Personalized Medications for Pain Management from the Custom Medication Experts
How We Help
A patient brought in a prescription for an extended-release pain medication near the end of the day.
Our pharmacy did not have this medication in stock and the patient was already going on several days without her pain medication.
Our pharmacy went the extra mile and was able to reach the prescribing doctor after hours and worked with her doctor to get the medication changed to a different strength that we did have in stock.
She then didn’t have to miss another day, and was able to restart her treatment regimen that evening.
Dealing with Pain can be….. Well, a REAL PAIN
Our pharmacists know that everyone deals with some form of pain from time to time. In fact, pain is the most common symptom people report when seeking medical attention.
Often, pain is acute and short-lived, such as a headache caused by stress, or a muscle strain caused by a work or sports injury. Simple remedies like aspirin or a heating pad may suffice. Other times, acute pain turns into chronic pain – the type of pain that returns when the treatment wears off.
Many people live with debilitating, continually painful conditions such as:
- Lower Back Pain
There are many pain relievers on the market to help with these conditions. However, due to their strength, dosage form, or other factors, they can lead to unwanted side effects like drowsiness, dizziness, or stomach irritation. Additionally, many people have difficulty swallowing pills or tablets, presenting further obstacles to pain treatment.
Don’t Settle, You have Options
Makers of mass-produced pain relievers often formulate their products based on an “average patient”: average body weight, average pain tolerance, and so on. Your symptoms, your body weight, your pain tolerance, and other factors are unique to you.
Why should you accept these limitations as part of your daily struggle with chronic pain? Why should you have to settle with constant discomfort? With customized medication from our compounding pharmacy, you may not have to!
Our pharmacy offers tailor-made medication options to help you deal with your pain management.
Get Past Your Pain and get Back to Living a Full Life
Working with your provider, our pharmacists may be able to provide alternate ways to deliver your pain medication, including:
- Topical Gels
- Nasal Sprays
You may be taking a variety of medications to address your pain issues. Often, we can compound your various medications into a single capsule or topical preparation for your convenience.
With topical compounded medications, we see many patients receive convenient, targeted relief, in precise dosages, and with potentially fewer side effects. Contact one of our highly trained pharmacists to learn how you can begin improving your quality of life with custom pain management medications.
