Types of Pain Control Medication

compound pain medicationChronic pain can easily result from acute pain, and this type of pain can be challenging to treat. 

Frequently prescribed commercially available pain relief drugs help the symptoms related to chronic disorders such as fibromyalgia, arthritis, migraine headaches, and other muscle and nerve pain, but they can also lead to undesirable side effects such as stomach irritation, drowsiness, or dizziness. 

Many patients who take these drugs come to accept these side effects are an inevitable part of life, but they can find a better medication option through pharmacy compounding. 

It is not necessary for patients to struggle through chronic pain or the side effects of pain medication on a daily basis. American Integrative Pharmacy (AIP) offers personalized pain medication solutions for patients. Compounding refers to the art and science of developing customized drugs for patients. It offers terrific benefits to people deal with pain management on a daily basis.  

Each person is different, and the kinds of pain felt can be equally distinct. The healthcare provider can work with a compounding pharmacist to create treatment plans that are tailored specifically to an individual patient’s needs. 

American Integrative Pharmacy (AIP) is an advanced integrative pharmacy offerings safe and innovative compounding solutions to patients in Los Angeles, Long Beach, Torrance, South Bay, Orange County, and various Southern California locations.

Sports Medicine

AIP compounding pharmacy offers significant benefits for every type of athlete, whether they are an exercise enthusiast who needs to soothe strains or ache, a high school player recovering from a sports-related injury, or a weekend warrior attempting to ease pain during the workweek.

A compounding pharmacist can create a combination of various medications into a single dosage form to address nerve pain, customize antifungal drugs, or develop special formulations to heal calluses or blisters. 

Compounded sun block lotions, creams, and lip balms may offer protection to athletes engaging in outdoor sports. 


Custom Pain Cream, Gel or Oral Solutions

Pain medication can cause side effects such as stomach irritation or other unwanted side effects. Some may find it challenging to take the drugs in their commercially available form. 

Custom compounding at AIP can offer alternate methods of delivery to make the process more convenient. Rather than a tablet or capsule, pain drugs can usually be compounded as dosage forms such as:

  • A topical cream, gel, or spray form that can be used directly in the area of the pain and absorbed through the skin.
  • A custom-flavored troche that dissolves beneath the tongue, a suppository, or a nasal spray


Personalized Dosages, Formulations, and Drug Combinations 

When a medical care practitioner prescribes a compounded transdermal pain medication, the APIs and their percentages can be customized to the patient’s exact needs.

Various APIs used transdermally to address various types of pain, such as anticonvulsants, anesthetics, NSAIDs, muscle relaxants and hypotensive agents, can be combined at suitable dosages in a single formulation. 

This versatility allows for a single prescription to address multiple receptors involved with the transmission of pain signals. After a combination of pain APIs is established, a suitable transdermal base is chosen.

The compounding pharmacy medications are incorporated into the base at particular concentrations. The final compounded preparations are dispenses similar to any other prescription, with explicit dosing guidelines for the patient. 

AIP, led by Dr. Neema Yazdanpanah, provides integrative pharmacy solutions, including online prescription refills, to patients in Long Beach, Torrance, Los Angeles, South Bay, Orange County, Southern California areas, and nationwide.
