Keeping Your Healthcare Local With Compounding

The local economy goes beyond the farmer’s market. Small businesses are the cornerstone of a thriving community, and healthcare is no exception. While most locals are familiar with the family doctor, pharmacists also provide essential services to the community. Pharmacists fill hundreds of prescriptions daily, but many local pharmacies aren’t limited to just dispensing prescriptions. Some can perform compounding, an invaluable service for individuals who need specific treatments.


Putting it all together

Compounding is the tried and tested art of creating a new medicine by combining or mixing base ingredients. In some cases, compounding involves combining or altering multiple medications into a single dose. This approach also allows pharmacists to change the form of a drug, for example, from pill to liquid. A compounding pharmacy has the tools and personnel to create unique patient medication. The patient will visit the compounding pharmacy with the prescription. The pharmacists then work to create the requested medicine. In a short time, the patient receives the bespoke prescription. Some compounding pharmacies specialize even further in fields like veterinary medicine, fertility, and dermatology. Instead of filling prescriptions at a prominent provider, consider these 3 reasons to visit a local compound pharmacy.

1. Custom medicine, exceptional results

Here’s the number 1 reason why locals should use a compounding pharmacy. Every person is different, and medicine should not always be standardized. Yes, general medication created in large quantities is effective. Yet, some patients need custom medicines for the best results. For instance, a drug may not be sold in a specific dose. Some may only come in pill form, which can be inconvenient for the patient. The compounding pharmacy can navigate these hurdles, creating exactly what the patient needs in a specific form. This means higher confidence in the product and better adherence to the prescribed medication for the patient.

2. Access hard-to-find medicine

Some patients need lifesaving medicine that’s no longer produced or in circulation due to low demand. Compounding can recreate the exact drug using similar active ingredients, providing relief until the medication is available again. In some regions, prescription medications are often out of stock or have poor supply chains. A compound pharmacy with raw ingredients can recreate almost any drug the patient needs, ensuring continued health.

3. A strong community impact

Local businesses, like pharmacies, depend on a solid symbiotic partnership. The pharmacists provide medication and other services while the community brings continued patronage. Pharmacists also build strong relationships with locals, giving helpful advice and support during health transitions. Some pharmacies can also perform routine health checks and administer vaccinations. Choosing a local compound pharmacy means contributing to the health of the business and the larger community.

Fill a trusted, compound prescription

Obtaining and filling a prescription sounds easy, but there are many factors to consider. In some cases, the prescription does not quite meet the patient’s specific needs. Compounding allows patients to circumvent challenges and maintain optimal health. A local compound pharmacy can go the extra mile to ensure the patient receives the best possible medicine. The patient also contributes to the pharmacy’s long-term success, with both parties enjoying a fruitful relationship for years to come.
