questions about compounding
What is compounding?
Throughout history, people have made compounds, or custom-blended medications: the Bible even makes mention of medicinal ointments dispensed by a physician. These days, most prescriptions that people take are a “one size fits all” solution. The problem with this is that what works for one person won’t work for all; individuals have their own medical needs. We work to meet the needs of each patient. For instance, some people cannot swallow pills; in this case, we can put medication into liquid form. Others may have allergies and we can work out a solution for that as well. Bio-identical hormones can be compounded as trochees, capsules, creams, and more. Pain medications can even be topical, minimizing the side effects that some experience. Discontinued combinations of drugs through a traditional prescription can now be made again. These customized compounds allow us to better serve patients. Even better, many medications can be combined into one treatment: creams, capsules, and more.
What are the Benefits?
PCCA tells us that “compounded prescriptions are ideal for any patient requiring unique dosages and/or delivery devices, which can take the form of solutions, suppositories, sprays, oral rinses, lollipops and even as transdermal sticks. Compounding applications can include: Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy, Veterinary, Hospice, Pediatric, Ophthalmic, Dental, Otic, Dermatology, Medication Flavoring, Chronic Pain Management, Neuropathies, Sports Medicine, Infertility, Wound Therapy, Podiatry and Gastroenterology.” Commonly, we compound topical pain medications, bio-identical hormones, wart and fungal treatment, and veterinary medicine.
Aside from the additional dosage forms, many people swear by the bioidentical hormones that can be compounded. For further reading by a BHRT devotee, pick up Ageless by Suzanne Somers.
