What is medication compounding?
Compounding is the art of customizing medications. Before the mass marketing of prescription drugs, pharmacists routinely made up medications to meet the needs of the individual. However, with the standardization of medications, the uniqueness of the individual has been left out.
With medication compounding, Sid’s Pharmacy can meet the special needs of each customer. We can change the form of the medication, customize the dosage or strength, and even improve the taste!
Compounding is especially valuable in circumstances like hormone replacement, where small dose changes can make a big difference in symptoms. Plus, we use only bio-identical ingredients in our hormone compounds.
Animals may require medication doses in strengths that are not commercially available. For our four-legged family members, we offer a full range of veterinary compounds. If you don’t want to fight to pill your cat, let us make her a yummy treat. In some cases, we can put the medication in a cream and you can apply it to your pet’s ear.
Bio Identical Compounding
Your personalized prescription can be put into many different forms, including a cream that you simply rub on a small area once or twice daily. Typically made up of 1-3 different hormones, we can adjust the dosing to meet your needs as your symptoms change.
