1: The Cancer Patient
Eric is a cancer patient who is having difficulty swallowing large pills. Through compounding, his medication is made into smaller capsules and lozenges. Eric is able to take all his medication and can focus on his recovery instead of the anxiety of swallowing big pills!
2: The Sensitive Child
Rosemary is an 8-year-old child who requires medication. Rosemary is very sensitive to artificial sweeteners, dyes, preservatives and fillers. Through compounding, the purest form of the medication is made into a liquid suspension with natural flavour and sweeteners without any fillers or preservatives. Rosemary is able to take her medications without reacting to the extra ingredients!
3: The Menopausal Woman
Maria is a 46-year-old woman suffering from hot flashes and other peri-menopausal symptoms. She knows that her hormones need balancing but does not want to take oral estrogen. Through compounding, a specifically tailored bio-identical hormone cream is formulated for Maria and she can change the amount she uses according to her blood work!
4: The Grumpy Husband
Ted is a middle-aged man who once was a hard working and hard playing husband. Now Ted is tired and sits on the couch watching old TV show re-runs. What happened to Ted? Men go through a hormone decline as well and low testosterone levels can lead to lethargy even depression. Ted’s low testosterone levels were rebalanced with a daily application of topical compounded testosterone cream. Ted’s energy level improved and he is back to his normal happy self!
5: The DogPoochie is a 14-year-old cocker spaniel that has been prescribed medication by their veterinarian. Poochie refuses to eat the bitter tasting pills.
