Why Is Compounding Important?
#1 CUSTOM MEDICATIONS TAILORED TO YOUR NEEDS
At times, large pharmaceutical companies discontinue certain medications. Sometimes this occurs when not enough people take the medication. When this occurs, companies decide that it is no longer profitable to mass-produce it. This leaves patients who still need the medicine in a difficult situation. That’s where compounding pharmacists come into play. At My Prescription Coach, our compounding specialists are able to create therapeutically equivalents for discontinued medications.
#2 ALLERGY-FRIENDLY MEDICATION
Certain people are allergic to or intolerant of various ingredients commonly used in medications that are manufactured on a large scale. Commonly, these ingredients may be:
At My Prescription Coach Pharmacy, we have the expertise to create personalized medications, specially formulated to give you the treatment you need, without the problematic ingredients.
#3 MEDICATION THAT IS EASIER TO USE
Some medications have an unpleasant flavor, which makes you less likely to take it as directed. We flavor many medications to make them more palatable without compromising effectiveness. Sometimes you may need medication in a different dosage form. For example, patients who have difficulty swallowing pills may find it easier to take their medication in a pleasantly flavored liquid form. We can compound certain medications in a topical form like a cream or a gel that allows the medicine to be absorbed into the bloodstream through the skin.
