Pain Management

Pain is the most common symptom for why patients seek medical help. Temporary pain may evolve into chronic pain, which could become difficult to treat.

Chronic conditions such as arthritis, fibromyalgia, migraine headaches, and other nerve and muscle pain use commercially available pain relief drugs to help symptoms. Commercial products may cause unwanted side effects, such as drowsiness, dizziness, or stomach irritation. Changing the dosage form from oral/systemic capsules and tablets to a localize topical cream may avoid some of these side effects. 

Compounded prescription options include:

  • A topical gel, cream or spray that is applied directly to the site of the pain.

  • A troche that dissolves under the tongue, a nasal spray, or a suppository.

  • Combining multiple medications into a single dose capsule or topical preparation

  • A patient-specific strength.

  • A form of medicine that best suits the patient’s needs.

Physicians and patients may find an alternative solution through pharmacy compounding.
