custom compound medications

We customize medications through compounding for the best dosage, strength and format to meet your prescription needs.

Customized prescription compounding offers the doctor flexibility to select the best medication and prescribe the most appropriate strength and dosage form for administration via the most desirable route for a particular patient. Medications are manufactured in a limited number of strengths and dosage forms due to stability concerns and the cost of stocking and distributing numerous formulations of each drug. Commercially available drugs will satisfy the needs of most patients but are not the optimal preparation to meet the needs of many patients.

Using pharmaceutical-grade chemicals and specialized equipment not found in most pharmacies, we can compound medications in doses and dosage forms that are not commercially available. Pharmaceutical companies may discontinue dosage forms for items with limited demand or when ingredients may be temporarily unavailable, but these medications may still be useful for many patients. We want to help you by providing the best care that is possible for every patient.

benefits of compounding

Best Strength

The dose of medication commercially available may not be as precise as needed for specific patient requirements. Wouldn’t it be great to be able to receive the right amount of drug to treat a condition without causing unnecessary side effects or the patient needing to break or crush tablets or take multiple capsules?

Appropriate Dosage Form

We can compound the needed medication in a variety of dosage forms such as:

  • Transdermal or topical creams, lotions, gels and solutions

  • Oral troches, capsules, and suspensions

  • Vaginal creams, capsules, and suppositories

  • Rectal suppositories

Free Of Excipients

Elixirs, syrups, and suspensions may contain preservatives such as alcohol which may be problematic, or sugar which makes the medication undesirable. We can compound sugar-free and preservative-free dosage forms. If a patient is allergic to a dye, lactose or other excipients, we can compound the medication without the ingredient causing additives.
