According to the Institute of Medicine of The National Academies, there are 100 million Americans suffering with chronic pain. That’s over 3 times the amount of people suffering from diabetes in the US! Everywhere we look, we hear about the epidemic of prescription-drug abuse in this country. Why not find another way?
Compounding can be instrumental in relieving pain caused from many different conditions without the systemic side effects of traditional oral pain relievers. For example, we can compound a cream that can be applied directly to the painful area rather than prescribing an oral medication that is distributed systemically, takes more of a toll on the liver, and can potentially be more habit-forming.
Patients suffering from neuropathic pain including fibromyalgia, pain from shingles, migraines, and even just simple inflammatory pain from injury can benefit from a compounded medication for pain. Ask one of our knowledgeable pharmacists how you can find relief from your pain through compounding!
