What is compounding? Compounding is the preparation of a customized medication by a pharmacist to meet an individual patient’s needs. It combines the traditional role of a pharmacist and chemist with the latest medical knowledge and technology.
BENEFITS OF COMPOUNDING:
Changing the dosage form of your medication—If you cannot swallow a tablet or capsule, we can compound your medication into a liquid, rectal suppository, or transdermal gel to carry medicine through the skin.
Reducing side effects—Often times, applying a medication topically, significantly reduces side effects such as stomach upset/ulcers, drowsiness, nausea, etc..
Eliminating unwanted additives—If you cannot tolerate your medication due to dyes or fillers such as lactose, sugar or alcohol, we can eliminate these components.
Providing commercially unavailable, unformulated or discontinued medications.
Flavoring a medication in order to make it more palatable.
