Custom Made Medicines to Meet Unique Needs
The advent of mass manufacturing has caused a shift in the practice of medicine away from the individual. Each of us is unique and while we may sometimes benefit from "one size fits all" technology (perhaps 2 or 3 sizes of some manufactured medicines), it may be that a customized formula of the medication may be more beneficial. An individual formula can take into account sensitivities to dyes or preservatives, a need for a stronger or weaker dose or even a different form for someone who does not care to swallow medicines or would like to minimize stress to internal organs such as the stomach or liver.
Our compounding pharmacists, working with you and your physicians, can make medicines that are easier on your system and more pleasant to take or use.
We have specialized equipment to mix medicines in many different forms including lollipops, creams, ointments, injectables, suppositories, capsules, of course, and others. Because compounding allows almost unlimited variations, we can combine some medicines to reduce the number of doses necessary.
Do Not Forget the Pets
If you've ever tried to get a cat to swallow a pill, you will be especially pleased to know that a number of medicines can be formulated in a cream form that can be rubbed into the inside of the cat's ear. This works well for other pets too. We have extensive experience formulating veterinary medicines.
