Thank you Claire, I wouldn't have even thought about checking whether it was compatible with high blood pressure,with it being just a cream. x

yes unfortunately it's absorbed through your skin (though not to the same extend as tabs/caps etc) but we would always say don't use it if you have high blood pressure unless you have asked your doctor about it because it can increase your bp

haha you are killing me! Always read the leaflet/ ask gp or pharmacist if you are buying over the counter meds with high blood pressure. I am hoping you know not to take ibuprofen either....

Thanks wongy x

So what are asthmatics supposed to use as paracetamol, ibuprofen and voltarol are all now suspect for asthmatics. I think the evidence is flawed. When I'm ill I suffer worse asthma as my immune system is shot, wether or not I take medicine. I think that's why they relate these medicines to asthma, most people's asthma is worse when ill regardless of medicine. It's like saying exercise makes you live longer. If you look after your body by exercising you probably eat better and take less risks with your body too. I'm not saying exercise is bad, just that the way they survey these things may not be reliable.

You can use this if you're asthmatic or have high BP ... as long as you don't bathe in it / smother loads all over your body ... If you use a small amount then absorption is relatively low and will be fine ... I prescribe all the time ... let you're GP know if you're using a lot of it

Pharmacist 2 wading in - I agree, safe enough for people with high blood pressure. Most people with asthma have taken ibuprofen at some point unwittingly - if you're OK with that, you'll be on with this. Whether it works though...

Agree , This is safe for someone with high blood pressure

This stuff should be banned for animal welfare reasons, three Emus have to be squeezed to get enough gel for just one tube. Emu squeezing is still considered humane in Australia ! whatever next, Koalacream.... ?

To sum up:

- General advice is not to take it if you have high blood pressure or asthma (for good reason).
- If you wish to take it, it's best to consult your GP. Yes, you won't die instantly - but it's always better to be safe than sorry when it comes to your health.

Someone hasn't studied Biology.... They do actually tend to think about these things. Unless of course you are referring to the Daily Mail sort of studies that are absolutely rubbish.
Correlation does not mean causation. But they do additional studies etc.
As for your argument about asthma then that is completely wrong in a million ways. I can't even be bothered to get started.
