At Community Compounding Pharmacy, we are ready to help you get started on a new path for controlling pain.
Chronic pain affects approximately 100 million Americans. It is more common than diabetes, heart disease and cancer combined. Effective pain management often requires a combination of treatments.
Many oral pain medications have unwanted side effects including, but not limited to, drowsiness, impaired ability to drive, stomach upset and ulcers.
Topical and transdermal pain creams and gels may be an alternative or supplement to traditional pain medications.
By combining various agents which utilize different mechanisms to alter the sensation of pain, smaller concentrations of each medication can be used.
Formulas that provide high local concentrations at the site of application may contain one or more ingredients from classes of pain medications such as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (ND/AIDs), anesthetics, neuroleptics and muscle relaxants.
Delivery method is most important. Speak with your health care provider about whether a compounded pain medication may be right for you.
