Pain Compounding

Pain is the most common symptom for which individuals seek medical help. Whether it's short-lived or chronic, physical or neuropathic, living with pain shouldn't be something you have to accept. Because patients vary in size, symptom, and pain tolerance, and the pain itself varies in location and degree, it's important that treatment varies, too.​ Compounding provides that needed tailored treatment.

​​Studies show that some commercially manufactured pain medications can be habit forming and may have negative side effects, such as drowsiness, dizziness, and stomach irritation. When compounding, we can keep that in mind and work to minimize those effects.​

Compounding offers an alternative to traditional oral medications by formulating relief through high concentrations of localized topical treatment. Because the solution is being delivered exactly where the pain is, it has the potential to cut down on the amount of medication needed and reduce side effects normally experienced with oral options.

While mass-produced medications suffice for some, there are others that require out-of-the-box solutions. Compounding is a great way to meet your unique health needs! 

Whether you have allergies to certain ingredients in your medication, need a different dosage form or strength, or simply want to experience the difference customization can make, we can compound your medications for your specific needs.



Hormone Replacement Therapy

Millions of people from every age and background, experience some form of hormonal imbalance during their lifetime. Unbalanced hormones can affect more than just your mood; they can cause a host of unpleasant symptoms, including:

  • Weight Gain

  • Hot Flashes

  • Low Libido

  • Painful Intercourse

  • Infertility

  • Low Energy

  • Night Sweats

  • Irregular Menstruation

  • Anxiety

  • And More​

Every person’s body and their individual hormonal makeup is different, and each requires a unique balance of hormones. Our team can use hormones that match what your body makes naturally, increasing effectiveness of treatment. We will work with you and your healthcare provider to determine the hormone amount, dosage form, and medication strength that works best for you.

Pediatric Compounding

Is it always a fight at med time? You’re not alone. Kids refuse to take their meds for all kinds of reasons: color, texture, or even just because they know it’s medicine. They don’t feel well, and bad-tasting or hard-to-swallow medicine makes everything worse.

That fight makes med time a battle that’s hard to win, and it sometimes means that kids fall behind on their medication regimen and don’t feel better as quickly as they should. But it doesn’t have to be that way. While there’s no guarantee that taking medicine ever will become an entirely pleasurable event, there are some ways to help.

Children are especially suited for custom compounded prescriptions. For various reasons, commercially manufactured drug forms sometimes may not meet the needs of every child. Working closely with us, your child’s pediatrician can prescribe medications for:

  • Pain relief

  • Respiratory disorders

  • Oral thrush

  • Diabetes

  • Head lice

  • Diaper rash

  • Skin disorders

  • Cold sores / fever blisters

  • and more!

From flavored medicine to unique dosage forms, customized strengths, and ingredients—our compounding solutions put the "mmm" in medicine!

Pet Compounding

We love our pets and would do anything to keep them healthy and happy for as long as possible. But have you ever tried to get a reluctant cat to swallow a pill? Or watched a dog lick the peanut butter off the capsule you had carefully hidden inside it, then spit it back out?


No more! Turn something YOU hate into something THEY crave by getting the medication compounded to fit your pet’s unique needs. With compounded pet medications, we can:

  • Improve taste

  • Alter medication strength

  • Alter delivery form

  • Prepare discontinued formulas

Some mass produced medications are simply not fit for your pet. Most commercially available medications are formulated based on averages that may not represent your pet. Just like people, your pet may be particular with the form of medication they are willing to take. Turn med time into treat time and ask us about veterinary compounding!
