The main benefit of compounding is it saves you the difficulty of having to wait for the right medicine.
With compounding pharmacies, you have the assurance that you will be able to get the right medicine when you need it most.
If a prescribed medicine is no longer being commercially produced or is not available in regular pharmacies, a compounding pharmacy can recreate it for you. This addresses the problem of unique medical cases that affect only an extremely small percentage of the population.
Medicines sold over the counter come in specific doses based on averages to save on costs—to the detriment of some patients. If you need a higher or a lower dose version of the drug that is not commercially available, compounding pharmacies can help solve this problem as they can adjust the medicine’s dosage and strength.
Compounding pharmacies may also alter the form of the medicine. If a patient is unable to take the medicine in the commercially available capsule or tablet form, compounding pharmacists can make the same drug in liquid form. They can also change its taste, a service that can be useful for kids or pets who cannot tolerate the taste of manufactured drugs.
When large manufacturers discontinue production of certain drugs, they make it hard for the patients who still need these medications to fill their prescriptions. Compounding pharmacists play an important role in providing access to discontinued medications by recreating pharmaceutical-based ingredients in order to ensure that patients get the critical care they require.
From time to time, patients may need their medication in a different dosage form. Some medications can be also compounded in a topical form — cream or a gel that allows the medicine to be absorbed into the bloodstream through the skin. As a compounding pharmacist, we can offer these products in various dosage forms depending on the best method of compliance for you the patient.
Allergy, sensitivity, as well as a patient’s intolerance of dyes, lactose, gluten or alcohol, can cause the unwanted reactions when taking a certain medication. In other cases, commercially available medications may contain excipients such as fillers and preservatives that cannot be tolerated by the patient because of sensitivities or allergies to these substances. A compounding pharmacist can make a formula without the offensive ingredients, so a patient can still get the right treatment.
When it comes to compounding, identifying the patients’ needs is a top priority. We're here to help you. Please contact one of our pharmacists today.
