Compounding is the mixing of drugs by a pharmacist to fit the unique needs of a patient. This may be done for medically necessary reasons, such as to change the form of the medication from a solid pill to a liquid, to avoid a non-essential ingredient that the patient is allergic to, or to obtain the exact dose needed. It may also be done for voluntary reasons, such as adding favorite flavors to a medication.
One area that most may not think of compounding as valuable is the practice of Otolaryngology. However, there are many benefits that Quality Compounding can offer these patients. Whether it's an otic anti-fungal compound or a simple saline rinse, Quality Compounding is here to help your patients. Here are some areas we can help:
Quality Compounding and Specialty Rx understands the difficulty in caring for Hospice and Long Term care patients. Our commitment is to make this process easier for caregivers and as comfortable as possible for patients. Whether it's altering delivery systems for those patients that have trouble swallowing or supplying ointment for beds sores and adult diaper rash, Quality compounding can customize medications for a patient's specific needs. Some examples are:
Quality compounding and Specialty Rx is capable of providing a multitude of services for animals. We can flavor medication for animals like tuna for cats or beef for dogs. We can make certain medications into “treats.” These treats look, smell and feel like store-bought treats.
Flavoring isn’t the only thing we do at Quality Compounding. We can compound a medication that may no longer be on the market. Just because a medication is no longer commercially available doesn’t mean it can’t continue to be beneficial. We can also compound human medications for animal use. We can put that medication in a better suited delivery system for your specific animal.
If an owner is looking to save money we can combine multiple medications into one, provided that these medications warrant the same delivery system. (More than one topical medication for instance)
At Quality Compounding we specialize in all animals from domestic to zoo!
Quality Compounding and Specialty Rx can make a wide variety of medications for skin treatment and health. We are committed to producing the best dermatological compounds. Our dermatological products cover, but are not limited to:
Mitomycin is an antitumor antibiotic used specifically in the treatment of cancer. Mitomycin is an intravenous (IV) medicine that interferes with the multiplication of cancer cells. The type and extent of a cancer determines the exact dose and schedule for this medicine. To prevent bladder cancer from recurring, mitomycin is given through a urinary catheter directly into the bladder (intravesically) rather than intravenously.
Quality compounding and Specialty Rx can prepare mitomycin in our certified clean room ready for use. This can eliminate your need to dilute it and eliminate waste. We deliver the ready-to-use medication right to you!
Avastin™ (bevacizumab) is being used by retinal specialists (as an off-label use) in the treatment of wet macular degeneration. Wet macular degeneration or wet AMD is a serious, vision-threatening condition. In wet AMD abnormal blood vessels behind the retina start to grow in the area of the retina known as the macula. These blood vessels leak blood and fluid causing damage to the macula and loss of vision. Studies have shown Avastin™ (bevacizumab) to benefit wet macular degeneration patients
