Compound cream pain medications have become more popular among some doctors, and extremely expensive, with price tags of $1,000 and more becoming commonplace. KPCC has produced a series of stories on the compound cream industry, looking at cost, marketing and lax regulation, and an alleged criminal conspiracy in Orange County to defraud workers’ compensation insurers with an onslaught of pricey compound cream prescriptions.
We’re interested in hearing whether your doctor has prescribed, or tried to prescribe, a compound cream to treat pain you’re experiencing.
