If you need medications to relieve pain, you also need to know that it’s not a simple process. Pain has many causes, and each person responds to the same medication differently.

To get help with medications, schedule an appointment online or call one of the 11 offices across two states: Fort Walton Beach, Milton, Crestview, Pensacola, Panama City, and Tallahassee, Florida, and Mobile, Daphne, and Dothan, Alabama.


Medication Management Q & A

What is medication management?

When you take multiple medications, opioids, or other powerful pain medications, nothing is more important than medication management.

The team at DYNAMIC Pain and Wellness offers medication management to:

  • Prevent or quickly treat side effects
  • Monitor the results of your medications
  • Lower the risk of dependence on pain medications
  • Make sure you’re taking the best medication at the right dose

For these reasons, you’ll have regular appointments so your doctor can evaluate your ongoing health and adjust your medications as needed for optimal relief from your pain and other symptoms.

What types of pain-relieving medications might I receive?

Your doctor at DYNAMIC Pain and Wellness prescribes the best medication based on your medical history and the cause and severity of your pain. In most cases, treatment begins with non-opioid medications. If your pain continues or gets worse, your doctor considers opioids.

These are a few types of medications you may receive to relieve pain:

  • Analgesics to relieve pain but not inflammation
  • Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS) to reduce inflammation and pain
  • Steroids to significantly reduce inflammation
  • Muscle relaxants to relieve pain from cramped muscles
  • Antidepressants to relieve chronic pain, even if you don’t have depression
  • Anticonvulsants to reduce pain signals from damaged nerves
  • Narcotics (opioids) to stop pain messages from your brain to your body

The team at DYNAMIC Pain and Wellness also offers anesthetic and steroid injections that relieve pain when they’re injected near the nerves sending pain signals.

How does medication management prevent opioid dependence?

The experienced doctors at DYNAMIC Pain and Wellness realize that narcotics like opioids often have an essential role in pain relief. Though they don’t use narcotics as the first line of treatment, they believe in using them as part of a comprehensive treatment plan.

Narcotics are highly addictive, which is a serious concern for patients. DYNAMIC Pain and Wellness erases those worries with careful medication management. They understand the concerns and prescribe medications with the goal of giving you the highest quality of life, while also avoiding side effects and dependence.

In addition to using medication management, the team at DYNAMIC Pain and Wellness specializes in multiple treatment options that can reduce the dose of narcotics you may need and gradually provide enough relief to wean you off of opioids.
