Premier Pharmacy has received numerous requests from prescribers for topical pain creams including but not limited to; non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), local anesthetics, muscle relaxants, nerve agents, and antivirals.
Patients who might benefit from the topical delivery of such medications could include patients who:
- Are using NSAIDs, nerve depressants, or other pain medications orally, and have not achieved the desired clinical outcome for pain relief,
- Prescriber desires to avoid orally administered pain medications, or
- Need to avoid opiate-agonist usage if at all possible.
Topical Pain Management
At Premier, we understand that chronic and acute pain can be detrimental to your everyday living and that is why our experienced compounding pharmacists go the extra mile to ensure their patients receive the best in pharmaceutical care. We work to customize medications to meet the requirements and standards of each individual patient.
Pain management is essential because even when the underlying disease process is tolerable, uncontrolled pain prevents patients from taking part in their normal routines. Since chronic pain can have innumerable causes, it can be extremely difficult to manage requiring a multidisciplinary approach and customized treatment protocols involved in each situation. Premier offers you convenience, targeted relief, precise dosages and personalized treatment.
How is this different from Over-The-Counter
There are many mass-produced pain relievers on the market however, due to their dosage strength, format, or other factors they can lead to many unwanted side effects. Additionally, some people have a problem swallowing pills or tablets, presenting further obstacles to their pain treatment plan.
Makers of manufactured pain relievers often formulate their products based on a “one size fits all” attitude assuming each patient has an average body weight, average pain tolerances, and even average symptoms. Premier always sees you as an individual and we are equipped to take your unique needs into consideration when formulating your medication.
