Compounding

Customized prescription compounding offers the doctor flexibility to select the best medication and prescribe the most appropriate strength and dosage form for administration via the most desirable route for a particular patient. Medications are manufactured in a limited number of strengths and dosage forms due to stability concerns and the cost of stocking and distributing numerous formulations of each drug. Commercially available drugs will satisfy the needs of most patients, but are not the optimal preparation to meet the needs of many patients. Using pharmaceutical grade chemicals are specialized equipment not found in most pharmacies, we can compound medications in doses and dosage forms that are not commercially available. Pharmaceutical companies may discontinue dosage forms for which there is limited demand, or medications may be temporarily unavailable, but these medications may still be useful for many patients. We want to help you to provide the best care that is possible for every patient. 
We can compound the needed medication in a variety of dosage forms such as:
Transdermal or topical creams, lotions, gels and solutions. 
Oral capsules, and suspensions 
Vaginal creams, capsules, and suppositories 
Rectal suppositories. 
The dose of medication that is commercially available may not be precisely what a specific patient needs. Wouldn’t it be great to be able to prescribe the right amount of drug to treat the problem, without causing unnecessary side effects or the patient needing to break or crush tablets or take multiple capsules? Sugar , Preservatives, Dye, or Lactose Free.
Elixirs, syrups, and suspensions may contain preservatives such as alcohol which may be problematic, or sugar which makes the medication undesirable. We can compound sugar-free and preservative-free dosage forms. If a patient is allergic to a dye, lactose, or other excipient, we can compound the medication without the problem causing additives.

Flavored To Please

We flavor medications to make them more patient friendly and improve compliance. Downtown Pharmacy has an extensive assortment of flavors. Who said medication has to taste bad.
