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 can work with your doctor to create a custom formulation, designed to meet your unique needs. As a result, you get 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 means you have powerful pain medication where you need it and less where you don’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 the anhydrous silicone base, PCCA Lipoderm®. Lipoderm® is the only transdermal base designed and proven to effectively deliver pain medication. Furthermore, Lipoderm® has been tested and proven to deliver up to 4 drugs simultaneously and to deliver medications more effectively and more quickly than other topical bases.
Active Ingredients in COMPOUNDED PAIN CREAM
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.
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.
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.
Anticonvulsant. Works by 3 mechanisms to treat neuropathic pain (pain typically caused by damaged or misfiring nerve fibers). Best combined with ketamine for maximum synergistic effect.
Analgesic (an agent used to relieve pain without loss of sensation). Helps reduce pain by interfering with the transmission of pain signals to the brain. Extensive research has been performed on the topical use of ketamine.
Anti-inflammatory (NSAID). Helps reduce hormones which cause inflammation and pain. There is extensive research on transdermal delivery of ketoprofen.
Topical Anesthetic. Helps reduce pain. The most common transdermal side effects are tingling and numbness at the site of application.
A mild opioid-like pain reliever.
