Q How are topical pain medications dispensed?
Dispensing and packaging vary from pharmacy to pharmacy. Typically at Bellevue Pharmacy we use a pump dispenser specifically designed for these types of pain creams. This means that you do not need to worry about measuring the dose. Your prescription label will tell you how many pumps = a dose. If you have any questions about your dose, please call and speak to one of our pharmacist.
