Pain is the most common symptom for which people seek medical help. Pain can be caused by a stress-induced headache, muscles strained from playing sports, or an injury sustained at work or in an automobile accident.
Acute pain easily can evolve into chronic pain, which can become difficult to treat. Many commonly prescribed, commercially available pain relief medications help the symptoms associated with chronic conditions such as arthritis, fibromyalgia, migraine headaches, and other nerve and muscle pain, but they can also result in unwanted side effects such as drowsiness, dizziness or stomach irritation. Many patients with chronic pain may begin to accept it as part of daily life. These patients may find better solutions for pain relief through pharmacy compounding.
Pharmacy compounding offers patients customized options for pain medication. Every individual is unique, and the types of pain experienced can be equally diverse. By working with a compounding pharmacist at Barney’s Pharmacy, your healthcare provider can prescribe treatments tailored specifically for your pain management needs.
