Custom Compounded Topical Medications for Pain Management from Professional Arts Pharmacy

Topical Medications for Pain

Topical pain medications are ideal for patients who are not candidates for oral medications or simply prefer to use a topical medication alone or in conjunction with oral medications. Topical administration of medications for pain management has become increasingly more common.  

These topical medications are frequently prescribed for patients with a variety of painful conditions that can be addressed from a topical standpoint rather than through oral delivery. Instead of a capsule or tablet, customized pain medications often can be compounded together in dosage forms such as a topical cream that can be applied directly to the site of the pain and absorbed through the skin. 

Many patients have different types of pain and may benefit from a combination of different ingredients to address issues such as inflammation, muscle tightness and neuropathy. Professional Arts Pharmacy offers customized Topical Pain Management therapies with medication types such as non-steroidal anti-inflammatories (NSAIDS), local anesthetics, nerve depressants, muscle relaxants, and other pain reducing agents.

Some reasons a physician may opt for a topical pain medication may include a desire to decrease drug interactions for patients taking multiple oral therapies or to decrease typical side effects associated with oral pain medications.

Professional Arts Pharmacy offers affordable options for all patients regardless of the payer. We have various topical pain compounds covered by Medicare Part D as well as other major prescription insurance plans.
