Customized Compounds: A Personalized Path to Health and Wellness

Every Mega Aid compound is a patient-specific combination of FDA approved drug ingredients, and are only available by prescription. As any patient’s unique situation may present challenges, we have found prescribing physicians appreciate having a Mega Aid pharmacist always available to consult with them on the specification of ingredients, mechanisms of action, drug dosages, and the optimal dispensing form to treat their patient’s condition.

When you consult with a Mega Aid pharmacist on a patient’s condition and potential compound therapy treatment plan, several factors will be considered, including your patient’s:

  • Physical profile and overall health
  • Individual and family and medical history
  • Known drug tolerances, allergies or sensitivities
  • The health condition of specific organs
  • Any known gastrointestinal issues
  • Physical limitations or physiological considerations
  • Any potential environmental or work-place factors

Compounds from Mega Aid are produced by licensed pharmacists within a controlled laboratory facility using high-precision equipment. Every aspect of our compound production – personnel qualifications, process flow, activity records, ingredient certifications, drug safety, and quality assurance – adheres to stringent federal and state regulatory guidelines for pharmacies and pharmaceuticals, and by the quality and safety performance benchmark standards of the Pharmacy Compounding Accreditation Board.

Pain Management with Topically Administered Compound Therapies

We are frequently called upon by physicians to help address a patient’s pain condition. Our goal in working with you to treat your patient’s pain condition is to help improve the patient’s function, optimize independence, and maximize their quality of life. Based on our experience and clinical study data, the use of a topical drug or combination of topical drugs provides an appropriate means of delivering analgesia.

Our approach to managing pain is the individualization of treatment, the use of medication delivery methods that avoid undesirable side effects, and a therapy that considers ease-of-use, compliance and cost of any analgesic prescribed topical for your patient. A variety of active ingredients, in a range of dosage strengths, can be prescribed for very specific therapeutic reasons. Some of these ingredients include:

  • Dexamethasone
  • Piroxicam
  • Dexamethasone
  • Ketoprofen
  • Ketamine
  • Amitriptyline
  • Lidocaine
  • Baclofen
  • Cyclobenzaprine

Thus, we prepare custom creams, gels, and ointments that let you deliver an ingredient or combination of ingredients directly to the site of pain in a formula that is appropriate for the patient and less likely to produce side effects. Ask our knowledgeable clinical about analgesic delivery options and the bioavailability of the drug prescribed for your patient.
