Compounding

 

Why is Compounding Important?

Palmer's Drug can compound medications for various different reasons.

Unavailable Dose: A need may exist for a patient (or pet) to have a smaller or larger dose than is commercially available. Palmer's can compound different sizes of a dose, so the patient can get the exact dose their physician feels they need.

Unavailable Dosage Form: A need may also exist for a patient to use a liquid, suppository, or other dosage form if they, for example, have difficulty swallowing. Palmer's also has the capability of making a different dosage form for these patients.

Unavailable Medications: Some medications are no longer available from drug companies either because of a shortage or because they no longer manufacture that product. Some patients may respond better to a discontinued medication or a medication that is on shortage. Palmer's may be able to compound these medications as well.

Palatability: Some medications have a bad taste or are only available in one flavor. Palmer's can prepare dosage forms in other flavors to mask an unpleasant taste.

Allergies: Many people have allergies to dyes, binders, flavors, or other excipients used in commercial medications. Palmer's can compound medications that are free of materials that patients may be allergic to.

Combination medications: Some patients may need more than one medication to treat one health problem. Palmer's may be able to compound a single dosage form that contains all the medication that patient needs to treat that problem.

 

 

Palmer's compounds several products, including products for hormone replacement, migraines, wart treatment, and even veterinary medications. Palmer's Drug works with two compounding associations that help with availability of products and formulating of recipes.

 

 

 

Palmer's has two pharmacists working Monday-Saturday. We also have several technicians and interns who offer their services as well.
