Medicus RX offers compound creams for Physicians seeking customized pain management solutions in a clinical setting. The utilization of topical and transdermal compound creams formulated in order to provide highly localized concentrations of multiple pain relieving compounds is fast becoming a popular treatment for patients experiencing chronic and acute pain.
Managing chronic and acute pain effectively presents a critical and challenging aspect of effective patient care in modern medicine. Even in cases where the underlying pathology has been stabilized, treating chronic and acute pain often presents a serious quality of life issue for patients. Traditional pain management techniques include oral NSAIDs and often opiate based oral medications that have side effects that may be detrimental to the long term health and comfort of the patient.
Custom compounding of topical creams provides physicians with an additional personalized treatment tool, allowing for individualized treatment protocols that meet the specific health needs of each patient.

Topical Compound Creams: An Alternative to Oral Analgesics
Topical compound creams provide a valuable treatment alternative to traditional oral analgesics for pain management treatments. Traditional medical management therapies for acute and chronic pain typically involve the prescription of three classes of pharmaceuticals: (NSAIDs) nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, opiate based medications and adjuvants. Unfortunately both NSAIDs and opioid based drugs are known to cause a variety of adverse reactions in a number of patients when administered orally.
Orally administered NSAIDs are responsible for nearly 25% of all reported adverse drug reactions. Furthermore, sustained systemic exposure to NSAIDS is associated with adverse effects in the liver, gastrointestinal (GI) tract, kidney, and even the cardiovascular system.
Opioid based oral analgesics produce simaler GI tract adverse effects in many patients while also carrying a risk of addiction and other adverse effects such as drowsiness or lowered respiration rate. Custom ompound creams offer physicians an attractive clinical alternative that delivers concentrated analgesics directly to the effected area in a manner that minimizes systemic absorption and the adverse effects often associated with oral analgesics.
