Topical nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID) have been available in Europe* for years. However, here in America various forms of aspirin are the only topical NSAIDS available. In America, only a compounding pharmacy can provide truly useful topical NSAIDs.
Therapeutic NSAID concentrations can be achieved in tissues subjacent to site of application while maintaining low serum levels. This results in fewer GI effects, less incidence of drug-drug interactions, less sedation, and less affect on bleeding time.
We have prepared the following NSAIDs in topical form:
Diclofenac, ibuprofen, ketoprofen, naproxen, and indomethacin so far. Our most popular formulation is a combination of ketoprofen 10% + cyclobenzaprine 1% + lidocaine 5% in an absorption enhancing gel.
