Customized pain remedies use the active ingredients of pain medications, but do so in alternative forms such as creams and gels that are applied directly to the pain. This helps greatly reduce stomach irritation and other unwanted side effects, while delivering more medication where it is actually needed.
Common types of pain:
- Back Pain
- Acute Sports Injuries
- Sunburn and Radiation Burn
- Orthopedic Pain
- Cancer Pain
Pain is the most common symptom for which individuals seek medical help. Everyone experiences some sort of pain in their lives. It can take the form of a stress-induced headache, a muscle group strained from over activity, or be the result of an accute injury from an accident. Unfortunatley, for many, pain can be chronic in nature and is something they live with on a daily basis.
Many commonly prescribed, commercially available pain relief medications help the symptoms associated with chronic conditions such as arthritis, fibromyalgia, migraine headaches, and other nerve and muscle pain, but they can also result in unwanted side effects such as drowsiness, dizziness or stomach irritation. Many patients taking these medications come to accept these conditions as part of daily life, but they may find a better solution through pharmacy compounding. Compounding can offer personalized pain relief. PCCA
Our focus is on relieving and preventing the suffering of patients. Along with physician services to attend to a patient’s medical needs, the skills and caring of a knowledgeable compounding pharmacist may be necessary to provide symptom control and pain relief. Pharmacists play a major role in these situations, as caring for the patient generally centers around providing comfort by using pharmaceuticals to relieve and manage symptoms.
