What is compounding pharmacy?

Compounding pharmacy is a service that allows us to create customized medications for our patients, based on their individual needs and preferences. Unlike regular pharmacies, where you can only get standard, mass-produced medications that are approved by the FDA, compounding pharmacies can mix, combine, or alter the ingredients of a drug to create a medication that is tailored to your specific needs.

Compounding pharmacy is done by our specially trained and licensed pharmacists, who can modify the dosage, form, flavor, or ingredients of a drug, based on your doctor’s prescription and your personal needs.

How can compounding pharmacy benefit you?

Compounding pharmacy can offer you many benefits, such as:

You can get a medication that is customized to your specific needs, such as a different dosage, strength, or form, that is more effective, convenient, or comfortable for you.

You can get a medication that is free of ingredients that you are allergic or intolerant to, such as gluten, lactose, dye, or preservative.

You can get a medication that has a different flavor, color, or texture, that is more appealing or palatable for you, especially if you have difficulty swallowing or tasting.

You can get a medication that is more affordable, as you only pay for the ingredients and services that you need, and not for the extra costs of marketing, packaging, or distribution.

What are some examples of compounding pharmacy services?

At MediServ Pharmacy, we offer a wide range of compounding pharmacy services, such as:

Sterile compounding: We can prepare sterile medications that are injected into your tissue or blood, or put into your eyes. We follow strict quality and safety standards to ensure the accuracy and sterility of your medication.

Non-sterile compounding: We can prepare non-sterile medications that come in capsules, creams, ointments, solutions, sprays, and powders. We use pure, pharmaceutical-grade ingredients and specialized equipment to ensure the quality and efficacy of your medication.

Hormone replacement therapy: We can compound bioidentical hormones that are identical to the ones produced by your body. We can customize the dosage and form of your hormones to suit your needs and preferences.

Pain management: We can compound pain medications that are tailored to your specific pain condition and severity. We can also add ingredients that can enhance the effectiveness and reduce the side effects of your pain medication.

Dermatology: We can compound medications that can treat various skin conditions, such as acne, eczema, psoriasis, and rosacea. We can also compound cosmetic products, such as anti-aging creams, moisturizers, and sunscreens.

Pediatrics: We can compound medications that are suitable for children, such as liquids, chewables, gummies, and lollipops. We can also flavor and color the medications to make them more palatable and fun for kids.

Veterinary: We can compound medications that are suitable for pets, such as liquids, chewables, gels, and ear drops. We can also flavor and color the medications to make them more appealing and tastier for animals.

How can you get compounding pharmacy services from us?

If you are interested in getting compounding pharmacy services from us, you can follow these simple steps:

Consult with your doctor and discuss your medication needs and preferences. Your doctor will write a prescription for a compounded medication, specifying the active ingredients, strength, dosage form, and flavor.
