University Chemists has access to a variety of ingredients that can be compounded into a cream that is tailored to the needs of the patient. Ingredients range from pain relievers to muscle relaxers to anti-inflammatory medications, that will be put into a cream that can be absorbed locally into the skin. Compounds are a great solution for patients who may have trouble swallowing oral medications, or are otherwise not ideal candidates for commercial pharmaceutical treatments or surgery. We choose the ingredients and formulations that we use for our pain creams very carefully for the collaborative effort that they have on the types and causes of pain that our patients may have. The benefits of compounded pain medications are also evident in that some patients are even able to lessen the doses that they take of oral pain medications, and some have been able to stop taking oral medications altogether since beginning use of an alternate treatment such as a compound that has been designed specifically for pain.
