Transdermal Pain Management

 

We are the home of NaPro GelTM, a family of speciality, compounded topical pain products. NaPro GelTM was developed by two QP pharmacists with a vision – to provide a safe and effective alternative for pain management. Many people are struggling with chronic pain and present with their own unique circumstances. Often these patients are at greater risk for unwanted side effects due to gastrointestinal intolerance or from extensive systemic distribution.

NaPro GelTM provides an established modality for prescribers to help their patients feel relief. NaPro GelTM products may be used as monotherapy or may be combined with a multi-modal pain care regimen.

Formulations:

  • NaPro Gel – General Pain and Inflammation – also available in Extra-Strength (ES)
  • NaPro Gel Plus – Added Neuropathic and Local Anesthetic Effect
  • NaPro Gel N – Neuropathic Pain
  • NaPro Gel M – Skeletal Muscle Relaxant
  • NaPro Gel All-In-One – Combination formulation for chronic pain

The Compounding Lab also provides advanced services including the development of individualized topical formulations to match a patient’s analgesia requirements. Our compounding pharmacists work collaboratively with prescribers to develop the right formulation for your needs. New, custom and prescriber-specific formulations are encouraged to ensure our patients experience the best possible outcomes.
