Thinking Out Of the Box with Compounding
The “one-size-fits-all” approach works well for many people for a wide variety of reasons. When it comes to prescription medicine, however, not everyone is the same. Compounding pharmacists know that each person is different, and they can make customized medications to meet the specific needs of each individual patient. Working with you, your physician, or your health care provider, a compounding pharmacist can prepare the proper dosage, form, and combination of medications for a tailor-made treatment plan. Still not convinced? Here are just some of the numerous benefits to using a compounding pharmacy.
Compounding is great for medication that is out of stock or no longer available. Compounding pharmacists can provide much needed access to unavailable medicines, ensuring patients get the vital care they need. Why go without if you don’t have to? A compounding pharmacy can reformulate the medication you need to fill your prescriptions.
Alternative Dosage Forms
Having a hard time swallowing a pill? Sometimes a patient might require an alternative dosage form for their medication. A pharmacist can compound medicine into a wide range of options, including transdermal gels, topical sprays and creams, suppositories, troches, or lozenges to help with your precise symptoms and condition.
Better Tasting Medication
No one likes taking unpleasant tasting medicine. A compounding pharmacist can prepare great tasting medication, custom-making the prescription with a flavour of your choice. This can be a real benefit when it comes to finicky patients like children, the elderly, or even pets!
Looking to stay clear of allergens and other unwanted substances? Dyes, sugar, gluten, lactose, alcohol, and preservatives can cause a host of reactions for many people when taking certain medications. A compounding pharmacist can create a formula without unwanted and unnecessary substances, helping you get what you need, and eliminating what you don’t.
