When Should I Use Medication Compounding?

when-should-i-use-medication-compounding

If you have been going to your local pharmacy, chances are, you may have heard about medication compounding and how it is a complex procedure mostly used by patients who have serious allergies or who have complicated medication needs and regimens.

However, unlike this common perception, anyone can benefit from this process of customizing medications through the combination, mixing, or alteration of ingredients.

We know this full well as a compounding pharmacy in Allen, Texas. That said, there are specific instances where compounding is most useful. Here are some of them:

  • To make it taste more agreeable to your palate

    Compounding can offset the bitter or sour taste of your medications or make them less sweet and vice versa.

  • To shorten wait times

    Compounding can mean shorter wait times if your independent pharmacy in Texas does not have your prescription available yet.

  • To save more

    Compounding can save you money as you would only need to pay for one type of prescription medication instead of two.

  • To improve medication adherence

    Compounding can reduce the number of tablets you take per day to one if you have been taking multiple ones.

Compounding is part of our pharmacy services at Allen Family Drug. Expertly concocted by our licensed pharmacists, you can rest assured that the preparation you will be taking will provide you with optimal therapeutic value. Avail of this service today by calling us.
