22 Jul Topical Pain Gel Helps Save Woman’s Job
“I would’ve lost my job if you hadn’t helped me”
A 49 year old woman who suffered with chronic neuropathic pain was out of options. She worked in the health care field where mistakes are not tolerated. She was on the verge of being fired because of poor work performance from side effects of her pain medications.
Trials with various pain medications had failed or caused intolerable side effects. By the time she heard about topical pain relief cream she was taking Lyrica for her pain but was having lots of drowsiness. She was then prescribed a combination of Ketamine 5%, Ketoprofen 5%, Gabapentin 5%, Lidocaine 5% in Lipoderm gel. After using it for several days she was able to stop her oral pain medications, her side effects went away and she was able to perform her job without making mistakes caused by the side effects of the oral medication.
This is one of many examples of how compounded topical pain relief gels can relieve pain and avoid systemic side effects often caused by prescription pain medications.
