Benefits of Using a Compounding Pharmacy
Over the last 50 years manufacturers have played a significant role in advancing health care. Although mass-produced drugs meet the needs of most patients, there are still a number of patients who require a pharmacist to customize or compound medications to meet their unique medical needs. There are many important reasons to use a compounded medication instead of a standard manufactured prescription. For example, if you or a loved one is sick and unable to swallow medications, a cream or rub can be compounded to penetrate the skin for quick absorption. If giving your pet/animal medications is a problem, we can compound their prescription medications with flavors such as beef, liver, chicken, or even make them into a rub or gel that doesn’t have to be swallowed.
We know healthcare, and your health is our top priority! Smith-Caldwell Drug Store works unceasingly to ensure you get the ideal medications in the form that fits your life. With the ability to compound medications, we can provide custom medicines suited to any allergy or any necessary form adjustment. We establish a great relationship with your doctor and take the time to learn your medical history and current health plan. This means Smith-Caldwell can provide the best possible pharmaceutical care based on your specific needs.
Why may I need a compounding pharmacy?
Smith-Caldwell has a state-of-the-art compounding laboratory in order to prepare customized medicines. While mass-produced drugs can fit the needs of most, there are many instances when a patient may need an alteration to their prescription.
You may need compound medication for one or more of the following reasons.
- To customize the dosage
- To remove a nonessential ingredient to which you are allergic
- To alternate the prescription form in order to make it easier to consume (such as turning a pill into a liquid to account for a sore throat or trouble swallowing a pill)
- To create more palatable medicine flavors (which is particularly helpful for children and pets)
