Chronic Pain Management

Chronic pain management

Chronic pain can lock you out of life…but it doesn't have to.

Struggling through chronic pain problems like arthritis, fibromyalgia, migraine headaches, and nerve and muscle pain does not have to be a daily activity. Every individual is unique, and the types of pain experienced can be equally diverse. By working with a compounding pharmacist, your physician can prescribe treatments tailored specifically for your pain management needs. Compounding is effective in providing relief with potentially fewer side effects and less overall medication.

Alternate Dosages

Personalized medication is key.    

Many commonly prescribed pain relief medications help the symptoms associated with chronic conditions such as arthritis, but they can also result in stomach irritation and other unwanted side effects. Compounding can provide alternate methods of delivery by combining the ingredients of traditional oral pain medications in a topical gel, cream or spray form that can be applied directly to the site of the pain. For migraine sufferers, pain medication may be administered through nasal sprays or flavored troches or lozenges. These dosage forms bypass the gastrointestinal (GI) tract, providing optimal results with less GI irritation.

Combined Formulations

Everyone experiences some sort of pain in their lives.    

Often, fibromyalgia patients are placed on a variety of medications to take care of all the symptoms associated with the disease. On many occasions, these multiple products can be eliminated by a specially prepared compound that combines several medications into a single topical gel, ready to be applied directly to the affected areas.

Strength Variations

Pain relief can be customized to your specific needs.    

Because patients vary in size, symptoms and pain tolerance, commercially available medications often do not provide appropriate dosage strength. Through compounding, a physician and pharmacist can customize a medication to the exact amount needed by the patient.
