BEVERLY HILLS, CA--(Marketwire - July 14, 2009) - A recent U.S. Food and Drug
Administration report has found that many Americans may be ingesting more
than the recommended dose of over-the-counter acetaminophen to relieve
pain, following a five-year FDA-sponsored educational campaign that
identifies the risk of taking the drug. Whereas in the past taking pills
seemed to be the most effective, these days people are turning to topical
creams to control pain.
"Taking pain killers can be dangerous. However, what's very moving is there
are alternatives out there for those suffering from arthritis, muscle
aches, joint aches, neck and back pain," said Jack Amin, President and CEO
of AmexDrug Corp. (OTCBB: AXRX), parent company to BioRx Pharmaceuticals, a
subsidiary that manufactures the SPONIX™ skin care product line.
The company offers two topical creams with innovative formulas which
provide relief on contact -- SPONIX Arthritis Muscle & Pain Relief Cream
and SPONIX Tired Feet & Legs -- both of which are recommended by top
doctors, pharmacists, dermatologists and podiatrists.
SPONIX™ Arthritis and Muscle Pain Relief Cream is a greaseless, odor
free, long-lasting topical analgesic that's easy to apply and contains two
unique active ingredients: trolamine salicylate and capsaicin. It's
different from other over-the-counter pain relievers because it includes
the combination of nature's most potent botanical extracts and essential
oils: aloe leaf juice, chamomilla flower extract and amica montana flower
SPONIX™ Tired Feet & Legs (gel applicator) contains stimulating and
invigorating herbs and essential oils that naturally activate
micro-circulation to restore vitality and energy. Whether the person is a
construction worker, senior citizen, or athlete, the product will relax and
relieve their tired, burning feet and aching legs with a lasting effect.
