Compounding is the art by which new medications are created when a prescriber and pharmacy work together to fit the special needs of a patient, and must be mixed by a specialty pharmacy. It is more an art than science. Rather than relying on a standard “one-size-fits-all” medication to treat a patient, a prescriber can combine different ingredients and dosage forms in a new way to better meet the individual needs of their patient.
Once the prescriber has decided on the therapy they wish to use, they write a prescription which is brought to a specialty compounding pharmacy and is mixed together in an on-site lab.
The pharmacy provides the patient with instruction and follow ups to ensure that the newly created medication is working as the prescriber intends. If there are any adjustments needed, the pharmacy can easily speak with the prescriber to adjust the medication to continue to meet the patient's individual needs.
Other great uses for compounds include pet medications and infant dosing. Sometimes your pet requires a medication to feel better just like a patient and compounding provides an opportunity to meet their needs as well.
Infant medications are far harder to find in correct dosage forms and strengths, but compounding allows infants to be treated with medications that can provide life saving therapy not normally available.
If you have chronic joint pain or neuropathy, you know it is difficult to find relief. You often have to resort to multiple medications to provide temporary relief to this pain. You may want to talk to your prescriber about our pain cream therapy. We have done years of extensive testing to create compounded creams which can aid your current medication or replace it altogether to relieve your pain.
These creams, when applied locally, relieve pain in specific areas and when applied to trigger points, can relieve pain completely. Most of our patients are able to find relief mere hours after applying cream to their joints and some have even felt complete relief after only a few days use. We receive phone calls everyday from patients who were unable to leave their beds before using the pain cream and now are out enjoying life again, free of crippling pain.
If you begin using our compounded pain cream and you are not completely satisfied, we can work with your prescriber to adjust our formulas in order to find the relief you deserve. If for any reason your insurance doesn't pay for your pain cream prescription, we are able to offer many options to help you. Most commercial insurances pay for our pain creams and most Medicare Part D plans do as well.
We want you to experience the relief that our pain creams can offer, so we will work with you until your healthcare needs are met.
I had questions about a few over the counter medications, and the pharmacist stopped what she was doing to help me. I appreciated her taking the time to help me.
I wanted to try this pharmacy out since it was closer to my house. The staff helped me transfer my prescription and made the whole process a breeze. Thank you Super Drugs!
The staff at Super Drugs is amazing! I wasn’t sure which medications my child needed when she was sick, but with the help of the staff I was on my way back home in minutes.
