Compounded prescriptions are becoming more in demand for multiple reasons. The first, and most obvious, has to do with the fact that you can get a medication made specifically for you as the dosages of certain ingredients are adjusted to accommodate you. That’s a great advantage to have but there are others you should know about when visiting a compounding pharmacy. Another advantage to compound pharmacies has to do with supplements. In order to know that you are getting the best quality you want to work with a drug store that knows the ins and outs of each supplement they offer. This not only gives you the confidence in knowing you are getting great quality but it also provides you with a place to go for advice and guidance when making a selection.
Ever try a medication and while it did the trick it also made you feel tired, dizzy or something else you weren’t expecting? That could be because of one single ingredient in the prescription that can be adjusted. Compound prescriptions are adjusted to make them more accommodating to you and your body. For example, you are taking something to treat allergies but the pill makes you feel dizzy. The dizziness could be caused by a single ingredient that can easily be adjusted. If that’s the case, your doctor can put in an order for the dosage to be adjusted by the drug store, not the entire dosage, but that of the single ingredient that is making you feel dizzy. This not only makes things easier on you but it also allows you to adjust the dosage as you are taking it for the long-term.
