The art of preparing medications dates back to the origins of pharmacy. At Blue Ridge Pharmacy, we still practice the time proven art of compounding. This is done with modern variations of the “mortar and pestle” to prepare unique and individualized medications. By working with your physician, compounding allows our pharmacists to customize the strength and dosage form of a medication according to individual needs. This may include preparing a drug that is no longer commercially available, changing a medication from pill to penetrating skin cream, adding flavors, or preparing a dye-free or preservative-free medication. The possibilities are endless. Our pharmacists can formulate almost any kind of medicine and specifically design it just for you, including children’s dosage forms and flavors, capsules and suppositories, hospice formulations, skin preparations, lip balms, medicated lozenges, eye and eardrops, and even inhalation therapies. Ask us how compounded medications may help you.
At Blue Ridge Pharmacy, we understand that your pets are part of the family. Frequently pets require medications that need to be prepared specifically for their size, or in flavors that are more suitable for their tastes. Should your pet need a compounded prescription, be assured that Blue Ridge pharmacists are experts at creating formulations to help your pet live a happy and healthy life.
