Pain Management

Compounded Pain Medications For Effective Pain Management

At Specialist Pharmacy, in addition to commercially manufactured medications we can create compounded analgesics customised to your specifications, in order to help you develop an effective pain management treatment plan with your patient.

Despite advances in research and development, there are many patients taking commercially manufactured medications for pain management who experience negative side effects like gastrointestinal ulcers. Chronic pain affects up to 30% of those aged between 18 and 39 years old worldwide, which means that a large percentage of the population are likely taking medication that does not address their unique requirements and are suffering unnecessary side effects as a result.

Compounded formulas offer tailored, effective pain management, providing the opportunity to reduce adverse side effects, increase efficacy and improve patient compliance.

Compounded Medication For Better Results

Due to the bespoke nature of compounded preparations, the challenges associated with commercially manufactured medications are easily overcome. By targeting pain at the source, compounded topical creams and gels can result in a more positive experience. Benefits include:

  • Fewer adverse reactions
  • Improved patient compliance
  • Better therapeutic outcomes for the patient
  • Reduction in opioid use

Local Application For Localised Pain

At Specialist Pharmacy, our compounders can produce topical cream and gel applications for treating localised pain. 

These can be formulated to deliver a concentrated analgesic at the application site. You can prescribe low-dose and/or multi-drug formulations to reach multiple pain pathways, optimising targeting and pain relief for your patients.

Fewer Side Effects

One of the advantages of local application is the reduction of side effects that may occur with oral pain management medication. Transdermal creams and gels are not absorbed into the gastrointestinal tract, which means that your patient is less likely to experience consequences such as stomach ulcers or dizziness. If side effects do occur, we can produce low dose formulations that still effectively reach the pain receptors to achieve a positive outcome.
