Pain Management


pain Pain management generally benefits from a multidisciplinary approach that includes:

Pharmacologic Measures - analgesics such as NSAIDs, and pain modifiers such as tricyclic antidepressants, or anticonvulsants

Non-Pharmacologic Measures- such as interventional procedures, physical therapy, physical exercise, and application of ice and/or heat

Gemmels Compounding Pharmacists have the capabilities to customize preparations for painful conditions that improve therapeutic outcomes, reduce side effects, and save patients time and money.

Compounding medications for pain allows for...

  • ...unique delivery vehicles to be utilzed (i.e. topical cream, troche, iontophoresis solutions); which makes administering the medication easier, more pleasant, and potentially more effective
  • ...medicines to be concentrated based on individual need which maximizes therapeutic outcomes while reducing side effects
  • ...multiple medications, that have been shown to have modest effects individually, to be combined to form a more potent customized medication. This may speed the healing process and save patients valuable time and money, eliminating needlessly switching from one therapy to the next.
