Compounding is the timeless process of formulating medications for the specific health condition of the patient. This method has been used for ages and we still use it today to help patients take optimal advantage of their medications.
Some medications that are prescribed by the physician are not available on drugstore shelves. It’s not even commercially-produced but it’s something that a particular patient might need at some point. This is where compounding comes in handy.
With compounding, a medication’s dosage, form, and taste can be altered based on the physician’s prescription. Two or more medications can even be combined so the patient only needs to take it once. At Advanced Care Pharmacy, we offer compounding services which can be used for:
- Wound Care (topical medications)
- Unique Dosage Requirements
- Medication Flavoring
- …and many others
Ask your physician about compounding the next time you have a check-up. If you get a compounding prescription, bring it with you to Advanced Care Pharmacy and we’ll prepare your medications as ordered.
