Compounding Services

As a compounding pharmacy we employ the latest technology to insure each medication is made properly and safely by our personnel and for our patients. We are properly equipped to service the needs of anyone requiring a non-sterile compounded prescription. Call us today and ask to speak with the professional compounder for assistance in choosing the proper formulation for your needs, your child's needs, and your pet's needs. For more information check out our other sections on topical compounding, veterinary compounding, pain management compounding, pediatric compounding, and Hormone therapy compounding.

Transdermal Formulation Compounding

Using the latest research and topical vehicles of medication transport, we can effectively compound almost any medication into a gel that will be absorbed through skin. This method of medication delivery is ideal for those who have trouble swallowing pills, drinking medicated liquids, or self-injecting medication into the bloodstream. It also allows for the medication to bypass the stomach so as not to cause abdominal distress. This method is especially useful for pets, no more trying to shoot a liquid into their mouth or trying to force feed them capsules.

Veterinary Compounding

Getting an animal to take medication isn't always easy, but we can help with that! We can flavor your animal's prescription to the preferences of your pet or prepare it in an easier to administer dosage form, such as transdermal ointment, delicious chewy treats, or a liquid suspension form flavored in fish, chicken, beef, cheese, and many flavors. Tell us what flavor your animal companion loves to eat, and we'd love to make that for them.

Pain Management Compounding

For anyone with severe pain due to neuropathy, shingles, sprains, strains, back pain, we can compound topical pain creams, ointments, or transdermal gels that can greatly aid in the relief process, and may help reduce the need or dose of conventional controlled narcotic pain relievers such as morphine and oxycodone.

Pediatric Compounding

Many children have difficulty with conventional medication formulations. Most medications are studied as they relate to adults initially, and pediatric dosing is often figured out after a medication is released to market. Sometimes the dosing produced by the manufacturer is too high for a child who has a lower body mass than an adult. Children are also notoriously picky when it comes to what they eat and drink, and many have trouble swallowing pills. Our pediatric compounding service is especially effective for children as the dose is completely customizable along with the form, flavor, and color.

Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy Compounding

Those with menopause, andropause, hypothyroidism, and other such hormone dysfunctions may find relief with compounded hormone replacement therapies. We use only bio identical active ingredients for these compounds, which means these compounds are chemically identical to natural hormones your body produces on its own. Commercially manufactured products are chemically designed from other animal hormones that a human body may not recognize as well as bio identical hormones. As an added benefit, we can make these formulations as combination products; so if your prescriber wants you to take testosterone, progesterone, and estrogen, instead of taking three different medications we can combine them into one easy to use dosage form( e.g. capsules, gels, suppositories) in the hormone concentrations you need, not what "most" people need. Everyone is different and has different needs, so let us help you and only you.
