Professional and Customized Medication
Brown’s Pharmacy provides access to a full range of medication compounding services. Whether your needs are for sterile, non-sterile, or physician office-use products.
We can provide the expertise and access to the patient-specific formulations that you require. Most non-sterile formulations are made specifically for you, in-house, and can normally be completed within a 24 hour time window.
Examples of our non-sterile compounds include, but are not limited to, bio-identical hormone replacement therapy for men and women, topical pain formulations, veterinary products, children size doses, skin care, wound care and thyroid formulations.
A compounded medication is a drug that is specifically prepared for you, based on a prescription from your doctor. Your pharmacist will mix different ingredients together to create an individualized medication for you, in a specific strength and dosage form.
Compounded medications are ordered by a licensed physician, veterinarian or other prescriber, and must be mixed in a safe and carefully controlled environment by a licensed compounding pharmacist and pharmacy technician.
There are numerous benefits associated with compounding. Many of the benefits focus on providing patients with pharmaceutical products that have been customized to fit their own unique needs. Compounding is often required for medical reasons; some patients require a particular non-essential ingredient to be removed from their medication to prevent an allergic reaction. Others require compounded medication to acquire an exact dosage amount that is unique to their own personal needs and which may not be available in the available marketed drugs.
Often times, patients will need their medications in a different form. For example, if an elderly or pediatric patient has difficulty taking their medication in capsule form; a compounding pharmacist can provide the same medication in a cream base form to allow the patient to apply the medication topically, or in a syrup or solution form for easier administration. Pharmaceutical compounding is also used to change the taste and color of medications to make it more palatable and aesthetically appealing to patients, especially with children and even animals.
