Specialty Compounding

Compounding is creating personalized medication for patients when a commercially available drug does not meet the needs of the individual or is not available in a specific strength or dosage form.

Medications are not a one size fits all. That is where our partners at Silver Specialty Rx and their team of  experienced and knowledgeable pharmacists assist practitioners by tailoring medications to meet specific needs.

Frequently asked Questions

Do you have a question that you need assistance with?  Please contact us, we’ll be glad to assist you!

What is specialty compounding?

Compounding the creation of personalized medication for people. Medical professionals choose to use specialty compounds when a single drug does not meet an individual’s medical needs. This can be in terms of dosage or strength. Resident Care Pharmacy offers specialty compounding. This allows us to custom formulate medications to meet your specific needs. Compounding can be effective for pain management, dermatology, pediatric, veterinary care, and podiatry.

Are all the compounded medications safe to use?

Yes, when used as prescribed. All compounds are prescribed by a licenced doctor. Our pharmacy complies with all regulations. If you have questions about the safety of a compound, please speak to your doctor or one of our pharmacists.

Do I need to get a prescription from my physician for a compound?

Yes, compounded medications are the same as other medications you would receive from your health care provider. You will need a prescription. Our pharmacists may also be able to offer alternative over-the-counter solutions.

When would I need a customized compound?

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.

What are some reasons I would require a specialty compound?

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.

What are some of the common compound medications a pharmacy can prepare?

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.
