NSAIDs, or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, have long helped patients with back aches, headaches, or arthritis. However, side effects often interfere with the ability of these drugs to work well.
Our team can compound topical NSAIDs that work directly on a painful or inflamed site while avoiding the side effects of oral doses. Although many patients prefer this delivery method, many patients have also found that different topical NSAIDs do not absorb with the same effectiveness. Causes for this can depend on the application site, the drug formulation, and the patient’s underlying condition (if any).
