Benefits of Compounded Neuropathic Pain Meds
Existing commercially-available treatments may not be an option for some patients due to lack of relief and frequent adverse effects. Patients often experience side effects from oral painkillers such as drowsiness, weight gain, anxiety, insomnia, constipation, and fatigue. These adverse effects may decrease one’s well-being, and justify topical cream therapy.
Topically administered medications can provide excellent therapeutic options in the tissue under the area of application because they are applied directly to the target site. Combination preparations may have an advantage over single-active-ingredient medications. Lower systemic drug levels potentially lower the risk for systemic toxicity.
In order to maximize the clinical effectiveness of topical pain compounds, healthcare providers often use a combination of active ingredients mixed into one preparation. Active ingredients work synergistically in relieving pain.
We have had much success treating neuropathy with NeuroProfen.
It consists of Ketoprofen, Gabapentin, Lidocaine and Amitriptyline Camphor and Menthol all of which act synergistically to alleviate pain and burning or pins and needles sensation.
