What is Pain?
The International Association for the Study of Pain defines pain as the sensory and emotional experience associated with actual or potential tissue damage. Thus, pain includes not only the perception of an uncomfortable stimulus but also the response to that perception.

Oral Pain Killers are absorbed systemically, which often cause the following side effects:
- Stomach Discomfort
- Dry Mouth
- Addiction in some cases
Although oral painkillers may sometimes be necessary, its best to take the least possible amount needed. This would lower the risk of side effects and dependence on drugs.
A person living with pain might not need to take oral medications that will affect the whole body systemically when a topical compound could treat pain by offering high local concentrations at the site of application or trigger point application. Studies have shown when topical compounded pain relievers are applied transdermally, they are not absorbed through the gastrointestinal tract and do not undergo first-pass hepatic metabolism. First-pass hepatic metabolism often limits the effect of oral painkillers.
Our Custom made transdermal painkillers result in only 10-15% systemic absorption when applied topically.
At The Compounding Centre, our goal is to control your pain with a topical compounded pain medication that is customized to meet your unique needs. We strive to be your problem-solving drug therapy specialists and are committed to providing high-quality compounded medications.
