Compounding

Medication Compounding

Medication compounding is the art and science of combining individualized ingredients to prepare personalized medication for patients. The primary reason prescribers and pharmacists provide compounded medications is to avoid patient non-compliance.

Compounding prescriptions are tailored to each individual, making sure your needs are completely met. We can compound for strength variations, alternate dosage forms, and ingredient alteration.

We even offer veterinary compounding! Whether it’s Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy or a prescription for your furry friend, we’re always here to help!

PEDIATRIC COMPOUNDING

It’s no secret that most kids don’t like taking medicine. Children are especially suited for custom compound prescriptions. For various reasons, commercially manufactured drug forms sometimes may not meet the needs of every child.

BIO-IDENTICAL HORMONE REPLACEMENT

The advantage of compounded BHRT is that it can be adapted specifically to fit each individual’s body and hormone levels. Bio-identical hormones have the exact chemical structure as the hormones in the human body. The body recognizes them and allows them to mimic the function of the hormones the body produces on its own. Our compounding pharmacists work closely with healthcare providers to determine the best course of treatment for each patient.

PAIN MANAGEMENT COMPOUNDING

Struggling through chronic pain or the side effects of pain medication does not have to be a daily activity. Pharmacy compounding offers patients customized options for pain medication. Every individual is unique, and the types of pain experienced can be equally diverse. By working with our compounding pharmacists, your healthcare provider can prescribe treatments tailored specifically for your pain management needs.

VETERINARY COMPOUNDING

The practice of pharmacy compounding is becoming a popular solution to veterinary problems. As any pet owner is well aware, animals can be extremely difficult to treat with medications. Cats are notorious for refusing to swallow pills, and usually will eat right around one disguised in food. Dosages can be very tricky with dogs –  a dose of medication that works for an 80-pound Golden Retriever may be far too much for a 6-pound Yorkie. Our compounding pharmacists are equipped to work with your Veterinarian to take care of your pet’s medication needs.
