Medicine is not always one size fits all. Sometimes, the medications that are commercially available don’t fit your needs. That’s when compounding comes into play. Here at Phipps Pharmacy, we offer a number of compounding services that can be life-changing and even lifesaving. Here are just a few of the ways our compounding pharmacy can help improve your health and well-being.

1. Customized Medication Solutions

One way our compounding pharmacy can help improve your health is by providing customized medication solutions. Through compounding we can create tailor-made personalized medications. If a mass-produced drug isn’t able to meet your needs, we can compound a drug to fit exactly what you need. That may include a different strength or form than the commercially available medication, or one without an allergen or additive to which you may have had a negative reaction in the past. We make it possible for you to get the medication you need without worrying about allergic reactions or finding a way to take hard-to-swallow pills.

2. Dermatology Solutions

Another way our compounding pharmacy can improve your health is by providing dermatology solutions. Our compounding experts can work with your dermatologist or medical provider to create a dermatology medication made to your specific needs. These medications can help heal skin conditions such as acne, dermatitis, eczema, psoriasis, scarring, and others. Because your skin is unique, it will react best to a medication created for its exact specifications. These compounded medications can help heal and diminish the appearance of dermatology issues to help you feel healthier and more confident in your skin. These medications may be compounded in the form of creams, ointments, pills, etc., per your doctor’s request and your unique needs.

3. Hormone Replacement Therapy

One of the unique ways our compounding pharmacy can help improve your health is with customized hormone replacement therapy. Hormone levels often change with age, and these changes can come with a variety of unpleasant symptoms. You may experience fatigue, mood and memory issues, loss of libido, trouble sleeping, weight gain, and other symptoms. Because everyone experiences hormone changes differently, hormone therapies shouldn’t be a one-size-fits-all solution. Here at Phipps Pharmacy, we work closely with you and your medical provider to find your optimal hormone replacement therapy solution and then tailor your medications to meet your specific needs.

4. Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN)

Low Dose Naltrexone, or LDN, is a therapy that has recently gained popularity and is useful in lowering hyperactive inflammatory responses. LDN has unique properties that raise levels of endorphins in your body, which can cause a decrease in the body’s inflammatory response. This is an individualized therapy, which means we will work with you and your medical provider to put together a plan made just for you. You may benefit from LDN if you struggle with inflammatory conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome, fibromyalgia, neuropathy, itching, and many others. Improving the symptoms of these conditions is another way our compounding pharmacy can help improve your health and quality of life.
