Topical Analgesic in treating Neuropathic and Musculoskeletal Pain

October 29, 2013

In the recent article in PainMedicine discusses the role of topical administration of anesthetics and analgesics.  One of the benefits is that it allows for the efficient, painless delivery of medications that may reduce systemic side effects associated with the medication while providing clinical advantages over injected or oral administration for the same clinical situation. Topical administration of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), lidocaine, capsaicin, and other agents is useful for a range of conditions including acute and chronic musculoskeletal pain.
