At Lima’s Professional Pharmacy, Inc. we utilize various compounding techniques to manage and improve our patient’s pain. We can provide pain medication in the form of capsules, topical or transdermal creams and gels, lollipops, lozenges, chewable gummies, analgesic nasal sprays, and suppositories.
Our goal is to make the form that is the most compatible with the drug and the most convenient for the patient. When using a transdermal gel for pain relief, we use special ingredients to increase the amount of medication that the skin can absorb to maximize the effectiveness of the drug therapy.
Transdermal Therapy for Chronic Pain Management
We understand that chronic pain can have a major impact on a person’s quality of life. Based on recent studies, we promote the use of transdermal therapy for managing chronic pain. Using transdermal therapy, we can customize a treatment regimen that can be applied directly to the site of the pain.
Besides the benefits of a customized medication regimen and applying the medication directly to the site of the pain, transdermal therapy also lessens side effects associated with chronic therapy. Delivering medication through the skin can lessen the exposure of the liver and kidneys to the drug, decreasing the amount of work those organs must do to metabolize the medication.
Transdermal therapy can be used to treat many medical conditions:
- Diabetic neuropathy
- Complex Regional Pain Syndrome
- Orofacial Neuropathic pain
- Sport injuries
- Nausea and vomiting
- Vascular diseases
- Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Syndrome (RSDS, RSD)
- Trauma to wrists, ankles, fingers and toes
The following are examples of medication that can be administered through transdermal therapy:
