Can Children Use Qutenza?

Qutenza is not approved for use in individuals under the age of 18 years old. Talk with your child's healthcare provider about the benefits and risks of using Qutenza in children.

Off-Label Uses of Qutenza

On occasion, your healthcare provider may recommend Qutenza for something other than treating postherpetic neuralgia. At least theoretically, it seems likely that Qutenza may be used off-label to treat other types of nerve pain or perhaps even arthritis.
