The Compounding Solution for Pain Management

The Compounding Solution for Pain Management

Whether it’s muscle pain, headaches, or menstrual cramping, almost everyone has experienced some sort of pain in their lives. Chronic pain like that from arthritis, fibromyalgia, and migraines, however, can be an ongoing, debilitating experience, preventing you from working effectively, enjoying recreation, or even taking pleasure in everyday life.

Thanks to pharmacy compounding—a customized option for pain management—you don’t have to let chronic pain keep you from enjoying life.

Providing the Answer for Chronic Pain Relief

Many prescribed or over-the-counter pain relief medications provide some relief, but come with a host of side effects, including drowsiness, dizziness, and stomach irritation. What’s more, some medications can create dependency and even damage the liver if used for long periods of time. Unfortunately, many patients have come to tolerate this “reality”, believing there are no other options when it comes to pain management.

Fortunately for many chronic pain sufferers, there is a better, more efficient solution. Specially compounded medications deliver personalized pain relief, providing valuable benefits in the treatment of:

  • Fibromyalgia
  • Shingles and Post-Herpetic Neuralgia
  • Diabetic Neuropathy
  • Migraines
  • Muscle Pain

Meeting Your Unique Needs

Everybody experiences pain in a different way. A compounding pharmacist can compound a medicine that will assist you and your healthcare provider to create an effective pain management program tailored specifically to your needs.

Pharmacy compounding offers alternate methods of delivery to make the process simpler. Pain medications can often be compounded into dosage forms including:

  • Topical gel/cream
  • Sprays
  • Capsules
  • Suppositories
  • Tablet triturates
  • Injectables
  • Flavoured/unflavoured troches
  • Lozenges
