Pain creams administer high concentrations of pain medication directly to the site of pain for targeted relief. Experienced pharmacists work with physicians to create a custom formulation to meet a patient’s unique needs. These formulations offer the benefits of precise dosing, personalized treatment, and the combined effect of multiple ingredients working together for optimal pain relief.


Compounded pain formulations are applied topically; therefore they do not circulate through the entire body. It’s powerful pain medication where it is needed, less where it isn’t. Pain creams are less likely to interact with other medications and cause fewer side effects than traditional anti-inflammatories. The risk of dependence and addiction is virtually eliminated.


Custom pain creams are formulated using an anhydrous silicone base designed and proven to effectively deliver pain medication. This type of transdermal base has been tested and shown to deliver up to four drugs simultaneously, and to deliver these medications more effectively and efficiently than other topical bases.


This topical cream is formulated for neuropathic conditions and assists in minimizing pain through its direct deliver to pain receptors.


Created to relieve pain associated with muscle spasms and increase mobility in affected muscles.


This formula is compounded to help effectively treat muscle strain, repetitive stress, and persistent soreness.


Developed to provide long lasting relief of Migraine pain.
