“Compounding is the Art and Science of Creating Personalized Medications for patients.” (PCCA—Professional Compounding Center of America).
Pain is the most common symptom for which individuals seek medical help. Pain is an unpleasant sensation that can negatively affect all aspects of a person’s life. Many people suffer from chronic pain which is defined as pain for ninety or more days. Chronic pain serves no biological protective purpose and can result in undue stress and suffering. Chronic pain can be challenging to treat.
Many commonly prescribed, commercially available pain relief medications help the symptoms associated with chronic conditions such as fibromyalgia, arthritis, migraine headaches, and other muscle or nerve pain (neuropathy), but they can also result in unwanted side effects such as drowsiness, dizziness, tiredness, constipation or stomach irritation and bleeding. Many patients taking these medications feel they have no other alternatives and must accept these undesirable side effects as part of their daily life. At Allen Family Drug we are currently working with doctors and patients to provide safer and equally effective options.
We also offer a wide variety of treatment options that provide great pain relief for many common conditions. These pain medications are available as transdermal gels, cream, or sprays and are designed to deliver the active ingredients directly to the target areas and work on different pain modulators all at once. The use of compounded products in pain management has resulted in good success in the following conditions:
- Shingles & Trigeminal neuralgia
- General pain/Muscle relaxant/Anti-inflammatory
- Neuropathy pain with or without Anti-Inflammatory
- Diabetic Neuropathy
- Migraine Headache
- Canker Sore
- Gout pain
- Orofacial Neuropathic pain
- Radiation dermatitis
- Hemmroid flare-up
