Pain Management Fusion Pharmacy


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 for physical pain management.


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 a personalized treatment plan.


Because of Fusion Specialty Pharmacy’s ability to create different methods of delivery, we can help reduce stomach irritation or other unpleasant side effects. Instead of a capsule or tablet, pain medications can often be compounded as::

A topical gel, cream or spray form that can be applied directly to the site of the pain and absorbed through the skin.

A custom-flavored troche that dissolves under the tongue, a nasal spray, or a suppository.

Such dosage forms may bypass the gastrointestinal tract, providing optimal results with less GI irritation, and help patients who have difficulty swallowing pills, removing yet another source of aggravation.


Because patients vary in size, symptoms, and pain tolerance, Fusion Specialty Pharmacy can customize a dosage form that best suits the patient’s needs, which is a service that most patients cannot attain with over-the-counter medications. Fusion Specialty Pharmacy may also help improve a patient’s quality of life by providing relief with potentially fewer treatment plan.

Is your pain cream better than over-the-counter options for my arthritis?
Over-the-counter creams are a great non-prescription alternative. We carry many options for our patients to choose from.
