In every medical practice
there are a few patients who have not responded to traditional treatment or have a unique need or medical circumstance. These patients can be helped! We work together with patients and practitioners to provide the best solution for each medical problem.
Compounding allows a practitioner to prescribe and a pharmacist to prepare a customized medication or to place an available medication in a different dosage form to meet a specific patient need and improve compliance.
in prescribing – such as changing the dosage strength or the route of administration – is one of the many benefits available with compounded medications. Medications can often be prepared in a different dosage form and the concentration or flavor changed to make it more convenient to administer. Unique containers and delivery systems also provide many other options for medication administration.
Unavailable Medications can be compounded by our pharmacists using pharmaceutical- grade chemicals and specialized equipment, into a formulation best suited to each patient’s specific needs.
Hospice, Pain Management, Geriatric and Pediatric patients often have unique needs, and we can provide specific solutions for their medication problems.
Optimal Dose to achieve desired therapeutic goals, eliminating unnecessary waste & expense.
Change in Dosage Form for example a patient unable to swallow may prefer a lozenge, lollipop, transdermal preparation, suppository, etc.
Alternative Route of Administration to decrease incidence of side effects (i.e GI Upset) or avoid “first-pass” liver metabolism.
Elimination of Sugar, Dyes, Flavors, preservations, lactose, and other excipients which are not tolerated or may cause an allergic reaction.
Combination of Multiple Medications into a single preparation (stability permitting) for more convenient use and compliance.
