The Compounding Solution
Pharmacy compounding offers patients customized options for pain medication. Compounding is the art and science of preparing customized medications for patents.
Every individual is unique, and the types of pain experienced can be equally diverse. By working with a ProCompounding pharmacy, your healthcare provider can prescribe treatments tailored specifically for your pain management needs.
Topical Pain Therapy
A relatively new and innovative approach to relieving certain types of pain is compounded transdermal (topical) therapy. The medication is formulated to penetrate deep into the painful area, and provides high concentrations of very effective medications RIGHT WHERE IT HURTS! Oral pain medication can often lead to drowsiness, nausea,
and other unwanted side effects. Ifyou suffer from chronic pain, including fibromyalgia, back / joint, plantar fasciitis, or neuropathy ask your healthcare provider to consider topical pain relief. Pain medications can be compounded into the following dosage forms including:
- Topical Gels, Creams, and Sprays
- Flavored Lozenges
- Nasal Spray
Some chronic pain sufferers are placed on a variety of medications to help address the symptoms associated with their condition. Multiple medications can be combined and compounded into a single capsule or topical preparation, providing greater convenience for the patient.
Because patients vary in size, symptoms, and pain tolerance, commercially available medications may not always provide the appropriate strength for an individual patient. Through compounding, a prescriber and pharmacist can customize the strength to the exact amount the patient requires, and create a dosage form that best suits the patient’s needs. Pharmacy compounding may help improve a patient’s quality of life by providing fewer side effects and less overall medication.
