Compounded Topical Ketamine
Studies have shown ketamine to be a beneficial remedy when seeking pain relief. This medication, however, is only available from a compounding pharmacy. Topical ketamine is a cream or gel compounded to contain the active ingredient (ketamine) and components to ensure the proper consistency and delivery of the medication. People with chronic pain problems such as neuropathic pain, complicated regional pain syndrome (CRPS), and fibromyalgia will often seek out alternative methods for pain relief. Not everyone tolerates or responds well to traditional methods, and topical ketamine provides an additional option for patients.
