What Are Compound Medications?
The Traditional Practice Of Compounding
“Compounding” is the traditional practice of customizing medications according to a physician’s direction to more completely and specifically address a patient’s treatment needs.
Typical therapies for treating an injury or chronic pain might include medications such as pain relievers or anti-inflammatory tablets taken orally - through the science and practice of Compounding, we can provide additional options in a variety of forms to compliment or even replace these therapies.
Patient Benefits Through Treatment With Compounded Medications
For instance, as an alternative to oral medications to treat an injury or chronic pain, through customization, we can create a transdermal cream, gel or spray with one or more medications appropriate for treatment to be applied topically and directly at the sight of pain.
Alternative To Oral Tablets = Transdermals Applied Topically To Site Of Pain
By doing this, conceptually, the body does not need to process the medication which can prevent stress or even internal damage. Long term, high dosage use of oral anti-inflammatories has been linked to gastrointestinal problems which creates a new problem that could require additional medications to address - treatment using a transdermal product could be an effective alternative.
By providing pain relief through use of a transdermal product, a patient’s dependency on oral medications could be reduced or possibly even eliminated.
Transdermals Can Absorb…
Through compounding technology, a transdermal product applied locally can realize significant absorption allowing the medications to be processed by the body and most important, reach the sight of pain.
This safe and effective absorption is a function of the technology within the various “Bases” that we mix with our medications providing the active ingredients a biological conduit through which to penetrate the layers of tissue.
Combination Capsules That Treat A Variety Of Conditions
In addition, we specialize in unique capsule combinations.
We can mix two or more medications to treat a condition in a compounding way through taking one, easy to swallow capsule that is designed to quickly absorb and process in the body, and provide relief potentially faster than a tablet or multiple tablets.
Treating Chronic Pain, Insomnia, Constipation And More
Our most popular capsule combinations treat a multitude of conditions including, but not limited to:
- Migraine Headaches
- Chronic Pain
- Aid in Joint and Cartilage Repair
- And, more…
