Pain is your body’s alerting system, warning you against further injury. It is a sophisticated survival mechanism that can also be debilitating. Be it sharp or dull, intermittent or constant, acute or chronic, pain affects overall health and wellbeing. Treating pain in a conservative and comprehensive fashion is key to regaining a more functional state. Pain management requires a delicate balance targeted towards treating the symptoms of pain while minimizing potential consequences of therapy such as rebound pain and addiction. Compounded pain medicines have become a mainstay in treating complex pain. Individualized pain therapy, delivered in the right vehicle and dosage form, can be the difference between minor relief and getting back to doing what you love.
Rite Choice Pharmacy has experience in compounding medications for various pain types. Below is a brief list of pain disorders we routinely compound preparations for.
Chronic Pain Syndromes
Pain management is essential because even when the underlying disease process is stable, uncontrolled pain prevents patients from working productively, enjoying recreation, or taking pleasure in their usual roles in the family and society. Chronic pain may have a myriad of causes and perpetuating factors, and therefore can be much more difficult to manage than acute pain, requiring a multidisciplinary approach and customized treatment protocols to meet the specific needs of each patient.
We work together with patient and practitioner to solve problems by customizing medications that meet the specific needs of each individual. Please contact our compounding pharmacist to discuss the dosage form, strength, and medication or combination that is most appropriate for your patient.
