“Compounding is the Art and Science of Creating Personalized Medications for patients.” (PCCA—Professional Compounding Center of America).
Low dose naltrexone has been studied since the 1980’s. More recently we have been gaining a better understanding of how naltrexone can positively affect numerous conditions, including inflammation, autoimmune disorders, and dermatological disorders to name just a few. Because of its wide range of uses our pharmacists have spent numerous hours reading the latest research and attending seminars to become information experts on this subject. Allen Family Drug is able compound a number of different dosage forms including capsules, oral suspensions, and topical creams, to name a few.
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). However, they can also result in unwanted side effects such as drowsiness, dizziness, tiredness, constipation, stomach irritation, or 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 continuously work 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, creams, 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 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
- Hemorrhoid flare-up
