Everyone experiences some sort of pain in their lives. It can take the form of a stress-induced headache, a muscle group strained from sports activities, or be the result of an injury at work or an automobile accident. For some, pain can be chronic in nature and something that you live with on a daily basis.
Pain is the most common symptom for which individuals seek medical help. Acute pain easily can evolve into chronic pain, which can become difficult to treat. Many commonly prescribed, commercially available pain relief medications help the symptoms associated with chronic conditions such as arthritis, fibromyalgia, migraine headaches, and other nerve and muscle pain, but they can also result in unwanted side effects such as drowsiness, dizziness or stomach irritation. Many patients taking these medications come to accept these conditions as part of daily life, but you can find a better solution through our compounding pharmacy.
Compounded Transdermal Prescription Medications for pain management have fewer side effects that oral medications have. The topical medications can include non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, muscle relaxants, anesthetics and adjunct pain relievers. Many patients experience stomach irritation from taking NSAIDS such as ibuprofen or naproxen. Also, oral muscle relaxants can leave you extremely drowsy and unable to function. We can combine such medications into a topical preparation to treat your symptoms.
Some of the most common medical conditions that a compounded medication could benefit include:
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Chronic Pain Management
