The Pharmacy - Compounding Prescriptions
Published at : 13 Dec 2020
Pharmacy compounding is the method of preparing medications which are tailored to the specific requirements of each patient and healthcare provider. Compounding Pharmacists focus on meeting special needs and solving medication problems.
Working with a Physician (or Dentist or Veterinarian), we prepare "customized" medications and unique dosage forms in a special compounding laboratory. We work closely with the prescriber to ensure that the choice of therapy is both safe and in the best interest of the patient, in order to receive the personalized care they deserve.
There are several reasons to compound prescription medications. The most important reason is non-compliance. Many patients are unable to take medications properly if they are allergic to preservatives or dyes, or are sensitive to standard drug strengths and their side effects. The ultimate goal in preparing these customized medications is to help the healthcare provider and the patient achieve a more positive therapeutic outcome.
To be a Compounding Pharmacist requires extensive education and training, considerable time investment, a close working relationship with the patient and healthcare provider, and significant capital investment. We acquire only the highest-grade, pharmaceutical chemicals from an FDA-registered supplier. We are members of Professional Compounding Centers of America and the International Academy of Compounding Pharmacists.
With access to approximately 10,000 formulas, we can offer compounding solutions to meet many specific needs, including:
Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement
Pain Management (including arthritis and joint pain, muscle spasms, muscle cramps, plantar fasciitis and neuropathic pain)
Veterinary (including flavored medicated treats or even ear gels that carry medication right through the skin to avoid the difficulty of administering oral medications)
These are just a few examples. We can also make medicated lollipops, or even anti-nausea medications that are absorbed through the skin.
So remember, when "one size fits all" doesn't fit yourneeds, we provide individual medications for individual patients!
Feel free to contact us or call us with any questions!
