Why have Compounding Pharmacies gained so much importance in the medical field?

Sterile Compounding pharmacies create, or “compound”, a product according to the specific needs of a patient. Some might wonder why this would be important. Some people are allergic to specific ingredients in a drug, but the other ingredients would be beneficial. Sometimes there is no medically comparable form of medicine with the desired ingredients removed. Removing the component of a drug to which a person is sensitive can prevent future negative reactions from the medication. In addition, this can prevent the patient from being left untreated due to the lack of alternative medication.sterile compounding drugs

A sterile pharmacy could also provide other types of benefits such as being able to add flavors to medications. In this way, they will be easier to consume for patients who do not tolerate some bitter tastes, typical of some medicines. A sterile pharmacy could also switch from liquid state medication to pill form, suspension or vice versa, based on a patient’s needs

In essence, a compound pharmacy is able to provide personalized medications based on the specific requirements of a patient.

Why would you use a compound pharmacy?

There are various reasons to ask for a compounded medication. Some of these range from concerns about a patient’s allergies to a custom chemotherapy formulation. In compound pharmacies, the staff follows very particular guidelines that are aimed at keeping the environment clean and safe. Here are some things to look for when you are trying to find a compounding pharmacy near you.

The sterile composition process begins with a consultation with the physician. The doctor talks to the pharmacists regarding the medication and the specific case of the patient to make it easy for the pharmacists to come up with an appropriate formula. In addition to the biologically active ingredients, the pharmacist also has to take into consideration what needs to be used as a support and cushioning. A case in point involves an ointment where a cream is required to carry the drug, while in an oral drug, it may be required that a protective coating is used to guard the stomach. A compounding pharmacy may use technicians or pharmacists to prepare medicines. In all these cases, they will work in a sterile environment. Protective equipment will be available to guard against contamination, and it is common to work under a ventilation hood.
