Improving Blood Circulation

ORub is a healthcare product made in the USA and sold on, however, there is no consistent and exact information about the manufacturer. ORub is also known as Dr. Pergolizzi Pain Relief Cream - 4 oz. (114 g). It is designed to relieve the symptoms of muscle aches, arthritis, back pain, bursitis, tendonitis, and more. It was developed by Dr. Joseph Pergolizzi, a pain physician and researcher. It promises to start working in minutes by improving blood circulation. This cream is said to absorb into skin quickly with no irritation, however, you may have a specific menthol scent left on your skin. It requires no prescription. ORub has no official website, thus, there is limited information of the product's ingredients and possible side effects. The company doesn't seem to manufacture any other products. Let's find out whether the promises are true or it is another scam.

As the manufacturer doesn't list the ingredients of the product anywhere I had to do my own research. I found out that the only active ingredient in ORub is Menthol. This substance is generally used topically for the relief of discomfort and minor pain associated with the conditions such as bruising, bursitis, arthritis, tendonitis, backache, muscle strains or sprains, and cramping. Some people use it for other conditions as a topical analgesic. There are a number of precautions for you to take before staring to use Menthol -

Do not use Menthol if you have ever noticed allergic reactions to this remedy, or if you are allergic to any other substances, medicines, supplements or foods. Consult your doctor right away if you have any concerns. You should be aware of the fact that some medical conditions may interact with Menthol. Inform your pharmacist if you have any of the following medical conditions: if you have damaged, scraped, cut, or irritated skin at the application site; if you are pregnant, breast-feeding or plan to become a mother in the nearest future. Some drugs may interact with menthol too but there is lack of information on the issue.

You are recommended to ask your doctor if menthol may interact with other drugs you take or use in any other way. Still, it would be a wise decision to check with your doctor before you start using this medicine. There is no information about any other ingredients in ORub. There is high risk that the product contains some chemical, artificial or extremely harmful components. I would not trust my health to an unknown medication. Let us check whether it may carry any potential dangers for your health.

The manufacturer of ORub does not mention any potential side effects or allergic reactions associated with this drug. However, it doesn't mean that this product is safe for the human health. Taking into account the fact that there is no complete ingredient list of the cream, there is a chance that this product may carry potential dangers. The ingredients may be used in the wrong combination or have a too low effectiveness. By the way, the dose of Menthol in the product is unknown.

According to, Menthol is not expected to cause side effects when used topically. But if you notice any unusual skin reactions of other effects, ask for medical attention as soon as possible, especially if you experience any of the following severe side effects: hives; rash; itching; tightness in the chest; difficulty breathing; swelling of the face; irritation at the application site; skin redness, etc. In fact, these are the symptoms of a severe allergic reaction.

Menthol is designed for external use only. In case if it gets into your eyes or mouth, wash these parts of your body with lukewarm water. If irritation doesn't vanish, ask for medical help immediately. Do not use ORub with a heating pad because this application method may blister your skin. Never use this product on damaged skin or open wounds. Consult your doctor if you have redness over the application area.

There is a valuable piece of advice. When using ORub avoid contact with your eyes and do not bandage the affected zone tightly. Stop using the product and visit your doctor if your condition worsens or symptoms do not leave within a week, if you have excessive skin irritation or skin redness, if the negative symptoms disappear and occur again in several days. Let us have a look at the testimonials of people who have used ORub.

"I saw no real pain relief after using ORub for almost two weeks. This product is not as effective as store brands I have tried. This cream is too expensive when compared to other products of the kind."

"I have just had heart surgery and I experience some movement difficulties. I am going to have knee surgery soon. I bought to use ORub on my knee to relieve pain at least for a short period of time but in vain. It hasn't helped me bit. Even if I increase the dose and frequency of application, it does not help."

"ORub had zero effect on my knee. This product is nothing but a plain menthol rub but too expensive. It is better to buy BenGay for six dollars. This is the worst and most expensive product I have ever used for my painful joints!"

ORub can be ordered and bought on some retails stores. The cost may differ from store to store. Walmart sells ORub - Dr. Pergolizzi Pain Relief Cream - 4 oz. for $27.47.

I don't think that ORub can be helpful for relieving your pain and discomfort associated with arthritis and some other conditions. Many users report ineffectiveness of this product. They are disappointed with the product due to its high price too. ORub does not even have its official website and lacks information about the manufacturer. I cannot recommend this cream to usage. You should better look for a cheaper and more effective product made by a reputable company.
