Personalized Medications for Neurology Patients
The Body’s Nervous System Plays an Important Role
We know that neurological disorders are common and can impact anyone. Often times, when symptoms start, the source or issue is unknown. A trip to the doctor or a referral to a neurologist is often required to learn more about what may be the cause and what may be the solution.
Our pharmacists regularly team up with neurology patients and neurologists to help provide custom medications for a number of conditions such as:
- Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
- Migraine Headaches
- Neuropathic Pain
- Diabetic Neuropathy
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
What is Needed, is not Always Available
There are many mass-produced medications on the market to help with these conditions. However, due to their strength, dosage form, or other factors you may find as you research, they may not always be your best choice. Additionally, many people have difficulty swallowing pills or tablets, presenting further obstacles to treatment.
Makers of mass-produced pain relievers often formulate their products based on an “average patient”: average body weight, average pain tolerances, and so on. This one-size-fits-all medicine simply doesn’t work for everyone. Our pharmacy is here to help.
Our pharmacy offers customized medication options tailor-made for you to help with your specific neurological condition.
Customized Medication Options
Working with you, and your provider, our pharmacy team works hard to provide you with neurology medication alternatives customized to meet your specific needs.
You may already be taking a variety of medications to address your condition. Often, we can compound your various medications into a single capsule or topical preparation for your convenience.
We also offer alternative dosage forms to deliver your medication, that may be more convenient for you. These include:
- Topical Gels
- And More
Sometimes the medication you need is currently not available from the manufacturer due to shortages. Our pharmacy may still have the active ingredient in our inventory and be able compound it for you into a customized medicine.
We see many patients successfully use topical medications that we make at our pharmacy. These topical creams can provide targeted, precise dosages, and many times are associated with fewer side effects than if those medications are taken by mouth.
Also, just because it is customized, doesn’t necessarily mean it’s more expensive. You may even see the cost of your medication go down when you have it tailor-made just for you.
