Medicap Pharmacy is a Compounding Pharmacy!

What is a Compounding Pharmacy?


Millions of Americans have unique health care needs that off-the-shelf prescription medications cannot meet.  For them, personalized medication solutions—mixed safely by trained, licensed pharmacists—are the only option to achieve the desired health care outcome.  Compounding medications is the act of making, mixing, and customizing medications like druggists did in days of old before many medications were mass produced and made commercially.  A physician or practitioner may prescribe a compounded medication for a patient to accommodate an unusual health need or to tailor a dose or a form of a medication.

Compounding

Examples of prevalent compounded medications are as follows:
 - Customized strengths and forms of bio-identical hormone supplementation
 - Requiring limited dosage strengths, such as a very small dose for infants
 - Requiring a different formulation, such as turning a drug, only available as a tablet or capsule, into a liquid or a transdermal (absorbed through the skin) cream/gel for one who cannot swallow a tablet or capsule
 - Requiring an allergen-free medication, such as one without gluten or colored dyes
 - Off strengths or in between strengths of drugs
 - Absorb or excrete medications abnormally
 - Need a drug that has been discontinued by pharmaceutical manufacturers because of low profitability or low demand
 - A supply shortage of their normal drug
 - Children who want or need flavored additives in liquid  and compounded drugs to improve taste to get the medication down
 - Veterinary medicine, for a change in dose, change to a more easily-administered form (such as from a pill to a liquid or transdermal gel), or to add a flavor more palatable to the animal into a liquid or into an animal treat laced with the medication
