Physical Pain Management
Individuals experience pain in a variety of places and to varying degrees. By combining various agents which utilize different mechanisms to alter the sensation of pain, physicians have found that smaller concentrations of each medication can be used.
Topical and transdermal creams and gels can be formulated to provide high local concentrations at the site of application. Side effects associated with oral administration can often be avoided when medications are used topically. Studies suggest that there are no great restrictions on the type of drug that can be incorporated into a properly compounded transdermal gel. When medications are administered transdermally, they are not absorbed through the gastrointestinal system and do not undergo first-pass hepatic metabolism.
If you are a practitioner, please contact our compounding pharmacist to discuss the dosage form, strength, and medication or combination that is most appropriate for your patient. If you personally suffer from acute or chronic pain, our highly trained pharmacists will work closely with your doctor to identify and implement a personalized treatment plan.
