Topical pain relief: a customized alternative to oral meds.
If you suffer from chronic pain or inflammation, chances are you’ve tried oral medicines for relief.
These can be useful and effective. But they can also trigger serious side effects and lead to drug dependency.
Now you can get a topical pain medication made especially for you.
Today it’s possible to control your pain and inflammation right at its origin, using specially formulated topical medications. Instead of a “one-size-fits-all” solution like most oral drugs, these topical compounds are made especially for your particular pain, your drug sensitivities, and possible interactions with another drugs.
The science of topical pain medication has been evolving for decades, with many clinical studies demonstrating their effectiveness for most users. Today your doctor can take advantage of local pharmacists who specialize in creating, or “compounding,” these custom topical creams. This local network of pharmacists and consultants skilled in topical treatments is established, certified and administered by Fusion Medical, which helps ensure the highest standards of expertise, quality and customer service here and in similar networks nationwide.
Talk to your doctor about topical alternatives.
Topical medications are proven effective against a wide range of musculoskeletal and neuropathic pain and inflammation [link to list]. Relief from pain and inflammation will be often faster and more effective than with oral medications. Intervals between treatments may be longer. There are far fewer side effects – including much less risk of addiction, GI tract irritation or organ damage – than with oral drugs.
Ask your doctor if custom topical medication is a prescription that could work for you. Typically, your topical medication will be custom-formulated and delivered to your door free of charge within 2-3 days, with most prescriptions covered by national and local insurance providers. A knowledgeable pharmacist will call to counsel you on its application, confirm insurance coverage, and to make sure all your questions are answered.
