New Survey Affirms Compounding Pharmacies' Vital Role in Public Health
Date:11/13/2012

ed in his esophagus causing damage. He was suffering prior to us compounding his medications into liquids.
  • We compound medications that are not commercially available that patients often cannot do without. An example is child coming out of a children's hospital in need of heart medications that must be reformulated from an adult's dose to a child's dose.
  • We compound medications for hospice patients who are near death. We provide dosage forms, other than oral, so people can live their last days with less pain and anxiety.
  • I have a patient who is allergic to all dyes, preservatives, corn and gluten. She cannot take most conventional medications due to the fact that they have most of these ingredients in them. I have been able to formulate her medicines into a capsule formulation and ensure that there is nothing she is allergic to in the capsules.
  • We have quite a few patients who are able to be seizure-free because we can compound their medications into age-appropriate doses that are not commercially available.
  • We provide pain relief to paralyzed patients who require special administration of medication not available anywhere on the market.
  • A copy of the survey is available here.
