Differences Between Compounding and Retail Pharmacies

When you think of getting a prescription for pain medication, you likely imagine your local retail pharmacy. While it’s true that some individuals take standardized medications to relieve discomfort, many people need something more. If you have trouble taking a certain dosage form or have an allergy that’s found in many prescription drugs, consider visiting a compounding pharmacy. At Custom Dosing Pharmacy, we offer customized treatments that are designed just for you. If you’re searching for individualized solutions for pain, anxiety and sleep troubles, your best bet is to visit our compounding pharmacy. Here’s what makes compounding pharmacies stand out from your typical drug store. 

Individualized Doses of Medication

When you visit a standard retail pharmacy, you’re met with limited options. On the other hand, a compounding pharmacy can create a medication that’s not commercially available. For instance, if you need a specific type of dosage form, such as liquid instead of a pill, we can create something designed for you. Our pharmacists can alter or create medication that’s made for your age, weight and gender, boosting its effects. After all, your health needs are unique. With our team, you’ll find just what you need.

Options Are More Affordable

One of the greatest benefits of visiting a compounding pharmacy is that it’s often more affordable. When you buy standardized sizes of medication, you may receive more than you actually need. A compounding pharmacy can alter doses to fit a specific intake amount, so you can cut unnecessary costs. 

Variety of Services

In addition to medications, compounding pharmacies like ours offer bioidentical hormone therapy, CBD oil and other natural health services. Again, these services are tailored to your individual needs, providing enough options for you to find something that works specifically for you. 

Specialty Drugs for Pets

We offer drugs specifically made for pets. We have a variety of CBD-infused pet chews and more to help your furry friend feel better. 

Close Coordination Between Patient and Pharmacist

Our team is here to serve your needs. At our compounding pharmacy, you can schedule an appointment with a pharmacist who knows you personally. We help our clients get acquainted, and we wish to build lasting relationships as we help them feel better. At our office, you’re treated as an individual rather than just another person who needs medication. We are dedicated to furthering your unique health needs, and in order to do that, we plan regular consultations where you can privately discuss your ongoing physical and mental health needs. It’s that individualized attention that makes our pharmacy stand out from the retail kind.
