Pharmaceutical Dosage Forms
One of the best capabilities of a compounding pharmacy is the ability to change the dosage form of medications. If a patient is unable to take, has not responded to, or experienced adverse effects from commercially available medications, numerous options exist. We can compound the needed drugs into different dosage forms, such as cosmetically appealing creams, ointments, transdermal gels, topical sprays and powders, or troches. We can place the needed medication into the dosage form or base which is most suitable to treat a specific problem. For example, a lollipop can be just perfect for keeping an antibiotic or antifungal in contact with an infected area in the mouth.
