    There is no real comparison, its a completely different use. The cream is topical for specific areas of pain, while oral medications are systemic and go through your entire body. If you have a specific area of targeted pain, give it a shot! If you're looking to slather your entire body (or half your body) its not going to happen.

    Trigger point injections did nothing for me except make an already aggravated muscle sore. I have had intermittent luck with Lidocaine patches but they just provide short-term relief (6 to 8 hours)
