Why Use Compounded Medication?

Do you Have Any of the Following Problems?

  • Stomach upset when taking oral medication
  • Reluctance to take the medication due to its taste
  • Difficulty swallowing pills
  • Requiring a different dose of medication than that which is available from a manufacturer
  • Patients who don’t want to take medication at all, especially children or pets

At Siena’s Pharmacy, we will work hard to provide solutions for challenges such as these. After a detailed consultation with our pharmacist, we will have an understanding of what medication options that we can compound for you in order to achieve the best possible results. Compounding provides endless options that traditional medication simply can’t offer, and often produces better results.

Benefits of Compounding:

We Can Make Medication That Is Difficult to Find or Discontinued

Sometimes a large pharmaceutical manufacturer discontinues a medication. Often this happens because not enough patients are taking the drug, so it is unprofitable to keep mass-producing it. But what about the patients who still need that drug? Hundreds or even thousands of patients still may need that medication and no longer have access to it.

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

A patient may be allergic to or intolerant of an ingredient commonly found in the commercially manufactured form of a medication. Ingredients that may be allergy-inducing include:
Lactose
Preservatives
Dyes
Gluten
Sugar
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 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:
Strawberry
Raspberry
Blueberry
Banana
Coconut
Pineapple
Grape

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.
