LOS ANGELES – With clinical treatment for pain being such a common ailment treated and abused in the United States, Dr. Mona Vand – The Modern Pharmacist (www.DrMonaVand.com) discusses in her latest “Mona Minutes” video an alternative form of medication available through compounding pharmacies for controlled substances, which are highly addictive.
Dr. Vand points out that when it comes to severe or chronic pain, oftentimes patients are prescribed narcotic medications which has caused a huge stigma attached to these drugs.
“When you take a narcotic by mouth, it does help the pain. Another aspect is giving some patients this feeling of euphoria…this doesn’t happen to everyone…but for a lot of patients, this is the feeling they like and get hooked on.
“The advantage of applying something topically is it doesn’t give you that effect,” she continues. “Less of it is getting into your bloodstream, and it goes right where it needs to…so by not experiencing that euphoria and not getting addicted to that feeling and craving it, you’re not going to abuse it.”
