Topical medications, used in combination with or without other medications or therapies, are a great option for many patients.
Quite a few patients experience stomach irritation or other unpleasant side effects from medications, difficulty swallowing pills, and other complications. A topical cream or patch can be applied directly to the site of the pain to provide relief right where it is needed. As these topical applications do not go through the digestive track, many of the risks and side effects of oral medications are minimized.
Another benefit is that multiple medications can be combined into a single dose of a specially prepared compound.
Our office is able to offer topical pain patches and custom topical medications for pain relief through our on-site pharmacy for maximum patient convenience.
