When you need a prescription medication tailored to your unique needs, you may need to have your drug compounded to obtain the desired results. Reach out today to learn more.
Compounding is a complex process that not every pharmacy is able to offer. There are many different reasons why you may be unable to use certain medications, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be able to benefit from them and improve your quality of life. When you find yourself in a similar position, you may be able to request a compounded medication from a compounding pharmacy.
The Healthy Choice is a New York compounding pharmacy dedicated to integrative health. As we work to formulate the customized medications you need, we’ll work closely with your physician to get the most effective prescription medication for you and be available to answer any questions you might have.
What Are Compounded Medications?
Compounded medications are prescription drugs that are uniquely formulated to meet a person’s needs. For example, naltrexone is a drug that has been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat opioid addiction, but off-label uses, in much smaller doses, have been shown to benefit a wide variety of ailments including certain forms of cancer, multiple sclerosis, and fibromyalgia.
By compounding naltrexone into smaller doses (low dose naltrexone) patients can get the benefits of a drug that isn’t typically available in smaller doses.
Another benefit of compounding pharmacies is the ability to deliver drugs in a number of different ways. People who are unable to take capsules could instead get their prescriptions compounded into a topic cream, sublingual drops, injectable, or even lollipops.
When to Call a Compounding Pharmacy
Compounded drugs are not generally approved by the FDA, so you must have your unique prescription filled at a compounding pharmacy instead of a traditional pharmacy.
If you are interested in a specific type of treatment, whether low dose naltrexone, hormone replacement therapy, bio-identical hormone replacement therapy, compounded medications for sexual health, supplements, or other unique prescription drug, you should first speak with your doctor about the risks and benefits of the drug in question.
From there, if your physician feels that the benefits of a drug are greater than the potential risks or side effects, they will write you a prescription that can then be formulated by The Healthy Choice compounding pharmacy. We will work closely with your doctor to ensure your prescription medication is as effective as possible so your quality of life can improve.
