At King Pharmacy & Compounding, we are committed to providing you with medications that meet your unique health needs. Sometimes, patients require medications to be blended in a specific way. This process is referred to as compounding and it is necessary for a variety of reasons, including:
- To change the form of a medication from a pill to a liquid, or gel.
- To prevent an allergic reaction by removing a non-essential ingredient such as dyes, sugar, lactose, or alcohol.
- To provide a specific dosage of a particular ingredient.
- To add flavor to a medication that is otherwise difficult for a patient to ingest.
To learn more about our ability to customize your meds, contact us today at 727-772-6868.
Compounding creates customized formulations that combine multiple active ingredients in the proper strengths and synergistic combinations, all based upon your unique medical needs. This gives you more targeted and effective treatment, and is often more cost effective than commercially available medications.
Other reasons for compounding may be to create a more desirable dosage form, to make a strength otherwise unavailable, or to combine multiple active ingredients into one simple dose. Our fully-equipped compounding lab can create any non-sterile medication for adults, children, and pets.
