Don’t let chronic pain keep you from enjoying life.

Pharmacy compounding offers patients customized options for pain medication. Compounding is the art and science of preparing individualized prescription medications for patients.

Everyone experiences some sort of pain in their lives. It can take the form of a stress-induced headache, a muscle group strained from sports activities, or be the result of an injury at work or an automobile accident. For some, pain can be chronic in nature and something they live with on a daily basis.

Pain is the most common symptom for which individuals seek medical help. Acute pain easily can evolve into chronic pain, which can become difficult to treat.

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 offers personalized pain relief. Customized topical creams and gels (e.g. NSAIDs for joint pain) can provide high levels of relief right at the site of the application. Side effects associated with oral medications can be avoided.
