You can choose a non-opioid topical pain medication as a safe alternative for muscle or neuropathic pain management.

Topical Pain Medications Have Been Helping Patients With Chronic Pain Resulting From These Conditions:

  • Arthritis/Joint Pain
  • Diabetic Neuropathy
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Inflammation
  • Migraine Headaches
  • Muscle Spasms
  • Neuropathic Pain
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Podiatric Issues
  • Radiation Pain
  • Rectal Spasms
  • Shingles
  • Sports Injuries
  • Vaginal Pain
  • Wounds
Diabetes, heart disease, and cancer are prominent health issues within the United States, but pain affects more Americans than all of those issues combined. Pain is the most common symptom reported to doctors in association with a wide range of injuries and diseases.

Topical compounded medications are compounded using non-opioid based ingredients combined with active ingredients that are enhanced into a base to permeate the treatment area1. Compounding pharmacists help patients with chronic pain management by compounding customized topical pain medications using a permeation-enhancing base.

Valor Compounding Pharmacy compounds pain medications, just as compounding pharmacists have made specialty topical compounded for decades2. Active ingredients compounded into topical creams successfully penetrate the skin and have the potential to sidestep common side-effects of oral opioids. The reduction of side effects, like an upset stomach, and minimal effects on other organs, are key factors in using topical pain medications3a.

You should not accept pain as part of your daily life

Valor compounds topical pain medications in permeation enhancing bases, allowing simultaneous delivery of four active ingredients.

What Makes Compounded Topical Pain Medication Different?

The use of a transdermal cream often means the difference between treatment success or failure for patients unable to take medications in the common forms of orals or injectables. Application of cream to a localized area means a higher concentration at the site of application and lower the concentration effects throughout other parts of the body.

The benefit of a transdermal application includes a more direct path to the bloodstream3b. With the custom creation of topical pain medication, the likelihood of drugs mixing, and reducing the efficacy of one medication, is potentially reduced.

We offer multiple ways to order compounded medications. Select what’s convenient for you.
