Benefits of Compounding:
We Can Make Medication That Is Difficult to Find or Discontinued
At Siena’s Pharmacy, we can re-create medication that is no longer available by compounding it. That way, you never have to run out of a medication, even if the manufacturer no longer carries it.
We Can Make Medication Allergy-Friendly
At Siena’s Pharmacy, we can create a personalized medication, formulated to give the patient the treatment that they need while leaving out the problematic ingredient.
We Make Medication Easier to Use
Some medications have a very unpleasant flavor, which makes the patient less likely to take it as directed. At Siena’s, we can flavor many medications to make them more palatable without compromising the medication’s effectiveness. This is especially handy when dealing with medications for patients who may refuse medication, such as young children, elderly patients, or even pets!
Some of the flavors that we offer are:
A patient may need their medication in a different dosage form. For instance, patients who have difficulty swallowing a pill may find it easier to take their medication in a pleasantly flavored liquid form. Some medications can be compounded in a topical form such as a cream or a gel that allows the medicine to be absorbed into the bloodstream through the skin.
