Relief from pain can be achieved through Customised Formultations to your specific needs.

Pain is a natural, part of life. But when it becomes more than an occassional short term inconvenience and starts to impact in the enjoyment of life, then its good to know that you can have a customised personal solution that takes into account your situation and needs. Compounding offers the solution.

Commercially available pain relief medications can have their limitations
Pain is the most common reason that people seek medical help. What may start out as infrequent acute pain can easily evolve into chronic pain, which in some individuals may be difficult to treat for a large variety of reasons. To help with pain your physician may prescribe one, or a combination of commercially available pain relief medications. In some individuals though, these medications can result in unwanted side effects. Drowsiness, dizziness, stomach irritation are a few of the common ones.

Still, struggling through chronic pain or the side effects of commercially available pain medication are not the only options. A Personalised formulation from a Compounding Chemist is often the right solution.

Your Physician and Compounding Pharmacist will work together to formulate the prescription ideal for you.
Acknowledging that each person is unique, and the types of pain and intensity experienced can be just as unique, by working with a compounding pharmacist, your physician can prescribe treatments tailored specifically for your pain management needs.

Different methods of Dosage Delivery
At David Wilson Compounding Chemist we can provide alternative methods of dosage delivery which match your needs, preferences and situation. For example instead of your medication being limited to capsule or tablet, we can prepare a topical gel, cream or spray form that can be applied directly to the site of the pain and absorbed through the skin. For other situations, for instance paediatric or geriatric care,  a custom-flavored troche that dissolves under the tongue, a nasal spray, or a suppository may be a solution.

These other dosage forms can bypass the gut, providing optimal results with little or no gastro-intestinal irritation as well as help patients who have difficulty swallowing pills, removing yet another source of aggravation.

Combining more than one medication into one simple form
Some chronic pain sufferers are taking various medications to help relieve pain associated with an ongoing medical problem. Generally, multiple medications can be combined into a single dosage form, providing greater convenience for the patient or carer.

Strength Variations
Patients tolerence to pain is as individualised as their body size, shape and weight. So the commercially available medication approach of ‘one size fits all’ may not be approptiate. These medications sometimes may not provide the appropriate dosage strength for an individual patient. Compounding can address this. Your physician and compounding pharmacist can customize the dosage to the exact amount required through a particular dosage forms.

Please feel free to speak to one of our pharmacists about how we may be able to help you, loved one or friend. We can liase with the physician to achieve the most appropriate individual solution.
