There are many reasons why someone would want to choose a customized medication. Sometimes a child or elderly person may have a difficult time swallowing pills because they are too large. Perhaps the pills are chalky and because of that the patient refuses to take the medication as prescribed. Rather than have the patient try to crush the tablet and dissolve it in water which is very nasty, we can compound the medication into a different form such as a liquid, capsule or maybe even a cream. Ask us how we can make a hard to swallow pill much easier to swallow.

Have you ever had your doctor give you a prescription for a medication and the directions said to take half or a quarter of a tablet twice a day? Have you wondered how in the world willI cut this tablet in half? What if I cut it and it crumbles? Or maybe the doctor writes a prescription for a medication and wants you to take 2-3 tablets twice a day. The doctor writes it this way because the amount he wants you to have doesnâ€™t come in the strength he wants you to take. But rather than cut pills in half or double up on pills, yo u c a n n ow h ave t h e pharmacist make the medication in the exact strength you need. This saves you time and money! Ask the phar macist how we can customize a medication for your needs.
Suppose your doctor just wrote a prescription for a medication that had yellow dye #6 in it and you are allergic to it. It may be the only medicine that you can take for your condition but this dye could cause major problems if ingested. So what do you do? You bring in your prescription to us and we will make custom medication for you without the yellow dye #6. Thatâ€™s right. We can make a medication and leave out a chemical that you may be allergic to such as a dye, lactose or sugar. Ask us how we can make a medication for you that wont cause an allergic reaction.
