Intrathecal Injections for Pain Pumps

We compound various medications for patients who have intrathecal pumps used for chronic pain or spasticity. We can fill orders for intrathecal medications for patients who get their intrathecal pumps refilled either at their doctor’s offices or at home through home care services. 

What to Expect: Targeted Drug Delivery >>

Common medications that go into an intrathecal pump for targeted drug delivery are:

  • Baclofen
  • Morphine
  • Clonidine
  • Bupivacaine
  • Hydromorphone
  • Prialt® (ziconotide)
  • Fentanyl

Video Resource: Targeted Drug Delivery with Medronic’s Synchro Med II pump

Targeted drug delivery utilizes an implanted, programmable pump to release specific doses of medication for pain or spasticity through a catheter directly into the spinal cord. 

“Intrathecal drug delivery offers patients a way to experience pain relief using a fraction of an oral medication dose, which can help to minimize the uncomfortable and sometimes intolerable side effects (e.g., drowsiness, dizziness, nausea, vomiting and constipation) that often accompany pain medication taken orally.”

Targeted drug delivery also can provide pain relief in patients who cannot achieve adequate analgesia even with high doses of oral opioid medications.

Testing of intrathecal injections at an independent analytical lab 

The intrathecal stock solutions have been tested by an independent analytical laboratory to establish that they have maintained their indicated potency and sterility over a 180-day period along with a USP method suitability testing.

Then, once compounded into single dose vials, the intrathecal stock solutions are quarantined, and samples are sent to an independent testing laboratory for the following tests prior to being released from quarantine for dispensing:

  • Potency testing
  • Sterility testing (USP 71)
  • Endotoxin testing (USP 85)
