Meeting the Needs of our Patients through
Compounding and Home Healthcare Supplies
What is a “compounding” pharmacyand how can it help meet the needs of patients?
In every medical practice there are a few patients who do not respond to traditional treatments, or who have a unique need. Working with your physician, we can create custom-tailored medications, individualized according to the physician’s order.
Compounding can fill a need in overcoming these obstacles. Concentrations can be changed. We can change a formulation to change a flavor. Side effects such as gastrointestinal distress can be eliminated by putting the medication in a gel.
Manufacturers often discontinue products due to decreased utilization. However, there are often patients for whom this drug provided relief. Using pharmaceutical-grade chemicals and specialized equipment, we can compound a medication containing the same drug as the discontinued product, perhaps in a different flavor.
