Tradition can be better than its modern counterpart, as counter intuitive as it may seem. But that is the idea behind compounded preparations. Prior to the advent of commercial manufacturing apothecaries and chemists treated each patient’s unique medical needs. The personal approach was set aside as modern pharma grew the ability to mass produce millions of identical medications. A one-size-fits-all approach may work in some cases but it is not the best practice for every person, or every situation.
A bright spot in modern healthcare, medical compounding creates a specific and individual medication for each person to his or her body’s specific requirements.
Dougherty’s sterile and non-sterile compounding labs are state of the art facilities where we prepare a full array of custom medications such as transdermal creams, flavored medications for children (and pets!), and bio-identical hormone treatments, using a person’s own body to formulate a tailor-made treatment. Ask your healthcare provider if a compounded preparation form might be for you or your loved ones. Unlike competing compounding pharmacies Dougherty’s accepts most prescription health insurance plans.
