Do you suffer from pain?
Topical Compounded Pain Creams Can Bring You Relief
Struggling through chronic pain or the side effects of pain medication does not have to be a daily activity. The Organic Compounding Pharmacy offers patients customized options for pain medication. Compounding is the art and science of preparing customized medications for patients. It provides valuable benefits to those for whom pain management has become a way of life.
Every individual is unique, and the types of pain experienced can be equally diverse. By working with a compounding pharmacist, your healthcare provider can prescribe treatments tailored specifically for your pain management needs.
ALTERNATIVE DOSAGE FORMS
Many patients experience stomach irritation or other unpleasant side effects from taking pain medication. Some have difficulty taking the medication in its commercially available form.
Pain management compounding can provide alternate methods of delivery to make the process easier. Instead of a capsule or tablet, pain medications often can be compounded as dosage forms such as:
- A transdermal cream can be applied directly to the site of the pain and absorbed through the skin.
Compounded pain creams bypass the gastrointestinal tract, providing optimal results with less GI irritation, and help patients who have difficulty swallowing pills, removing yet another source of aggravation.
Some chronic pain sufferers are placed on a variety of medications to help address the symptoms associated with their condition. On many occasions, multiple medications can be combined into a single dose of a specially prepared compound that combines the medications into a single capsule or topical preparation, providing greater convenience for the patient.
Patients vary in size, symptoms, and pain tolerance, commercially available medications sometimes may not provide the appropriate dosage strength for an individual patient.
Through compounding, a prescriber and pharmacist can customize the dosage to the exact amount the patient requires, and find a dosage form that best suits the patient’s needs.
