BioMed - Benefits of Topicals

How Can Topical Compounded Medications Benefit My Patients?

Working closely with the physician and the patient, our compounding pharmacists can prepare custom dosage strengths, potency and delivery systems for the utmost in therapy and pain management. We will work together to address specific, individual needs and customizing medications for optimal patient satisfaction.

Our expert pharmacists use a number of medications within various classes of drugs to create a personalized topical pain relief treatment.

  • Local anesthetics (ex. Lidocaine, Prilocaine)
  • Muscle relaxants (ex. Cyclobenzaprine)
  • Tricyclic antidepressants (ex. Amitriptyline)
  • Calcium channel blockers (ex. Nifedipine)
  • Other ingredients that have had proven outcomes relieving pain
