How Compounding Pharmacies Help the Elderly
Americans of all ages require prescriptions to live healthy lives, but our elderly loved ones typically rely on several prescriptions to maintain a certain level of wellness and comfort. While many seniors can find their medications relatively easily, sometimes necessary medications aren’t available in the appropriate dosages or a usable form. Some patients may struggle with taking large pills or multiple forms of medication, and The Compounding Pharmacy of American can help.
An Online Pharmacy That Is Friendly and Easy For Seniors
As we age, certain things we used to take for granted can become challenging. Swallowing pills can become difficult, or some forms of medication can be hard on delicate stomachs. Certain drugs on which the elderly have come to rely can become unavailable due to back-ordering or manufacturing issues. In these situations, a compounding pharmacy can be a life-saver. We can produce drugs in a liquid form for easier ingesting to prevent an upset stomach. Medications can be combined when necessary, and they can be delivered to the doors of those who can’t drive to a pharmacy for pick-up. At The Compounding Pharmacy of America, we even have some drugs that are hard to obtain at traditional pharmacies.
The average life expectancy continues to increase, more and more elderly patients find themselves in need of prescription medications. As demand has grown, many “niche” pharmacies have surfaced to provide specific patient types with exactly what they need. Niche pharmacies exclusively serve children who require pediatric prescriptions or elderly individuals. Niche pharmacies can be a great option for some seniors, yet they are still relatively few and far between, and many elderly patients may not have easy access to one. For these individuals, The Compounding Pharmacy of America can ship their prescriptions right to their front doors.

Customized Medicine for Anyone
Some medications are manufactured in precise dosages. While these dosage sizes might work for some patients, some medications can interfere with other medications or have properties that also affect how other drugs react in the body. Take this information into consideration, because a customized compounded medication may solve these issues.
Elderly patients don’t have to worry about troublesome drug combinations or cutting pills anymore. The Compounding Pharmacy of America can create compounds of prescriptions or topical creams so patients can get the medicines they need in exactly the right size and form.
