Traditional medications may have unwanted side effects such as drowsiness, drug-to-drug interactions, and many more. Managing pain is very important because it affects a patient’s productivity and prevents enjoyment. Chronic pain can be difficult to manage, as it is a product of numerous causes and underlying factors. It usually requires a higher level of medical expertise and tailor-made medications to manage.
Topical compounded medications can help to elevate the pain. Compounded pain creams are applied topically and therefore bypass certain pathways to avoid and/or lower the side effects and drug interactions.
We can compound many topical preparations, such as single ingredient or multiple ingredients, used in the treatment of pain. Some of the examples are Ketoprofen, Diclofenac, Lidocaine, Baclofen, Gabapentin, Cyclobenzaprine, and more. These ingredients based on individual needs can help to alleviate topical pain.
Muscle pain, General topical pain, tendinitis, and nerve pain can be treated with topical pain preparation with better results than oral medications.
