Pharmacy compounding is the art and science of preparing personalized medications for patients. We use the finest pharmaceutical grade chemicals to compound medications in various doses and dosage forms that are not commercially available. Customized prescription compounding offers the physician flexibility to select the best medications and prescribe the most appropriate strength and dosage form for administration via the most desirable route for a particular patient. Pharmaceutical companies may discontinue dosage forms, strength, or medications may be temporarily unavailable, but these medications may still be useful for many patients. At Transcript Pharmacy, we want to help provide the best solution of care that is possible for every patient by precisely compounding medication to that specific patient needs.
Alternative Medication Dosage Forms
Compounding enables prescribers and pharmacists to meet the special needs of patients. One of its most important benefits is to those patients who have difficulties with commercially available medication. With the prescriber’s authorization, pharmacists can custom-prepare medications in a variety of unique dosage forms, including:
- Oral liquids
- Custom flavoring
- Troches or lollipops
- Topical preparations
- Eye and Ear Drops
- Nasal sprays
Preservatives, Dye, Sugar or Lactose Free
Some patient may be allergic to a dye, lactose, or other excipient found in commercial products. Elixirs, syrups and suspensions may contain preservatives such as alcohol, which may be problematic, or sugar that makes the medication undesirable. We can compound medication without the problem causing additives, sugar-free, and preservative-free.
