Hope all had a great holiday! I have just found out that there are compounding pharmacies that make alot of differnet types of meds for pain management. I am sure there are alot of you that are like me that can no longer take NSAIDS due to stomach issues. While I was at my local CVS yesterday I was saying to my pharmacist that it would be nice if there was another option of using NSAIDS without them having to pass through the digestive system. He then told me about a compounding pharmacy in my area that can put alot of different meds into a gel or patch, which ends some of the stomach side affects that oral meds can cause.
I checked out their web-site (under their compounding pharmacy section /pain management),I found out how many different type of meds they make available using this option. I called them this AM and spoke with the pharmacist and he explained to me about all the different meds they can use (even for nerve pain)and how to have my Dr. write a script. I thought I would pass this info along in case there is somebody else like me that could use this alternative. If you would like to check out the web-site for this pharmacy below is their address. I hope this may help others and maybe you can find one in your area. Dava Anne http://www.fallonpharmacy.com
