Wellness and Weight Loss

Obesity is an epidemic, and the United States is home to the greatest number of obese people in the world. According to the CDC, approximately 33% of adults in America are overweight, and obesity-related deaths have climbed to 300,000 per year. Many practitioners have incorporated weight loss programs into their standard treatment protocols. Please refer to our downloadable referral form for our exclusive formulations.

Compounding

Compounding is the pharmaceutical science of making a medication that is compatible with the needs of an individual patient.

In this day and age most medications are mass produced; that is they are made in bulk by large pharmaceutical companies for thousands of people who at some time may need to have a prescription filled.   In many instances mass produced medications will work just fine for a patient has fallen ill.  However, in some instances a mass produced medication will not work or be tolerated.  Something about the medication is not compatible with a patient’s unique physiological makeup:

  • It could be the strength causing the medication to not be tolerated (too much medication in each dose)
  • It could be the delivery form (your patient can’t swallow pills)
  • It could be an inactive ingredient that causes a side effect (your patient is lactose intolerant and lactose is used as a filler in the mass produced medication)

Compounding allows a specially trained pharmacist to make a medication and a patient (human or animal) compatible. This is done by taking into consideration the patient’s unique needs and symptoms.

A compounding pharmacist uses raw chemicals, powders, liquids, and special equipment to make each medication, one at a time. This results in a customized medication made by a pharmacist, according to a doctor’s directions, to meet an individual patient need.

Choice Specialty Pharmacy – Expanding Physician Treatment Options via Compounding
We can expand your treatment armamentarium by formulating creative, individualized, compounded medications that can improve compliance, maximize the potential for therapeutic success, and reduce the overall cost of pharmaceutical care.  There are many cases where compounding can benefit the patient; here are some of the most common:
  • The patient requires a customized dose of a medication
  • The patient has difficulty taking a medication in its commercially available form
  • The patient needs a medicine that has been discontinued by the manufacturer
  • The patient is allergic to certain agents used to make a medication
Sterile Compounding: A Measure of Our Commitment
Every sterile medication is compounded in our specially designed and constructed clean room.  In this environment our pharmacy’s skilled pharmacists prepare your medications according to the United States Pharmacopeia guidelines, the regulatory standard for the compounding of sterile pharmaceutical preparations.
Maintaining a sterile environment requires a constant, ongoing commitment to quality and safety.  We have undergone rigorous inspections by the State Board of Pharmacy to obtain and maintain our sterile compounding license, accreditations, and certifications. Our regular sterile compounding procedures include:
  • Lab testing of finished products, both in-house and independently
  • Monitoring with environmental microbiology sampling
  • Monitoring the particle count of the sterile environment
  • Routine outside certification of all of our sterile equipment
  • Routine monitoring and updating of our pharmacy staff’s sterile techniques as they relate to the USP guidelines
Bio-identical Hormone Therapy
Biologically Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) utilizes hormones that are bio-identical to what your body produces. An individualized approach to hormone replacement therapy, using BHRT, pinpoints a person’s exact hormone levels, and what hormones are needed to balance their hormone deficiency. The differences between synthetic and biologically identical hormones are in their chemical structures and functionality. BHRT hormones have the same chemical structure as the hormones created naturally in the human body.
