Pharmacy compounding is the art and science of preparing personalized medications for patients. Compounded medications are made based on a practitioners prescription in which individual ingredients are mixed together in the exact strength and dosage form required by the patient. This method allows the compounding pharmacist to work with the patient and the prescriber to customize a medication to meet the patient’s specific needs.
Noble Pharmacy has the ability to provide compounds for all age groups and illnesses. If you have any questions about compounding, please give us a call or stop by and speak to our knowledgable pharmacists.
Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT)
The advantage of compounded HRT is that it can be adapted specifically to fit each individual’s body and hormone levels. HRT can utilize hormones that have the exact chemical structure as the hormones in the human body. The body recognizes them and allows them to mimic the function of the hormones the body produces on its own.
Men’s Health Compounding
Your natural balance may be restored though supplementation of the hormone testosterone, which has been shown to relieve the symptoms of andropause. Of course, not all men are the same – different men need different amounts of testosterone to help address their individual symptoms. The value of hormone replacement through pharmacy compounding is its ability to fit your unique body and hormone levels, resulting in better accuracy and a healthier balance.
Pain Management Compounding
Pain is the most common symptom for which individuals seek medical help. Acute pain easily can evolve into chronic pain, which can become difficult to treat. Many commonly prescribed, commercially available pain relief medications help the symptoms associated with chronic conditions but they can also result in unwanted side effects. Many patients taking these medications come to accept these conditions as part of daily life, but they may find a better solution through pharmacy compounding.
Children are especially suited for custom compounded prescriptions. For various reasons, commercially manufactured drug forms sometimes may not meet the needs of every child. Compounding can benefit young patients in a variety of ways, from flavoring to individualized strengths and dosage forms, compounding can help make medication easier and less stressful for your child – and you!
As a pet owner, you want your pet to receive the highest-quality veterinary care. You want them to have treatment as sophisticated and compassionate as you might receive yourself. You’re not alone. Today’s veterinarians realize that pet owners are very knowledgeable, and expect a more advanced level of care.
The elderly are often the types of patients who benefit most from compounding. A compounding pharmacist can work directly with the physician and the patient to select a custom dosage and/or flavoring agent, which provides both an appropriate match for the medication’s properties and the patient’s taste preferences.
