What are Compounded Customized Topical Creams & Gels?
Compound medications are made in the USA from only FDA approved ingredients at State licensed pharmacies regulated by the State Boards of Pharmacy. They are not mass produced and are not available at chain drug stores.
- Compounding is the science of preparing personalized medications for patients. Compounded medications are made based on the doctor and pharmacist working together to determine which individual FDA approved ingredients should be mixed together in the exact strength and dosage to customize a medication to meet a patient’s specific needs.
- Compounded Creams & Gels are applied directly to the affected area for maximum results and are non-narcotic and non-addictive.
- Because most Compounded Creams & Gels are applied topically there is minimal systemic absorption and minimal potential side effects as opposed to oral medications which go through the liver and might irritate the digestive system.
