What is Medication Compounding?
Medication compounding is the science of creating custom medications to better suit an individual's needs. Our pharmacists have been specially trained to prepare customized medications to meet every patient’s unique need - even your pet's! It is our aim to support and educate our patients and local physicians about the how compounded prescriptions can help. Our compounds can be created in a variety of forms for any number of reasons including:
To create a different or unique strength
To provide a different delivery form (i.e. liquid instead of pill)
To avoid an allergic medication reaction
To improve taste to ensure compliance
As a compounding pharmacy we strive to work with doctors, physicians and veterinarians to meet the health and safety standards. Our expertise varies and it is not limited to compounding specialty medications for: Dermatology, Pediatrics, Podiatry, Veterinary Medicine, Pain Management, Dental Formulations, and discontinued medications.
Your skin is your body's largest — and most visible — organ. But it’s also often an afterthought. When skin issues flare up, don’t put them on the back burner.
Take care of them the right way, right away. From acne and scars to burns and wrinkles, our compounding pharmacist can help you combat a variety of skin conditions with customized solutions in the form that works best and feels best for you.
Commercially-manufactured and readily available medication forms sometimes may not meet the needs of every pet. Each pet is unique and may be sensitive to specific ingredients.
Working together with your veterinarian, we can tailor the medication strength, dosage form and taste to best suit your pets needs.
Compounding for Pain Management
Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN)
Naltrexone, an opiate receptor antagonist, is not a new drug, but when used off label at very low doses, is a drug shown in many trials to be of therapeutic benefit. The 50mg dose of Naltrexone was approved by the FDA in 1984 to treat opioid and alcohol addiction.
In 1985, Bernard Bihari, MD, a physician with a clinical practice in New York City, discovered the effects of a much smaller dose of Naltrexone. When reduced to doses ranging from 0.5mg to 9.0mg daily, it can modulate the immune system and may provide relief to those suffering from autoimmune diseases, chronic pain, mental health challenges, and inflammation.
Over the past ten years, there has been a growing body of evidence that the body’s endorphins (naturally occurring opioids) have a crucial role in regulating the immune system and providing pain relief. LDN’s blockade of opioid receptors has been shown to upregulate endorphin production. LDN’s blockade of Toll Like Receptors is believed to contribute to the anti-inflammatory and immune dampening effects.
These mechanisms help us understand why LDN can be beneficial for so many patients. LDN continues to provide life changing outcomes for many patients. It is available only by prescription and custom made at a compounding pharmacy.
The key to success in using LDN is an understanding that optimal dosing is ultimately patient specific and is not dependent on a set protocol. Dosing strategies can vary tremendously. Some patients find success very quickly, while others need to try a variety of dosing strategies, which may take up to several months to achieve success. Therefore, it is critical to work with a provider or a compounding pharmacy knowledgeable in strategies that can help ensure success with LDN.
Since we began specializing in LDN at WellPharma, we have seen a wide variety of successes. It is these successes that motivate us to continue to try to help other patients.
NOTE: Because LDN is an opioid receptor blocker, caution should be taken when prescribing LDN to patients who are taking opioid-type pain medications such as Morphine, Oxycodone, Hydrocodone, and Fentanyl.
