Admix Compounding Pharmacy is focused on improving the health and overall wellness of our patients by providing quality compounds tailored to the needs of each individual.
Compounding has been in existence since the beginning of pharmacy and continues to be a great benefit to patients. With modern technology, quality control and expanded research, compounding has become even more advanced and safe.
The FDA states that compounded prescriptions are ethical and legal when prescribed by a licensed practitioner for a specific patient and compounded by a licensed pharmacy. The State Board of Pharmacy regulates compounding pharmacies.
Some insurance plans may reimburse patients with a proper claim form, which can be provided by the pharmacy. While the patient is paying directly for a compounded prescription, there are insurance plans that would cover part or all of the final cost.
Many patients are allergic to preservatives or dyes in commercially available drugs, or are lactose intolerant. A pharmacist can compound prescriptions that are preservative, dye, and lactose-free.
Many dentists find themselves with patients who are resistant to traditional forms of treatment. Lip balm for viral lesions, mouth rinses for ulcers, and "mucosal bandages" to cover ulcerations or infections are just a few of the solutions that may help with unique dental problems. Lollipops for the treatment of thrush or for oral sedation are also commonly prescribed.
Sometimes a large pharmaceutical manufacturer discontinues a medication. Often this happens because not enough patients are taking the drug, so it is unprofitable to keep mass-producing it. But what about the patients who still need that drug?
Hundreds or even thousands of patients still may need that medication. A compounding pharmacist can re-create that medication by compounding it, so even if only one person in the world still needs that medication, they can have it thanks to compounding! If we can obtain the medicine in its chemical form, we can compound the prescription.
Dozens of flavors are available to enhance the taste and color of medication. A compounding pharmacist can also make medicine in a more easily taken or administered dosage form for children who have a difficult time swallowing capsules or tablets.
Compounding is the art and science of creating medication that is personalized for an individual patient. The ability to create custom medication allows compounding pharmacists to help patients with a wide variety of needs. Through a triad relationship between the prescriber, pharmacist, and patient, the three can work together to resolve unique medical issues.
Compounded medications come in various forms depending on the convenience and preference for patients of all age groups:
With the consent of a physician, compounding pharmacists can adjust the strength of a medication, avoid unwanted ingredients, add flavor to a medication, change the dosage form, etc.
Drowsiness, dizziness, and stomach discomfort are common side effects associated with commercially available pain prescriptions. A compounding pharmacist can combine the ingredients of traditional oral pain medications and dispense them in alternative delivery forms such as topical gels, creams, or sprays.
Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy(BHRT) compounds are a natural alternative for those patients who choose not to take conventional hormone replacement. These natural homones are derived from plant-based sources.
There are many ways a compounding pharmacy can work with doctors, nurses, and caregivers to assist the hospice patient. Hospice patients may need several medications that could be combined into one capsule. If the patient is unable to swallow, Admix Compounding Pharmacy can make transdermal medications to be applied topically or troches to be dissolved in the mouth.
