What is Compounding?

Women’s Health

Are you in need of a customized dose of thyroid medication? Are you a breastfeeding mom and in need of all-purpose nipple ointment? Maybe you are going through menopause and are looking for Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) or to relieve some of the symptoms associated with menopause such as vaginal dryness or a decrease in libido. We offer a variety of compounds geared toward women’s health including boric acid vaginal suppositories used in the treatment of yeast infections, and creams for helping with vulvodynia.

Pediatrics

If your child is prescribed a tablet or capsule but cannot swallow it, we may be able to make the medication into a liquid. Typically, these can be flavored as well making it even easier for kids to take. We also compound different formulations of butt paste (including one over the counter) to help combat diaper rash.

Wound Care

We compound many custom antibiotic/anti-infective topical combinations for painful or infected wounds along with debriding formulations.

 Veterinary

We make medications into liquids for animals and have a variety of flavors such as chicken, liver, beef, fish, banana, and apple. If a capsule is necessary we offer beef flavored capsules. Our topical creams are also very popular and provide an easy alternative to oral products since the medication is delivered right through the skin! Some of the formulations we compound can be helpful with conditions such as seizures, behavioral issues, urinary incontinence, dermatitis, ear infections, and dry eyes just to name a few.

 Men’s Health

In need of testosterone replacement therapy? We compound different strengths for easy topical application. We can also customize thyroid doses to get the exact amounts required specific to your needs. In addition, we compound products used in the treatment of nail fungi and hair loss.

Pain Management

We compound many topical pain creams with a variety of ingredients that may provide relief while also lessening side effects and interactions that these medications often have when given orally. We can target arthritis/joint pain, inflammation, neuropathic pain, and muscle spasms. Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN) has recently gained a lot of popularity and we offer different strengths of this as well.

Oral/Dental Care

We have formulations designed to target cold sores, dry mouth, dry socket, Temporomandibular Joint Disorders (TMJ), and burning mouth syndrome. We compound many products for dental care, including tranexamic acid when the need to prevent blood loss arises.

Dermatology

Dermatologic conditions can sometimes be resistant to commercial treatment. We compound many formulations geared to specific conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, warts, molluscum, warts, shingles, cold sores, nail fungus, and scars. We can also compound formulations for severe itching due to dialysis and renal/hepatic failure.
