Bio-Scriptives’ ExtremePR (Pain Reliever) is a non-greasy topical pain relieving lotion designed for temporary relief from minor muscle and joint aches and pains. The product’s fast onset of action reduces minor pain and stiffness and cools and relaxes muscles and joints.
ExtremePR is designed to provide superior use advantages over other topical products. These use advantages include: no greasy residue, and quickly fading smell, as well as effective pain relief.
Topically applied ExtremePR is safer than most common oral pain relievers prescribed by doctors and also available without a prescription (e.g., aspirin, acetaminophen, NSAIDs, and Cox-2 inhibitors), which can cause an array of dangerous side effects such as gastrointestinal bleeding, ulcers, acute liver failure, heart attack and stroke.
Benefits of ExtremePR
- Larger bottle compared to other brands (4oz) with convenient pump
- 4 to 6 hours of relief from sore aching muscles and joints

More information about ExtremePR
Menthol, one of the ingredients in ExtremePR, has been shown to be an effective topical pain reliever and does not carry the risks and side effects associated with orally taken ibuprofen, acetaminophen, or aspirin, such as stomach bleeding and negative interactions with other medications.
The multi-layered ExtremePR formulation works in part by using menthol to replace the pain sensations with a cooling feeling to provide temporary relief from minor localized pain. When applied to the skin, ExtremePR’s ingredients are absorbed by the skin, allowing the menthol to create a cooling sensation, while providing temporary pain relief.
ExtremePR absorbs quickly and completely leaving no obnoxious odor or greasy residue. It is as convenient as taking a pill without the side effects of oral medication.
Dangers of oral pain medications
Many of the oral pain medications recommended by doctors and sold over-the-counter, including Tylenol, ibuprofen, and aspirin, can cause serious side effects, which, in some cases, have been fatal. The common classifications of pain medications include:
- Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDS), drugs such as Advil, Aleve, ibuprofen, naproxen, salicylates (aspirin), and Cox-2 inhibitors
- Acetaminophen (Paracetamol), the active ingredient in Tylenol products
- Opiate-based medications, such as Vicodin, Percocet, hydrocodone, oxycodone
The most widely quoted NSAID mortality estimates of 16,500 annual NSAID-related U.S. deaths come from the Arthritis, Rheumatism, and Aging Medical Information System (ARAMIS) database although a more recent study presented in the American Journal of Gastroenterology put the U.S. NSAID-related annual death rate closer to 5,000, including 1,600 deaths related to low dose aspirin. Higher doses of aspirin or prolonged use at lower doses can also increase the likelihood of perforated ulcers and gastrointestinal bleeding, which are also the biggest known risks from taking NSAIDs. Cox-2 inhibitors, a type of NSAID, may increase cardiac risk (e.g., heart attack, stroke) at high doses as well.
Acetaminophen does not fare much better as acetaminophen-related liver injury is the leading cause of acute liver failure. Additionally, acetaminophen side effects cause an estimated 18,184 emergency room visits each year. Opiate-based medications, often given after surgery or a major accident, can also cause problems due to their addictive properties and can lead to potential overdoses.

Q: Why is Extreme Pain Reliever safer than my oral pain medications?
A: Oral Non-Steroidal Medication (NSAIDs) which include ibuprofen and aspirin among others have all been associated with stomach bleeding or other gastrointestinal issues. Drugs like acetaminophen (Tylenol) has been associated with liver toxicity and death. Additionally, these oral over the counter drugs can cause negative interactions with prescription and other over the counter medications. Since ExtremePR is topical, it works differently and does not exhibit these risks.
Q: How often can you apply Extreme Pain Reliever?
A: The benefits last between 4 to 6 hours. Adults and children 2 years of age and older should apply product to the affected area not more than 3 to 4 times daily. Children under 2 years of age should consult a doctor.
Q: Does ExtremePR have a distinct scent?
A: ExtremePR has a fresh menthol scent that will disappear after about 10 minutes. The scent comes from the menthol in the product that works to help temporarily relieve minor pain. In addition, ExtremePR has a disappearing formula that absorbs completely into the skin eliminating the greasy residue and annoying petrolatum mess associated with topical products. ExtremePR is applied and disappears providing the safety of a topical product with the convenience of an oral medication.
