Medications may become unavailable for a variety of reasons, the most common being:
- Back-ordered due to a manufacturing problem
- Discontinued due to decreased usage or declining manufacturer profits, which may be related to the introduction of a newer drug
Drugs may also be withdrawn from the market due to health risks, and we do not compound medications that were discontinued due to safety concerns.
Our professional pharmacists can help by obtaining the Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient (API) and compounding the needed drug in the most appropriate way for each patient. We can also compound medications that are free of problem-causing additives such as sugar, alcohol, preservatives, dyes, and gluten. We utilize the finest FDA approved chemicals, follow current USP guidelines, and are licensed and regulated by our State Board of Pharmacy.
