Controlling Chronic Pain Without Opioids

Approximately 100 million Americans live with chronic pain. For decades, the main treatment has been opioids, and more opioid prescriptions are dispensed in the United States than any other country in the world. Opioids have been aggressively marketed by their manufacturers, but other medications may be more effective. In fact, studies have shown that ibuprofen or a combination of ibuprofen and acetaminophen may treat pain better than opioids. Topical creams, certain antidepressants, and medications such as gabapentin can ease chronic pain, too. If you or someone you love suffers from chronic pain, contact our compounding pharmacy. We will work together with you and your doctor to customize a non-opioid solution to relieve your pain.
