You may have heard the term “compounded medications” before and might be wondering if it would be beneficial for you.

What is compounding?

The compounding process personalizes a drug to specific requirements that are not available as a standard prescription. For example, our compounding pharmacy can make dye-free, preservative-free, alcohol-free, gluten-free, and sugar-free forms of drugs, as well as tailor dosage strength and even formulate combinations of 2 or more drugs in just the right ratio for you.

Why do I need compounded medications?

There are many reasons why a person could need compounded medications, and we work closely with doctors to create the best formulations. Some common reasons why a doctor would prescribe a compounded drug could be that you’re allergic to an ingredient in the standard medication or the dosage and/or form of the drug you need isn’t available. Nearly all forms of medications can be compounded, from injections and oral capsules to creams, gels, and ointments.

What are the benefits of compounding?

Sometimes, the standard and commercial forms of medication don’t work, and one-size-fits-all health solutions aren’t always the quick fix for everyone. As we mentioned earlier, compounded medications are tailor-made to be exactly the right strength and free from any allergens, personalized into your preferred drug form. So if you struggle to swallow a pill, we can easily change it to a lozenge or oral liquid. This is also a great option for children! You’re also able to combine multiple medications into one dose using compounding services, as well as have access to discontinued medications. There’s no need to cut up pills or split capsule contents, potentially causing accuracy issues, when you have access to a compounding pharmacy!
