Pain relief through the skin

Why do topical pain medications work?

Pain does not always have to be addressed by pills and injections.  Pain medications make some people feel tired, sleepy, or as if they are on another planet.  Some people taking oral pain medications find it difficult to function at their optimum.  Some people fear addiction to pain killers.  There are other pain treatment options available that are less invasive to the body, yet provide an effective solution to the pain you may be experiencing.

One common side effect for many using non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID’s, such as Aleve® [Naproxen,] Advil® [Ibuprofen,] Mobic® [Meloxicam,] & Celebrex, etc. ) is stomach problems.  Our pharmacists can provide topical methods to benefit patients who are unable to take medication in the more common forms.  It offers an easy alternative to taking multiple pills and patients love it.  Use of a topical cream can often mean the difference between treatment success or failure.  Because they allow medications to successfully penetrate the skin, these topical creams show the potential to sidestep many common side effects of drugs, such as upset stomach, and minimize the effects on other organs.  Read about one patient who experienced success with one of our pain cream formulas:
