When you’ve got chronic pain and need to manage your pain, you might not know it, but going to a compounding pharmacy to fill your prescription could give you better results.
Imagine that every day you suffered from some form of pain—maybe it’s your back, maybe it’s your knees. Whatever kind of pain you’re thinking about, can you imagine getting anything done? Can you imagine being able to enjoy life to its fullest?
Well, if you do suffer from any form of chronic pain, you don’t need to imagine the kind of relief you would feel if you could find a pain management plan that works for you. Wouldn’t you do anything to get that kind of relief?
Why Commercially Available Pain Medications Might Not Work
Chronic pain can be the result of various problems such as back injury, fibromyalgia, cancer, diabetic neuropathy, arthritis, Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, vulvodynia, and amputation (phantom limb pain). Since the source of chronic pain is often quite complex, it can be very difficult to treat and may not respond to commercially available medications.
Lots of people only know about these commercially available medications. They don’t think they have an alternative. Consequently, many people continue to suffer from unrelieved pain and/or endure side effects from high doses of drugs taken to relieve that pain.
How Our Compounding Pharmacy Can Help
Our ability to compound customized medications at Marco Drugs & Compounding opens up a whole new realm of possible solutions for our patients’ medication problems.
Do you remember the first time you discovered that instead of just using the standard 8 colors of crayons, you could get 64 crayons in a whole rainbow of colors? Compounding is kind of like that. Instead of being restricted to using commercially manufactured medications that are only available in a limited number of strengths and dosage forms, our compounding pharmacists can offer a vast array of options prepared specifically to meet your needs.
Pain management is best achieved with a team approach and often requires a combination of drugs that work in different ways to relieve pain. Transdermal gels or creams are often beneficial when oral medications don’t work. Transdermal medications often have fewer side effects than when the same drug is taken by some other route (i.e. orally, by injection, rectally, etc.). Suppositories may also be helpful for patients with pain who also have nausea and/or vomiting, or are unable to take food or medicine by mouth.
In short, we can help you find the pain management solution that works for your situation and needs.
