Our pharmacists do more than fill your prescriptions, they take an active role in your care.
In every field of medicine, there are some patients who don't respond to traditional methods of treatment. Perhaps you need medicine at a different strength, a different form of delivery, or even flavor.
In addition to traditional medications, as a compounding pharmacy our specialties include both human and veterinary preparations of medications and vitamins customized for you.
Some of the most common requests for compounded products include:
- Bio-identical Hormone Replacement (BHRT) therapy for women.
Women of all ages experience hormone imbalances, with many changes occurring around the time of menopause. Each woman is different, calling for a unique balance of hormones for many common symptoms of hormone imbalances including hot flashes, decreased sex drive, vaginal dryness, irritability, mood swings, fatigue and many more.
- Bio-identical Hormone Replacement (BHRT) therapy for men.
Similarly to women, men experience symptoms related to diminished hormone levels. A wide range of symptoms may be experienced, often including a noticeable decline in both strength and energy. Other symptoms may include decreased sex drive, thinning hair, fatigue, sleep disturbances, and memory lapses.
- Pain Management Solutions
Acute and chronic pain can be detrimental to daily life. Michelle's Pharmacy is dedicated to finding a solution to your aches and pains. We will work closely with both you and your doctor to determine which medications are best for you. We are able to compound medications into transdermal creams or gels, at strengths that aren't readily available. An advantage of using a transdermal product is the minimization of side effects that are often experienced from
oral medications. By compounding the tropical product, we are customizing the medication to your needs. Some of the pain conditions for which we can compound include arthritis, fibromyalgia, headaches, nerve and muscle pain, post-surgical pain and exercise and sports injuries.
- Veterinary Compounding Services
Many of our beloved pets need medications; however, this tends to be a
dreaded task for many pet owners. Whether your cat is having trouble swallowing a pill, or your dog will only take medication when mixed in with a treat, giving medication isn't always the easiest part of your day. Here at Michelle's Pharmacy we are able to tailor the medication to your pet's needs. We can customize the drug, strength, size, dosage form, and even flavor liquids such as beef and tuna to make medicating your pet a less stressful task!
Additional compounding services include:
