Pain Compounds

Southland Pharmacy is PROUD to offer Compounds for Pain

We offer compounds that can help with Pain Management. These are a great non-narcotic option for our patient who are suffering with either acute or chronic pain.

Opioids or narcotics, are a common treatment option for pain. However, due to their dosage strength, dosage format or other factors, they can lead to unwanted side effects such as drowsiness, dizziness, stomach irritation, gastritis, ulcers, and most concerningly - addiction.

Our pain compounds are often topical and this will bypass the stomach, allowing for pain relief without all of the gastrointestinal side effects.

Common types of Compounded Pain Creams

  • NSAIDS (Non-steroidal Anti-inflammatory Drugs): Ketoprofen, Diclofenac, Ibuprofen, Piroxicam, Mefenamic Acid
  • Muscle Relaxants: Cyclobenzaprine, Baclofen, Guaifenasin
  • Anesthetics: Lidocaine, Tetracaine, Prilocaine

How do Compounded Pain Medications Work?

Most of the typically prescribed pain management treatments on the market are utilizing a single ingredient approach, typically an anti-inflammatory, in hopes that decreasing inflammation will decrease pain. Compounded pain management creams use a multi-ingredient approach, incorporating multiple different ingredients. Each of these ingredients address different reasons for pain and all working together will offer the possibility of a stronger therapeutic outcome for our patients who are in pain.
