We can provide alternate dosage forms. Frequently medicines are only available in one form. This often presents a problem for patients who have trouble with the traditional pill or capsule. However, through compounding we can make several different forms of your required medication.
- Oral suspensions/solutions
- Sublingual drops
- Transdermal creams, lotions, gels
- Specialty flavors and scents
- Forms free of dye, sugar and/or preservatives
Prescription compounding is achieved through an essential triad relationship between the patient, physician and pharmacist. The prescriber/provider first prescribes the medication. The pharmacist then takes the necessary ingredients, compounds them, and dispenses the medicines to the patient after a thorough and personal consultation. This enables patients to receive the type of personalized care they need and allows the pharmacist to provide more patient oriented services; services that many times conventional pharmacies overlook.
