Slater Pharmacy is your local pharmacy in the Lake Ronkonkoma area, and we care about you and your health. We have been family owned for over 50 years and are proud of the many customers we have been able to help. One service we can provide is pain management compounding.
Pain management is normally done with prescription medications which may not be suitable for all people. Some may not be able to swallow pills, or the pills don’t effectively handle the pain. Slater Pharmacy can work with your health care professional to provide compounded drugs which can include:
- Lotions or cremes for direct application to painful areas for persons who don’t tolerate pills or need more immediate relief than waiting for a pill
- Creating lozenges, nasal sprays, or suppositories for those who can’t swallow pills
- Use of dermal patches to provide pain medication through the skin
- Avoiding pills can also reduce the chance of stomach or intestinal problems often seen when taking chronic pain medications
Compounding allows us to create targeted drugs without the use of unnecessary fillers or inert materials found in many commercial pills. We can also create specific dosages of pain medication to prevent customers from receiving too much or too little of their critical medications from pills.
Using medical compounding can help with pain relief from chronic conditions such as:
- Failed surgeries
- Muscle problems
- Nerve damage
