Pain is a discomfort feeling felt by a patient. It is measured in terms of how a patient feels the discomfort. It is scaled from 0 to 10, 0 is considered as no pain and 10 is considered as unbearable. Each and every doctor aim to decrease it, prescribing various treatments and drugs. The scale between 0 to 5 are considered as mild and normal ache. But 5 and above is difficult to decrease, even the patient cannot tolerate it. Immediate and emergency medication should be planned to decrease it like pain killing injections and surgeries.
For the cases scaling between 0 to 5, pills or drugs are prescribed. With pills and drugs results are not permanent and sometimes they even doesn’t show any effect. Apart from these, they have side effects like indigestion, dizziness and other stomach related issues. With high dosage drugs even patients died. High levels of hormones are released in the body which causes stress and burning sensation causing spasm. Most of the drugs are designed in such way that they decrease these stress causing hormones in the body. But they fail to decrease the hormone secretion instead they make tissue to sleep which have ache. Due to this, drugs show instant results, but for long term use they damage the tissue, sometimes they even destroy or collapse tissue.
Over use of drugs causes heart failure in some cases. Pain has the power and ability to consume the body’s energy decreasing human immune system functionality. Damage to the immune system can lead to many other diseases like cancer and other diseases. The immune system is responsible for many diseases, damage to this system can make a patient to die. There are some chronic pains which are not tolerable, patients suffering with these pain attempts suicide as they cannot tolerate it.
There are many various treatments available to treat these conditions. Some patients respond well to surgeries, while others respond well to creams or gels and other responds well to other therapies. In most of the cases, drug pushing is a false choice. Opioids are the drugs which can decrease the pain, they are taken into the body through drug or injection. There are many other drugs like these which can relieve the discomfort but have many side effects. Overuse of these drugs makes patient too dependent on them. They are habituated to the drugs.
Doctors, physicians, therapists and even pharmacists say that drug pushing is a false choice. Doctors should not do this even on patient force. After several years research and development in the pharmaceutical industry, compounding medication replaced drug pushing. It is a process of personalizing drugs into patient convenient method. For severe chronic pain, doctors put a patient on drug pushing for long terms. This can be avoided using compounding medications. The pharmacists can convert high dosage opioids to patient convenience and flexibility. This became more popular and many doctors, patients are choosing this rather than drug fusing even in severe conditions. Working on patient requirement, doctor diagnosing and treatment selection, compounding of medicines is done by compounding pharmacies.
