Tormed Pharmacy compounding can help your doctors meet your special needs. Our pharmacy can prepare medication in custom dosage forms, including capsules, liquids, troches and lozenges, topical gels, creams, foams, suppositories, drops, sprays, and sterile injections. Below is a summary of dosage forms that your doctor can consider for your unique needs.
Flavoring, Liquids, Lollipops, and Troches: Some patients may not respond well to conventional ways of taking medicine. Flavoring is available for oral medication to help with taking medicine. Tormed Pharmacy can even prepare lollipops and infant pacifiers that come in child-proof packaging. Troches are placed under the tongue and absorb quickly into the bloodstream. When a patient has trouble swallowing tablets and capsules, Tormed Pharmacy can compound oral liquids with flavoring for easy administration.
Topical Preparations: Tormed Pharmacy can produce gels, creams, lotions, foams, sprays, and balms for topical applications. These are widely used because they allow the medication to be absorbed directly through the skin to avoid gastrointestinal irritation. Topical medications are ideal for pain management and inflammation.
Capsules: Patients come in different sizes and have varying symptoms and tolerances to medicine. Commercial medications may not address these specific needs. Tormed Pharmacy and your doctor can customize capsules to best match your needs. Multiple medications can be combined into single, easy-to-take capsules. In addition to alternate strengths, patients with allergies and sensitivities can have medications formulated without dyes, preservatives, or gluten. Vegetarians have the option of capsules made from cellulose instead of gelatin. Tormed Pharmacy can help your doctor with custom capsules for your needs.
Suppositories: For local conditions such as hemorrhoids or for patients that cannot take oral medication, Tormed Pharmacy can compound a variety of suppositories. Various shapes are available for different routes of administration. Suppositories are also an option for controlling nausea with bio-identical hormone replacement therapy.
