The benefits of compounded medications
Compounded medications offer doctors the flexibility to prescribe the appropriate strength, route of administration and combination of active ingredients. This allows you to determine the optimum approach for each patient.
Compounded medications allow you to:
Prescribe doses that are not commercially available
Avoid an ingredient that the patient cannot tolerate
Convert an oral medication to a topical cream in order to bypass first-pass metabolism
Offer combinations of medications in one vehicle.
Compounding offers a solution when commercially available drugs are not appropriate, or not available. This can improve your patient’s health and enhance your practice. Compounded medications may be used to:
Improve patient compliance
Limit dosage strengths
Expand limited dosage strengths that are commercially available
Expand limited dosage forms that are commercially available
Provide a discontinued drug
Provide a drug that is temporarily unavailable from the manufacturer
