Struggling through chronic pain problems like arthritis, fibromyalgia, migraine headaches and nerve and muscle pain does not have to be a daily activity.
Many commonly prescribed pain relief medications help the symptoms associated with chronic conditions such as arthritis, but they can also result in stomach irritation and other unwanted side effects. Compounding can provide alternate methods of delivery by combining the ingredients of traditional oral pain medications in a topical gel, cream or spray form that can be applied directly to the source of pain.
Because patients vary in size, symptoms and pain tolerance, commercially available medications often do not provide appropriate dosage strengths. Through compounding, a physician and pharmacist can customize a medication to the exact amount needed by the patient.
Pain can be debilitating, whether itís acute muscle or nerve pain resulting from an accident, or a chronic condition such as arthritis or fibromyalgia. Pharmacy compounding is effective in providing relief with potentially fewer side effects and less overall medication.
