When you think about compounded medication, what often comes to mind are usually capsules, creams, or gels that you can ger from your local pharmacy in Lake Worth, West Palm Beach. But compounded medicines can also be made in liquid form that can either be swallowed or injected into the body.
Compounding medicines is a process in which medications are prepared with a specific formulation for a particular patient’s medical needs. In other words, it combines, mixes, or alters the ingredients of medication to tailor-fit to the individual needs. This service is usually used when:
- A patient has an adverse or allergic reaction to the inactive ingredients of a medication that is commercially available.
- Elderly or child cannot swallow a tablet or capsule and needs the medicine in liquid dosage form
- The strength, concentration, or dosage of a medication is not commercially available.
This service is offered by Palms Pharmacy, which is a compounding pharmacy in West Palm Beach. We ensure that patients receive the medicines that they need on time and as needed.
