We know that everyone suffers from varying types and degrees of pain at various times in their lives. When seeking care from a medical professional, pain is the number one symptom reported by patients. Pain can result in physical limitation, loss of work productivity, loss of sleep, depression, and almost always decreased in quality of life. With such far reaching consequences of pain we as healthcare professionals at Meta Pharmacy Services understand the importance of appropriate attention and management. We are offering you an alternative to the status quo in pain management today.
We know pain can be acute or chronic, sharp or dull, sudden or gradual, joint or nerve just to name a few different types of pain patients suffer from. This is important because the description of your pain is what will decide the most effective way to treat that pain. In today’s day and age by just looking at the treatment of pain you would believe that pain can only be treated a couple different ways. This is far from the truth and exactly why patients and prescribers do not have to accept the blanket approaches of increasing doses of narcotic medications or taking their chances with risky and often ineffective surgeries.
At Meta Pharmacy Services we are offering you an alternative to the current approach in pain management today. An alternative to the many side effects which come with taking numerous pain pills on a daily basis. With so many types of pain the most effective treatment requires various classes of medications not available in oral combination dosage forms. More and more often patients and healthcare providers are turning to and realizing the benefits of alternative dosage forms for pain management. Most frequently we utilize topical formulations to take advantage of combination drug therapy and to minimize side effects associated with medications traveling through the gastrointestinal tract.
We have unique formulas carefully formulated and tested that combine optimal proportions of the pain relieving agents mixed and distributed in various novel dosage forms for external use;
Ointments for dry skin
Creams for rapid absorption
Gels for ease of application and quick cleansing
Transdermal patches targeting specific areas
‘Roll-on’ lotions for carrying convenience
We have pharmacists trained in formulation and pain management who will talk with your prescriber to prepare a custom formula based on your specific source of pain. The vast majority of patients have success with the correct topical medication which will result in significant improvement in pain symptoms. Ideally this results in lowering the doses of the oral pain medications and eventually tapering patients off of them entirely.
Feel free to stop by at Meta to discuss the potential options which may dramatically improve your quality of life.
