When it comes to health and wellness, everyone has different needs. You see it all the time with diets; there’s gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan, sugar-free, and the list goes on. When it comes to your medications, you should have the same ability to pick and choose your dosage and ingredients, just like your diet. We have good news! Thanks to pharmacy compounding, you have a choice; you can receive customized medications tailored to your health and wellness needs.
What Is Pharmacy Compounding?
You know what a pharmacy is, but when you add in the word “compounding,” things may get murky. However, combining these two terms simply refers to the art and science of creating personalized medications for patients based on their needs. Sometimes a patient needs a medication that isn’t commercially available, or if it is, that medication may contain ingredients that don’t support the patient’s health or could cause an allergic reaction.
At Wells Pharmacy Network, we specialize in creating compounded medications for patients so that they don’t have to feel like just another number and don’t have to resign themselves to taking medications that work against their health. Instead, they can take their customized medication with confidence, knowing that everything in their medication, down to the very last ingredient, is formulated with their needs or allergies in mind.
What Are Compounded Medications?
Compounded medications are medications that are customized to the patient’s needs. Essentially, they’re prescription medications prepared directly from the raw, active chemical in the prescribed amount, and requested form, that contain the specific dosage and strength required by the patient. In creating these medications, we are able to eliminate allergens and/or any ingredients as requested by the patient. Compounded medications can be personally customized and prepared in different forms, including:
- ● Most Pellets
- ● Some Injectables
- ● Topical creams
- ● Transdermal gels
- ● Capsules or Tablets
- ● Oral Suspensions/Solutions
For example, if the patient has a dairy or corn allergy and the generic version of the medication they need contains milk or corn by-products, we can recreate that medicine in a dairy-free or corn-free form. We customize the highest quality, nonsterile compounds to meet the needs of patients undergoing treatment for Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT), weight management, and wellness and anti-aging treatments, among others.
Some of our compounded medications may help meet the needs of patients in the following health, wellness, and medical arenas:
- ● Aesthetic dermatology
- ● Weight management
- ● Hormone replacement therapy
- ● IV therapy
- ● Urology
- ● Growth Hormone (anti-aging)
- ● Sexual health
- ● Thyroid and adrenal treatment
- ● Pellet therapy
- ● Testosterone therapy
- ● Veterinary needs
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy
A compounded medication is often used during Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy. During this treatment, patients undergo diagnostic testing to determine a hormone deficiency. The patient and the physician then work together with the pharmacist to choose the right hormone supplementation method and treatment plan. Pellet therapy is one of the most popular methods of BHRT, but each patient requires a different hormone pellet with a unique dosage. That’s where Wells Pharmacy Network comes in.
We create customized sterile pellets that contain the highest quality ingredients prepared and crafted from raw ingredients in the required dosage. We can also prepare injections, creams, and gels that can help patients achieve hormonal balance.
