Learn › Why Compounded Medications
Medications that fit the unique needs of individual patients.
By combining FDA-approved pharmaceutical ingredients into customized formulations, compounding pharmacies eliminate treatment barriers for patients, when commercial prescription drugs are not suitable.
You take a commercially available medication but require a dose that is not available. We’ll make your “in-between” dose so that you don’t have to bother with a pill-cutter or accuracy in ensuring that you are taking your medication safely and correctly.
You are allergic to an ingredient in a particular medication. We’ll find custom alternatives for you that remove that ingredient.
A commercially available medication that you usually take is no longer available. We can duplicate it for you.
You are seeing a specialty physician, because you have body pain, are trying to conceive, get hot flashes or suffer from another hormonal imbalance, have a skin condition, have a thyroid disease, or have other specialized treatment needs. Our pharmacists will work with your physician to find the right balance and compounded formula that works for you.
You have a baby or a child that cannot swallow a pill. We can convert your child’s medicine into a suspension or liquid form to allow for easy administration.
Ease of use
You have a household pet or exotic animal that cannot easily take medicine. We can compound an easy-to-use form of the medication for you.
