Compounding Services

 

Compounding is the process of preparing medications that are custom-made in order to help meet the specific needs of each individual. Compounding allows the pharmacist and physician to tailor a medication to a patient based on the patient’s symptoms and test results. Compounding also enables the pharmacist to prepare medications that are no longer commercially available. Sometimes, a patient may need a different dosage form of a medication. For example, when a patient is experiencing nausea and vomiting, the doctor may prescribe Phenergan® (promethazine) tablets or suppositories. If the patient is vomiting, then a tablet will not be able to be absorbed. If the patient has diarrhea along with the nausea and vomiting, then a suppository will not work either. Here, we can compound Phenergan® (promethazine) into a gel that the patient can rub between the wrists. This is just one example of the many different types of medications that we can compound for our patients.

Compounded medications are directed towards meeting the specific needs of our patients in order to improve patient compliance and achieve more desirable results. Here, there is never just one option for a medication.
