Compounded Pain Cream
COMPOUNDED PAIN CREAM is specifically designed to target and treat the site of pain with customizable formulations, while avoiding many of the complications common to other pain treatment methods. Pain Cream provides a flexible, convenient, and effective solution for a variety of pain-related conditions.
PAIN CREAMS ARE DESIGNED to administer high concentrations of pain medication directly onto the site of pain for targeted relief. Furthermore, our pharmacists will work with the doctor to create a custom formulation, designed to meet a patient’s unique needs. As a result, our formulations offer the combined benefits of precise dosing, personalized treatment, and the combined effect of multiple ingredients working together for optimal pain relief.
Fewer Risks & Side Effects
BECAUSE OUR PAIN FORMULATIONS are applied topically, they do not circulate throughout the entire body. This provides powerful pain medication where it is needed and less where it isn’t. As a result, Pain Creams are less likely to interact with other medications being taken and cause fewer side effects than other pain medications. Finally, since Pain Cream is not absorbed throughout the entire body, the risk of dependence and addiction is virtually eliminated.
ALL OF OUR PAIN CREAMS are formulated using an anhydrous silicone base designed and proven to effectively deliver pain medication. Furthermore, this type of transdermal base has been tested and proven to deliver up to four drugs simultaneously and to deliver medications more effectively and more quickly than other topical bases.
Active Ingredients in COMPOUNDED PAIN CREAM FORMULATIONS
Anesthetic. Treats pain by blocking electrical signals in the brain and spine.
Tricyclic antidepressant. Inhibits serotonin reuptake, suppressing pain signals in the central nervous system.
Muscle relaxant / antispasmodic. Helps reduce pain by relaxing muscles. Since topical use causes much less systemic absorption, the typical side effects (drowsiness, increased urination, mental confusion, constipation and fatigue) are usually not seen.
Local anesthetic. Can be used to treat neuropathic pain by blocking nerve signals.
Antihypertensive. Used to treat neuropathic pain.
Muscle relaxant. Helps control muscle spasms and tightness. A common side effect of this medication when taken orally is drowsiness, but this risk is reduced with transdermal medication.
Antiviral. Treats viral infections, like shingles, by inhibiting the growth and proliferation of virus cells.
Anti-inflammatory (NSAID). Helps reduce inflammation and pain. Transdermal application reduces the risk of side effects, such as GI upset, and lowers the possibility of stomach ulceration. The FDA requests that physicians measure liver function periodically in patients receiving long-term therapy with diclofenac.
Anti-inflammatory (NSAID). Reduces pain, inflammation, and fever. Commonly used to treat arthritis pain.
Anticonvulsant. Works by three mechanisms to treat neuropathic pain (pain typically caused by damaged or misfiring nerve fibers). Best combined with ketamine for maximum synergistic effect.
Tricyclic antidepressant. Treats neuropathic pain by acting on serotonin and norepinephrine in the nervous system.
Anti-inflammatory (NSAID). Helps reduce hormones which cause inflammation and pain. There is extensive research on transdermal delivery of ketoprofen.
Anti-inflammatory (NSAID). Reduces pain, inflammation, and fever. Used short-term to treat moderate to severe pain of the skin, muscles, and soft tissues.
Topical Anesthetic. Helps reduce pain. The most common transdermal side effects are tingling and numbness at the site of application.
Muscle relaxant. Commonly used to treat muscle spasms and aches.
Topical anesthetic. Provides local pain relief by deadening nerves at site of application.
