"medication as individual as you are"
Sometimes you need a medication as individual as you are - maybe you're allergic to dyes, have trouble swallowing pills or don't like the taste of regular medicine. When you need a specialized prescription that is not commercially available, our experienced pharmacists can prepare a compounded prescription especially for you.
Your physician can work with Med-Equip Pharmacy to help create medications formulated specifically for the issue you are experiencing. This might mean a change in dosage form (e.g. creating a liquid or topical medication where one is not available) or combining multiple medications together to make a unique medication. We can prepare medications that are free of dies or other ingredients (e.g. lactose, gluten, alcohol, nutrasweet etc) if you are sensitive to these ingredients. At Med-Equip Pharmacy, we have the expertise to make these medications especially for you.
Dosage forms - Compounded dosage forms include capsules, creams, ointments, lotions, gels, suppositories, troches, solutions, suspensions, animal treats, lip balms, nasal sprays, topical sprays, powders, lozenges, shampoo and transdermals.
Types of compounding - There's a variety of medications that can be compounded, most commonly in the areas of dermatology, hormone replacement therapy, hospice, hypoallergenic, pain management, pediatric, podiatry, sports medicine and veterinary.
