Compounded Medicine: It Makes A Difference.

Many times a medication is no longer made by the manufacturer, or a patient is unable to take the medication in the form that is commercially available. In these instances, a physician will contact a compounding pharmacy, like Wellness Pharmacy®, to provide solutions to these challenges.Wellness Pharmacy® can:

  • Customize dosages and strengths of medications
  • Add flavoring to medications to make them more palatable
  • Create alternate dosage forms
  • Compound discontinued or hard to find medications

The relationship between prescriber, compounder and patient:

Physicians, compounding pharmacists and patients work together to improve the lives of a patient by identify the best medication and the ideal delivery option for each patient. When physicians  and patients need alternative ways to treat their patients they turned to a licensed compounding pharmacy for medicine problem solving.

Wellness Pharmacy® has extensive experience formulating pharmaceutical prescriptions to enhance the treatment of all patients.

Transdermal Gels:
If you are looking for an alternative to oral medications, transdermal gels may be a delivery form to consider. Wellness can use the active ingredients of a medication and create a gel which is absorbed through the skin.

In some cases, capsules may be an easier medicating option. Encapsulation can be helpful to combine several ingredients. Also, many discontinued or no longer commercially available drugs are compounded into capsule form.

Flavor Enhancers:
Medication can often taste bitter by itself. When administering an oral liquid medication you should consider adding one of our many flavor enhancers to the medication.
