Pain, whether due to illness or injury, is just plain unwelcome. Although there are plenty of pain remedies, chronic pain, pain that persists over a long period of time, can be particularly difficult to treat.Long-term use of pain medication can cause side effects such as drowsiness, dizziness or stomach irritation.
You don’t have to accept these side effects as part of daily life.
We can work with your healthcare provider to seek a customized solutionto your pain management issues.
PAIN MANAGEMENT SOLUTIONS
Stomach irritation: Instead of a capsule or tablet, we can prepare your pain medications in the form of a topical gel, cream or spray that can be applied directly to the site of the pain and absorbed through the skin. Or we could customize a flavored troche that dissolves under your tongue, a nasal spray, or a suppository.
Combining Medications: Multiple medications can be combined into a single dose of a specially prepared compound that combines two or more medications into a single capsule or topical preparation, providing greater convenience with fewer medications to take.
Medication Strength: We vary in size, symptoms, and pain tolerance.Commercially available medications will not always provide the appropriate dosage strength for individual needs.
MEDICATION DOSAGE METHODS
We can customize medications into more appropriate dosage methods to suit specific needs, including:
- Sublingual drops
- Oral sprays
- Nasal Sprays
- Rectal solutions
These are just some of the potential customization solutions. We will work with you and your healthcare provider to customize your pain management medication. Come into the pharmacy, contact us, or have your doctor call us to discuss your medication customization needs.
