So read on and find out everything you need to know about compounding:
What is compounding?
Some of you may be wondering, "What is compounding?". Compounding is the practice of making customized medicines by combining specific ingredients in calculated quantities to best address an individual patient’s needs. By creating medications right here at our pharmacy, we are able to provide personalized medications that are tailored to you!
What types of medications can be created through compounding?
Essentially any medication that you may need can be created through compounding. Our pharmacists are highly trained and are experts at creating medications that are exactly tailored to the needs of our patients. Whether you need capsules, creams, ointments, eye drops, or other types of medications, we have compounding solutions available for you.
What are the benefits of compounding?
One of the most significant benefits of compounding is the individualized nature of the medication you will receive. While many standardized medications are designed to be one-size-fits-all, we can create a custom compounded medication that considers all of your health needs, preferences, potential intolerances, and more. Additionally, compounding can sometimes help to save you money on your medications, as we can often create medications with the same active ingredients as big-name brands, but at a fraction of the cost. Just stop by to chat with our pharmacists and find out more about all the benefits that compounding can provide!
Is compounding safe?
Absolutely. Our compounding services are conducted in sterile environments by our team of highly trained pharmacists. We always keep your best interests at heart and work hard to deliver safe and effective medications.
Who can benefit from compounding?
Just about anyone who needs medications has the potential to benefit from compounded medications, as they are optimized for your specific health needs, which can improve overall outcomes. For instance, if you are allergic to a certain type of dye that is present in a medication you need, we can provide that medication without that specific ingredient. If you have trouble taking your medication via the dosage form it comes in, we can create an alternative dosage form to better fit your needs. No matter who you are or what type of medications you require, compounding provides customized solutions that are best suited to your individual needs.
Now that you know more about compounding, how it works, and the ways that it can benefit you, you may be wondering how to get started with our compounding services here at The Palms Pharmacy.
