Pain Management & Sports Medicine

Pain ManagementCustom Scripts Pharmacy understands that everyone deals with some form of pain from time to time. In fact, pain is the most common symptom people report when seeking medical attention.

Pain can be acute and short-lived, such as a headache, or muscle strain caused by a work or sports injury. Sometimes remedies like analgesics or a heating pad may suffice. Other times, acute pain evolves into chronic pain, pain that returns when the treatment wears off. There are many people who live with debilitating, continually painful conditions like arthritis, migraines, diabetic neuropathy and fibromyalgia.

Compounded medications are used to help relieve pain. Compounded medications prescribed by your physician may be one of several methods used to treat pain.

Compounded pain medications may alleviate:

  • Unwanted side effects
  • Non-compliance
  • Multiple medications required for pain relief

With a healthcare provider’s prescription, Custom Scripts Pharmacy may be able to provide alternate ways to deliver your pain medication, including:

  • Topical gels
  • Nasal sprays
