Re: Pain management coccyx/lower back
The crème is a compounded prescription med. A rheumatologist gave it to me years ago. My new rheumy had never heard of it but since the pharmacist knew the ingredients, my doc called it in. I know how much of all the ingredients except for the ketamine, but the pharmacist should be able to figure it out. It's Ibuprofen 2%, Ketoprofen 5%, Amiltriptyline 2%, and Carbazapine 2%. Then they mix it with some kind of crème and you just apply topically. It takes only a very small amount so it lasts for a very long time, literally years. Again, the only medicine I don't know the percentage for is the ketamine, but the doc should be able to figure it out.
Just an FYI, with all the attention on meds lately, my doc didn't want to order it with the ketamine so he ordered it with the other 4 ingredients and it did nothing. So the ketamine is a major part of the pain relief and the pharmacist confirmed that. It's such a small amount and because it's topical, it does not affect you in a negative way unless your skin is allergic to one of the ingredients.
