using a gel length of around 7cm (roughly half the length of the FLEXISEQ 50g tube).
• It is important to allow FLEXISEQ to dry before covering. Failure to do so may impair the absorption of the product. The gel should dry after no more than 15 minutes. If drying time takes longer, just use a little less next time

Applying Flexiseq

Frequently asked questions

Is it just applied directly to the joint?

It should not be applied directly over the bone, but to the soft tissue around it to allow it to penetrate through to the synovial fluid between the bones. It should also be allowed to dry, which may take about 10 minutes. The active component of the gel will only begin to penetrate through the tissues once it has dried on the surface.

How quickly does it work?

The pain relief appears to improve with repeated application. Whilst the manufacturers claim relief can be experienced in as little as 2 days, realistically this would take 2 weeks…but then still continues to improve gradually over 12 weeks. This was seen to be almost comparable to oral celecoxib.

Who should not use it?

Anybody with skin lesions or any dermatological conditions in the treatment area should not use Flexiseq as its safety and efficacy has not been tested in such individuals. It should also not be used where they have already been prescribed another topical treatment, such as an NSAID gel.

Is it available on prescription?

No. Flexiseq is classed as a medical device and is not included in the relevant section of the Drug Tariff. Therefore cannot be prescribed on NHS prescriptions.
