What is compounding? Why would I use it?

As you may know by now, VH Pharmacy specializes in pharmacy compounding. But what exactly does that mean? And more specifically, what does it mean for you? We’re glad you asked.

Pharmacy compounding is the art and science of making personalized medications for patients. They’re made from scratch, meaning that individual ingredients and flavors are mixed together in the exact dosage and form required by you – that means no one-size-fits-all prescription strengths or dosage forms. Are you used to taking your medication in pill form but would prefer to have it in a cherry flavored liquid? We can do that. Looking to take your pain medication in a ‘just right for me’ dosage form like a customized fast acting cream or gel instead of a bunch of tablets? We can do that, too.

The number of applications for pharmacy compounding is impressive, too. We can pair anti-aging products together in one easy-to-use cream, for example, and eliminate the need for multiple different products. We can also help in bio-identical hormone replacement therapy treatment, sports medicine compounds and pain management creams, too. Do you have a child who struggles to swallow medications in pill form? Our pediatric care solutions allow us to add in flavors that make the medications friendly to little taste buds, while delivering it in an easy-to-swallow liquid form, too. Going in for oral surgery? Are you afraid of needles? We have dental care gel applications, too, either for pain management or pre-surgical preparations.

In each of these scenarios, compliance is the number one objective. That means preparing a medication that makes it possible for you to use it consistently without concern over poor taste, side effects, or ease of use.

Does that clear up some of your pharmacy compounding questions? We hope so. Even so, we’d love to hear from you. If you have any questions about your health and nutrition or prescription compliance, give us a call. We’re happy to help! Reach us at 305-324-8777 today!
