Abstract:  Compounding pharmacists can provide a great therapeutic service to pain management patients who have overcome an addiction to prescribed or illegal drugs or alcohol. By collaborating with the physician and the patient, the compounder can develop an effective analgesic formulation with no addictive potential; a preparation that can be safely adjusted to meet changing medical needs. In this report, we present a personal account of the value of two compounded preparations that relieve severe musculoskeletal pain without producing mood-altering effects, as well as information about how those compounds are prepared.
