Compound Topical Creams for Pain Management

Pain is one of the most common reasons people seek a physician.  One of the more popular treatments in pain management is the use of transdermal medications. Transdermal delivery allows a easy, non-invasive method for treatment.  Side effects and drug interactions are minimized because they are designed to provid high tissue concentrations without significant systemic absorption.  Absorption of topical creams in the blood stream is low, GI toxicity is rarely experienced.  This is especially beneficial to patients who have problems tolerating oral NSAID medications.
