Dosage Sizes

Custom Dosage Sizes

Traditional pharmacies have set dosage sizes available for every medication they provide. These dosage sizes, however, may not be the best fit for every patient. Our patients do not have to fit into a specific mold. We are able to develop your medication at the specific dosage size required for your treatment. Whether you need a larger or smaller size, our pharmacy can help you stay on your path to a healthy lifestyle.

Benefits of Low Dose Medication

Certain medications in traditional amounts may be too potent for people to see benefits. Low-dose naltrexone is a great example where low doses of a medication can provide benefits. A standard does is 50mg, but when prescribed at 4.5mg naltrexone can help patients with pain and mental health conditions. Ketamine is another medication that benefits from being used in low doses.

Additionally, creating custom dosage sizes is a great strategy for our patients to begin tapering off of their medications. This is most often seen when patients begin to reduce the antidepressant or antianxiety medication. Reducing the dosage size can help lead to a “smoother landing” when working towards discontinuing medications.

Low Doses for Pediatric Patients

Traditional prescriptions are developed for use in adults. This is because drugs may work differently in children. There are many individual characteristics to take into account when prescribing medicine for children. This includes age, weight, and individual health conditions. We work with your doctor to develop the best dosage size for your child, even if it is not available in a traditional pharmacy.

Prescriptions Tailored to Your Needs

Dosage sizes are just one way that we can customize your medication to fit your needs. We can also make your medication into a variety of dosage forms including rapid dissolve tablets (RDTs), troches, creams, and nasal sprays. If you are allergic to any ingredients in your medication, our compounding lab can develop the medicine without the harmful ingredient. The active ingredient responsible for the medicine’s healing properties will remain. Additionally, if you are taking multiple medications, we may be able to combine a number into one unit (troche, capsule, ointment, etc.). This can help save time and reduce hassle when taking a regimen with multiple medications.
