Improving Provider and Patient Access to Safe and Effective Pain Medications
Los Angeles, CA, March 4, 2014 — Targeted Medical Pharma, Inc. (OTCQB: TRGM), announced today the launch of a new e-prescribing platform for the medical food, Theramine. The secure online e-prescribing portal is available to healthcare providers in the United States, interested in a clinically validated, peer reviewed, non-pharmacologic alternative to narcotic and NSAID pain medications for patients suffering from pain syndromes.
Theramine is a medical food indicated for the dietary management of pain syndromes, and has been the subject of two double-blind, randomized, multi-center trials, which compared Theramine to low dose naproxen and ibuprofen. 256 subjects participated in the two studies across 10 independent sites that were randomized for treatment to receive Theramine alone (two capsules twice daily), NSAID or a combination of both. In both studies, Theramine showed a statistically significant reduction in inflammation and improvement in low back pain than either naproxen at 250mg daily or ibuprofen at 400mg daily.
“Clinical evidence suggests that by addressing the increased amino acid requirements of pain syndromes you can significantly improve pain perception and reduce inflammation,” said William Shell M.D., CEO and Chief Science Officer at Targeted Medical Pharma. “Theramine is a very useful clinical tool for physicians interested in managing pain and inflammation without the GI or cardiovascular side effects associated with NSAIDs or the addictive potential of narcotics.”
