Your Compounding Update:
Several medications are still unavailable commerically. Gary may be the solution if your medication is not available. Don't forget that a lot of medications can be put into alternative forms - transdermal gels for absorption thru skin rather than stomach, suppository, liquids, or capsule to name a few. We can leave out offending elements - lactose, food coloring or preservatives. Give us a call - we're here to help.
Recently, an item on television talked about patient compliance with correctly taking medications. The doctor on television stated he, his nurse, and receptionist each went over directions concerning medications prior to the patient leaving the office. When filling a prescription, directions are on the bottle and the pharmacist goes over these directions again. This may seem like overkill to the patient, however a large percentage of patients don't take medications correctly. This results in further expenses to patients in the way of more doctor visits, more prescriptions, further illness and possible hospitalization. Worse case scenario - death. A lot of medications need to be taken until all gone - not until you feel better - the illness isn't gone and will come back stronger than ever. Some medicines need to be taken with meals - due to stomach upset or better absorption. These are a few of the reasons following directions is important. The doctor can write a dozen of prescriptions and the pharmacist can fill them for you, however the patient needs to take them correctly to achieve the desired end result - good health. The triad - doctor, pharmacist, patient - all have the best interest of the patient at heart. Good health to you!
