How Our Compounding Pharmacy Works
Pharmacy compounding is the science, and also art, of combining medications to produce optimal outcomes for patients. While mass-manufactured drugs with pre-formed doses in capsules and tablets are adequate for some people, many patients see much better results from medications when they are compounded specifically for their needs. We compound medications so that they have:
- Appropriate strength
- Correct dosage
- Nothing that causes allergies or sensitivities
- Acceptable flavor
One of the biggest advantages of compounding pharmaceuticals is that there are endless possibilities. We can create suspensions, suppositories, solutions and creams. We combine traditional pharmaceutical techniques with modern technology to create medications that maximize positive results while minimizing side effects. We’ll work closely with you and your doctor to find just the right solution to your particular ailments.
Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT)
Our compounding pharmacists work together with patients and their doctors to provide customized hormone replacement therapy that provides the needed hormones in the most appropriate strength and dosage form to meet each patient’s specific needs.
Hormone replacement therapy should be initiated carefully after a patient’s medical and family history has been reviewed. Every person is unique and will respond to therapy in his or her own way. Close monitoring and medication adjustments are essential.
Sunlife Pharmacy specializes in preparing customized pain management systems to meet patient needs.
Whether you suffer from arthritis, neuropathic pain, or cancer pain, we can compound a medication to assist you and your physician in developing a pain management program tailored to your specific needs with the least possible side effects.
Compounded pain medications are available by prescription in many different dosage forms.
Our pets can benefit from custom compounding. Compounding allows the pet to receive the medication in a strength or dosage form that meets each animal’s specific needs. It is not unusual in the veterinary compounding field for doctors to prescribe medication that is commercially hard to find or discontinued. These medications can be made as topical applications, liquids, capsules, or suppositories. Veterinary medications are available in several different flavors such as bacon and various fruit flavors.
Sunlife Pharmacy is a compounding pharmacy dedicated to the formulation of customized medication to suit individual needs.
