Wall's Health Mart Pharmacy is a member of Professional Compounding Centers of America. The latest in customized prescriptions is available to meet patient's unique needs.
Compounding is the preparation of a customized medication used to solve a patient's problem by meeting his or her specific prescription needs. Compounding pharmacists work together with both prescribers and their patients in order to develop the most appropriate therapy for each person.
Our compounding laboratory contains specialized equipment not found in ordinary pharmacies. Compounding pharmacists must undergo extensive training in modern compounding techniques and attend continuing education seminars regularly.
Compounding allows a pharmacist to customize medications into a variety of different dosage forms, strengths, and flavors. Patients who may have difficulty swallowing may prefer lozenges or chewable items. Here are some more examples of how our compounding pharmacists can help you.
We can compound a variety of different dosage forms, such as:
- lip balms
- nasal sprays
- chewable "gummy treats"
- freezer pops
These specialized dosage forms will help ensure that you receive your medication in the most convenient form possible.
When a patient has a problem that does not respond to commercially available medications, or if side effects are unacceptable, our compounding professionals can help. Countless therapeutic possibilities exist when each medication can be customized to meet the needs of a specific patient, and patients and prescribers are not limited to commercially available preperation. We may be able to solve a patient's problem by using pure pharmaceutical grade chemicals to compound the needed medication(s) in the best strength and dosage form for a specific patient. For example, research shows that non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, which are commonly used to treat arthritis and other painful conditions, are effective and have fewer side effects when they are properly formulated as a transdermal gel and applied topically directly to the affected area (compared to oral administration).
We offered solutions to problems-by compounding specialized medications, which meet the unique needs of each animal-pets, exotics, horses or zoo animals.
Flavored medication-trying to administer medication to an animal is not always easy. We prepare medications in easy-to-give flavored dosage forms that animals devour. Tuna for cats, liver for dogs, banana or tutti fruitti for exotics-you name it, we can compound it!
Medicine in ideal size, strength, and dosage form- commercial animals medications may be available in only one size or strength. For example, a tablet may be too large to give to a cat, but an excessive amount may be needed for a horse. We can create a preparation, which contains the most appropriate dosage for a specific animal. We make medicine much easier to administer and often more economical. We can compound numerous dosage forms that are just right for specific animals-from medicated chewable "treats” to liquid concentrates, from eardrops to dusting powders. The active ingredients can usually be administered by various routes (oral transdermal, otic, etc.).
