Our compounding pharmacy at the Lake of the Ozarks is dedicated to helping your body achieve and maintain the health it needs for you to lead a healthy, happy life. Keep reading to learn more about some of the distinct advantages that compounding medication offers.
Advantages Of Compounding
1. Your Prescription Is Unique To You
Compounding is more than a medicinal science - it's an art. Standard prescriptions are mass-produced in massive quantities, with little to no thought given to the individual patients who will be taking them. With compounding, on the other hand, each prescription is made specifically for its intended patient. Essentially, compounding fits the medication to the patient (not the other way around).
2. Compounded Medication Causes Fewer Side Effects
Because they are mass-produced with barely any thought given to the unique individuals who will be taking them, standardized prescriptions often cause numerous undesirable side effects. Depending on the specific ingredients used, these side effects can range from slightly annoying to incredibly dangerous. By customizing all medications specifically to each patient's individual needs, our Lake of the Ozarks compounding pharmacy is able to drastically reduce the number of side effects our patients experience.
3. Your Prescription Will Almost Always Remain Available
Massive, multi-million dollar pharmaceutical companies are more concerned with their own profit than they are with the health and well-being of their individual patients. If not enough patients are taking a certain prescription, it becomes unprofitable to continue to mass-produce it and, consequently, it may be taken off the market. Although it may be a smart business decision, it doesn't account for the hundreds of patients who were taking the medication and still in need of it. Fortunately, your Missouri compounding pharmacy may still be able to make the medication you need.
4. Your Prescription Can Come In Several Different Dosage Forms
Maybe your child (or your pet) is sick, but they refuse to take their medicine because they dislike the taste. Maybe you've always had trouble swallowing pills. Maybe the oral pain relievers you're taking are causing unpleasant side effects. When we compound medication, we can make it unique to the patients' needs. Topical pain gels, medicated lollipops, and flavored troches are just a few examples of the different dosage forms we offer.
5. Compounding Pharmacies Are Allergy-Conscious
Standardized medications often contain one or several ingredients that may cause allergic reactions in patients, such as gluten, dyes, preservatives, sugar, and/or lactose. Because they are produced in such huge quantities, the pharmacies cannot accommodate the small percentage of patients who may not be able to take the medication due to allergies. Since compounding pharmacies make all medication unique to each patient, this is rarely (if ever) an issue.
