Possible Interaction: Capsaicin and EMLA





Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

In conclusion, pre-treatment with EMLA significantly reduced the burning sensation from capsaicin and attenuated heat hyperalgesia during treatment.

Average and peak pain ratings were significantly lower at the EMLA site during the first 15-30 min of capsaicin treatment.
EMLA fails to produce a long lasting attenuation of the pain induced by topical application of 1% capsaicin.
These results argue against the use of EMLA to block pain to topical capsaicin during the treatment of neurogenic pain.

CONCLUSION:We observed that the combination of capsaicin and EMLA in a low concentration is as effective in managing venous cannulation as when applied as an individual drug alone.

Yosipovitch et al. (1) showed that EMLA significantly reduces the burning sensation from capsaicin , whereas Fuchs et al. (2) argue against the use of EMLA to block pain due to topical capsaicin.

This study also suggests the existence of a synergistic effect of capsaicin and EMLA on the process of neurogenic inflammation.
