A compounding pharmacy is a specialty pharmacy that supplies people and pets with medicines that are custom-made for them based on a doctor’s prescription. The medicines are usually not available from a regular drugstore and include the following:
•Items that are no longer or never were commercially available
•Different forms of a medication. For example, providing a liquid for a patient who has difficulty swallowing pills
•Different dosages (smaller or larger) as needed for people who metabolize medicines at different rates
•Combinations of two or more drugs compounded into a single capsule (which reduces the number of pills taken on a daily basis and may reduce drug costs)
•Hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) for men and women in the form of creams, capsules, troches (lozenges), etc.
The pharmacy is open Monday through Friday from 9-5 and the phone number is (561) 741-1191 (website is www.palmbeachcompounding.com). I am also a licensed pharmacy technician and have an office right next to the pharmacy. If you have any questions about compounding pharmacy, just give us a call. As always, if you need to retain me for any legal matters, you can reach me at (561) 602-4447 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
