Has traditional medicine let you down? Are you ready to take your health into your own hands with customized medications? Contact The Healthy Choice compounding pharmacy in New York.
When you need a prescription, you’re probably used to heading to your local CVS or another pharmacy, dropping it off, and picking it up shortly thereafter. But what happens when your pharmacy doesn’t have the medications you need? How do you go about obtaining your prescription then?
Compounding pharmacies are the place to go when you have a unique medication that wouldn’t be offered by a traditional pharmacy. The Healthy Choice compounding pharmacy in New York could provide you with the medicine you need to get back to your life.
What is Drug Compounding?
Drug compounding is the practice of formulating personalized medications. Compounding pharmacists are able to manipulate the drugs in order to tailor a drug to a specific patient’s needs.
For example, maybe a certain drug is only available at a 20 milligram dosage, but you need a fifteen-milligram dosage. A compounding pharmacy can manipulate the drug’s dosage so you can get the treatment you need.
Compounding pharmacies can also formulate drugs that can be delivered in many ways. Some more common medication deliverables include:
- Topical creams
- Rapid dissolving tablets
When a drug is only available in a specific form, a patient cannot use to deliver their medicine, or if a patient otherwise cannot take traditional drug forms, compounding pharmacies can adjust them to meet the patient’s individual needs.
How to Get Your Custom Medication in New York
If you are interested in obtaining a personalized medication, you’ll first need to reach out to your physician to discuss your health concerns. From there, they may recommend several treatment options that may be available through your traditional pharmacy.
If none of the treatment options work for you, you can reach out to The Healthy Choice compounding pharmacy to fill a custom prescription. It is important to note compounded medications are not generally approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). This is because the FDA cannot inspect and analyze every compounded drug for safety and effectiveness.
The FDA recognizes the need for compounded medications though, and regulates them as such. Because most compounded drugs are not FDA approved, expect your health insurer to reject coverage of the costs. This means you should plan on covering your prescription costs out of your own pocket.
