Pain is the most common syptom for which individuals seek medical help. Acute pain can easily evolve into chronic pain and become difficult to treat. Commercially available medications often cause drowsiness, diziness, or stomach discomfort ... and those taking these medications learn to accept these conditions as a part of daily life. Struggling through chronic pain problems like arthritis, fibromyalgia, migraine headaches, and nerve or muscle pain does not have ot be a daily activity. Pharmacy compounding can truly help.

Alternate Delivery Methods & Dosages
Compounding can provide alternate methods of delivery by combining ingredients of traditional oral pain medications in a topical gel, cream or spray form that can be applied directly to the site of the pain. For migraine sufferers, pain medication may be administered through nasal sprays or flavored torches or lozenges. These dosage forms bypass the gastrointestinal tract, and may provide optimal results without the side effects.
Because patients vary in size, symptoms, and pain tolerance, commercially available medications often do not provide an appropriate dosage strength. Through compounding, we can custumize a medication to the exact amount needed.
