Pain Management

Pain management is required for uncontrolled pain that prevents patients from working productively and enjoying activities, their family and society. Chronic pain comes from a myraid of medical issues and is often much more difficult to manage than acute pain. Side effects associated with oral administration can often be avoided when medications are used topically. When oral NSAIDs are indicated for pain, physicians may sometimes have reservations. After all, the concern that narcotics will be abused is real. We can solve all of those problems and provide a more effective tool to manage pain. Our transdermal creams deliver medication right where it hurts. Using the same medications available in oral NSAIDs, our medications are custom blended for each patient, easy and convenient, covered by insurance and workers comp and the most effective way to deliver a high concentration of pain medication directly to the source of the pain.

We are the area’s only topical NSAID lab. Our lab equipment, including ointment milling machines, PH meters, homogenizers, wet and dry autoclaves and tube sealers, guarantee that patients receive the right medication at the correct dose.

Some of the pure medications available are: Ketoprofen, Gabapentin, Nifedipine, Amitriptyline, Orphenadrine and others, alone or in the combination specified. There are many publicly available studies that state topical NSAIDs are as effective as the oral equivalent, including those published in major medical journals.

We look forward to helping you make pain management less of a pain.

Pediatrics

Pediatric medication challenges can be frustrating for parents as well as physicians. Children may resist taking a medication, dislike the taste or texture, have difficulty swallowing, are fearful of injections and can be more difficult to medicate overall.

Lollipops are an ideal alternative for children. Most drugs can also be compounded into transdermal gels that can easily be applied to an appropriate site for absorption through the skin.

Veterinary

We offer solutions to problems by compounding specialized medications which meet the unique needs of each animal. Flavored medications are created in our lab in dosages that animals devour: tuna for cats, liver for dogs, banana or tutti frutti for exotics. We also ensure that each medication is compounded in the ideal size, strength and dosage form for your patient or pet. A tablet, for example, that is commercially available may be too large for a cat, whereas multiple tablets of the same may be needed for horses. We can create a preparation that is perfect for each animal including the best way for that animal to receive the medication; oral, transdermal, otic, etc.). We compound medical “treats,” liquid compounds, ear drops and dusting powders. And if the ideal preparation needs to contain several ingredients to treat a multitude of symptoms, we can help. Don’t forget, if it’s unavailable or back-ordered, we can make it for you.

In addition to customized medications, we offer a variety of unique dispensing devises to simplify administration and improve compliance.
