A compounding pharmacy is a specialty pharmacy that can produce drug combinations prescribed by Doctors for patients who cannot use commercially available drugs. At Bay Life, we provide compounded prescription drugs with custom strengths, dosage forms, flavors and much more. We eliminate dyes, preservatives, sugars and other problematic ingredients from our drugs.
- Pharmacists can alter ingredients if you are lactose intolerant, glucose intolerant or are allergic to an unnecessary dye in the commercial drug.
Customised Strength or Dosage:
- They can lessen the dosage level for children or increase it for adults depending on the requirement.
Add a Flavor:
- This can be very helpful for children or pets – they’ll actually want their medicine with their favourite flavors in!
Change the Form of Medication:
- They can modify a pill into a liquid for the ease of taking it.
- Patients can access alternative forms of medication to make digestion easier.
Compounding Pharmacies Build Strong Relationships with Patients:
- The pharmacist and staff are well known and build strong relationships with residents. Moving prescriptions to a compound pharmacy means patients can have a collaborative approach to medicine.
Compounding Pharmacies Can Save You Money:
- Despite the convenience and accessibility of large pharmacies, compound pharmacies are absolutely pocket-friendly. Smaller pharmacies have access to bulk amounts of raw materials.
- Medication can be compounded without expensive dyes or additives that add no value to the patient’s health.
- Compound pharmacies can be less costly than commercial drugs.
- Having access to pure, medical-grade chemicals helps compound pharmacies to produce lower-cost medicines.
Pharmacy Compounding makes Medications Easier to Use and Take:
- .It’s no secret that many medications have an unpleasant taste or can be difficult to swallow. This can often make medications difficult to be taken as prescribed — especially in patients who are notoriously particular about taking medications, including young children, elderly patients, and even pets.
