Compounding is an effective process to provide a medical solution in unique circumstances. The most common is creating personalized medication when a commercially available drug does not meet the patient’s needs. For example, a patient has a skin rash. Commercially available rash creams do not meet the medical requirements to eliminate the rash. A doctor will prescribe a combination of creams that together, will help reduce the rash.
There are many situations where compound medication is the best solution. For example, if you have certain allergies or have reactions to certain medical ingredients. Or perhaps the method for taking a prescription is not possible for you. For example, you have trouble swallowing pills, so a liquid compound is used as an alternative.
Pharmacies can offer compounds in several ways. Some of the most used compounds are in the form of creams, ointments, lip balms, capsules, suppositories and many more. Speak with our pharmacist about your options.
