I make reference to the use of topical compounding cremes for neuropathic pain that are proving to be quite helpful in individuals with recalcitrant neuropathic pain - often more helpful than oral agents.
The web site CentralDrugsRx.com has a comprehensive listing of the many possible compounding possibilities. The value of compounding medications is that they can be individualized to the person, different concentrations and proportions to meet an individuals's symptomatic needs.
Compounding creme medications can contain lidocaine, amitryptoline, ketamine, tramadol, gabapentine, clinodine, baclofen - and more.
Go to the CentralDrugsRx.com web site and you will find a listing of suggested compounding agents. It is a useful tool in discussing with physicians. Many physicians are not aware of the compounding possibilities.
I hope that this provides you with a new avenue of hope for pain mediation for your husband, and an improved quality of day-to-day life for him - and you.
