Considering that each patient’s health care solutions must be as unique as the individual, the most effective medical solutions often arise from compounding.
Compounding combines essential pharmacy skills with the latest technology and scientific research to allow specially-trained professionals to create custom medications. The ability to do this has been at the heart of the pharmacy profession for decades, and in fact was the original method of providing prescription medications before the rise of mass-market manufacturing.
Today, professional custom compounding is again becoming a gold-standard in patient care as a growing number of health practitioners and patients agree that mass-produced pharmaceuticals are often limited in selection of strengths and dosages. Compounding provides a much broader scope of medication choices than commercially made formulas, which in turn better answers the individual needs of patients and the courses of treatment recommended by their doctors.
At United Pharmacy, our compounding professionals can prepare:
- Unique dosage forms containing the most appropriate dosages of medication for individual patients
- Medication delivery forms that are not commercially available – such as: transdermal gels, troches, “chewables,” and lollipops
- Medications free of potentially problem-causing agents such as dyes, sugars, lactose, or alcohol
- Other medications and combinations not commercially available
