Compounding combines an ageless art with the latest medical knowledge and state-of-the-art technology, allowing specially trained pharmacists to prepare customized medications to meet each patient’s specific needs. Compounding is fundamental to the profession of pharmacy and was standard means of providing prescription medications before drugs began to be produced in mass quantities by manufacturers.
The demand for professional compounding has increased as healthcare professionals and patients realize that the limited number of strengths and dosage forms that are commercially available do not meet the needs of many patients.
We have the compounding equipment and chemicals needed to meet the special needs of each patient. Our compounding capability embraces the triad relationship of patient, physician, and pharmacist, allowing us to work together to solve unique medical needs. Our goal is to allow the physician to prescribe medicine that fits the patient’s needs rather than fitting the patient to the medicine.
Compounding can be especially helpful for children and family pets that dislike the taste or texture of medications or have difficulty swallow pills and may involve:
- Preparations without preservatives or dyes for patients with allergies
- Formulating a drug in a different strength than what is commercially available
- Using a wide variety of dosage forms such as capsules, topical preparations, suppositories, troches, tablet triturate, liquid suspensions, injectable medications and many more.
Customized medication compounding services can enhance many other areas of medicine including:
- HORMONE THERAPY
- VETERINARY MEDICINE
- PEDIATRIC MEDICINE
- PAIN MANAGEMENT
- HOSPICE CARE
