Countless therapeutic possibilities exist when medications can be customized to meet the unique needs of a specific patient. Our compounding pharmacy solves patient medication problems by using the highest grade of ingredients to formulate needed medications in the optimal strength and dosage form for each patient.
Our compounding laboratory contains equipment that is not found in most pharmacies, enabling us to precisely compound each medication to the prescriber’s exact specifications. We consider the physical and chemical properties of active and inactive ingredients in order to prepare customized medications with the proper consistency, stability, texture, color, and taste, thereby optimizing the therapeutic of each preparation.
When a patient has a resistant or unique problem and commercially manufactured dosage forms do not precisely meet his or her specific needs, or if a drug is unpalatable or side effects of commercially available medications are unacceptable, contact our compounding professionals. We can change the dosage form or route of administration to improve acceptance, simplify administration, or decrease side effects—all of which can enhance compliance to medication protocols and improve therapeutic outcomes.
Compounding combines an ageless art with the latest medical knowledge and state-of-the art technology, allowing specially trained professionals to prepare customized medications to meet each patient’s specific needs. Compounding is fundamental to the profession of pharmacy and was a standard means of providing prescription medications before drugs began to produced in mass quantities by pharmaceutical manufacturers. The demand for professional compounding has increased as healthcare professionals and patients realize that commercially available medications do not meet the needs of many patients, and that these patients may have a better response to a customized dosage form that is “just what the doctor ordered”.
Our compounding professionals can prepare: Unique dosage forms containing the best dose of medication for each individual. Medications free of problem-causing excipients such as sugar, lactose, dyes, alcohol, gluten, or preservatives. Combinations of various compatible medications into a single dosage form for easier administration and improved compliance. Medications that are not commercially available. Novel medication delivery systems.
When deciding on a treatment protocol, prescribers do not need be constrained by the limited selection of strengths and dosage forms that are commercially available. Numerous factors, such as stability and shelf life, can limit the practicality of manufactured drugs that require special storage. It would be virtually impossible for a pharmaceutical company to manufacture medications in the precise dose and dosage form that would be best for every patient.
The compounding pharmacists’ armamentarium consists of every medication that is approved for use and meets governmental regulations, many novel administration devices, and any dosage form that can be imagined. Our compounding professionals can literally create the “best” medication for each patient, which can be administered by the most appropriate route to treat a specific problem.
