Compounding practices date back to the Egyptians, and in the US before the FDA, State Boards, and pharmaceutical companies compounding was the only way medicine was available.  The pharmacy industry has changes a lot since Penicillin was discovered in 1928.  Add in modern day marketing techniques, and brand promotions, and you have a billion dollar business leading the pharmacy industry into a complete change moving away from compounding practices.

NaturalMed Apothecary –
                   A pharmacy that is focused on you.

So why would an individual need a compounding pharmacy?  Because sometimes medication isn’t a one-size-fits-all approach!  Drug companies don’t see you and your individual specific needs.  We are able to help with:

  • Medication flavoring for children, adults, and even pets!
  • Alternative dosages when strength are not commercially available.
  • Change the route of delivery
  • Eliminate an inactive ingredient that a patient may not be able to tolerate. These could be preservatives, dyes, and fillers.
  • Unavailable drugs when there is a shortage on a medication we are here to help.
  • Customized medications such as Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT), custom topical pain medications, and so much more.
  • Customized Over-The-Counter Supplements, looking for a specific vitamin or herb in a specific dosage or form we can help.
  • Consulting services by pharmacists regarding specific patient issues, custom supplements, and medication counseling.
