Q Why does my topical pain cream have to be specially compounded for me?
Compounding pharmacists have far more options than commercial medicines provide, since commercial medicines are available only in fixed doses and in certain forms. (Many pain medications are available commercially in oral form only.) Compounded topical pain formulations can include a number of drugs, all in one preparation.
