Pain is the first indication that something is critically wrong in our body. Some malfunction or damage to the nerve or an internal organ has taken place within the body indicating attention and medical treatment. Unbearable pain can prevent a patient from working and loses interest in recreation and daily activities.
There are variations of pain. Some have mild pain that gets relieved with an over-the-counter pain killer. Some have chronic pain that can be more difficult to be managed to require the need for medical attention and customized treatment protocols. That’s where Erie Compounding Pharmacy steps in. At Erie, we have customized remedies that offer pain relief from acute and chronic pain and we make customized medicines as per your Doctor’s prescription. If you seek immediate pain relief, contact us.

No side effects
At Erie, we recommend medicines to be used topically to avoid side effects caused by oral administration. We prepare topical pain relief medicines by using effective medicinal drugs incorporating into a properly compounded transdermal gel. When medications are administered transdermally, they are not absorbed through the gastrointestinal system and do not undergo first-pass hepatic metabolism avoiding side effects. Topical and transdermal gels and creams can be formulated to provide high local concentrations at the site of application (e.g., NSAIDs for joint pain), for trigger point application (e.g., combinations of medications for neuropathic pain), or in a base that will allow systemic absorption.
Flavored pain medicine
At Erie Compounding Pharmacy, we make medicines taste better. From a child who can’t stand the taste of a pain killer tablet to an adult who absolutely refuses to take an antibiotic, taking medicine rarely is a pleasurable experience. It doesn’t have to be that way. To us, each patient is unique, with certain likes and dislikes. Others have difficulty swallowing a pill and might respond better if the pill were compounded into a liquid suspension instead. A distinctive solution to these issues is flavored medicine. We believe that medicines don’t have to taste bad.
Custom made pain relief medications
Topical and transdermal pain relief medications have wide popularity among health care providers and patients when they are used, but there are indications that not all providers are familiar with how to best prescribe them and use them. Erie Compounding Pharmacy has conducted various tests and has created a plethora of compounded topical pain medications, with a high success rate. Topical and transdermal preparations are often preferred to oral medications due to decreased systemic side effects and the avoidance of first-pass hepatic metabolism. Our dosage forms include creams, ointments, and topical gels; medication sticks, foams, sprays, and nasal sprays.
At Erie, we prepare medicines to relieve all kinds of pains such as sports injury, headache, foot pain, joint pain, knee pain, burning foot syndrome, arthritis, fibromyalgia, back pain, neuropathic pain. We also cater to specific area pain such as headache, neck, and facial pain.

NSAID drugs are known as Non-steroidal Anti-inflammatory Drugs are medications that relieve or reduce pain. The most popular examples of this group of drugs are aspirin and ibuprofen. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) also come under the wider definition of non-opioid analgesics.
Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are widely used in the treatment of arthritic conditions, but their usefulness is often limited by dose-dependent adverse events such as gastrointestinal disturbances, cardiovascular events, and renal toxicity. To avoid such risky side effects, at Erie, we strongly recommend the use of topical formulations, which deliver analgesic concentrations locally, at the site of inflammation. Meta-analyses have confirmed the efficacy and safety of these topical preparations. However, it is important to recognize that pharmacokinetics and absorption from compounded topical formulations can vary, depending on the agent, the underlying disorder, and the site of application. It is therefore essential to consider the patient, the medicinal drug, and the drug delivery mechanism when selecting a topical NSAID preparation.
