Compounding

Bozeman Compounding Pharmacy

Price Rite Drug’s pharmacy is proud to provide Bozeman patients with state-of-the-art compounding services.

Compounding is the art and science of preparing prescriptions crafted especially for the needs of each individual patient, allowing for a more customized medication. Although it has been a practice since hunter-gatherers used different animal and plant products to mix poultices and continued through the 1900s, its uses faded out in the 1960s. Recently, many doctors and pharmacists are realizing once more that medications as they come do not always fit the needs of every patient.

Since our Pharmacy renovation, Price Rite’s Bozeman Compounding facility is already in compliance for 2018 standards, including a negative airflow room with double HEPA filters. All of our pharmacists attended a rigorous week-long training with PCCA (Professional Compounding Centers of America) ensuring every staff member who handles compounding prescriptions is thoroughly trained. We are also the only facility in Bozeman who will work with your insurance provider to ensure your compounded prescriptions continue to be affordable.

Although compound medications are still based on the practitioner’s prescription, because many patients have allergies, trouble swallowing pills, are in need of varying doses that may prevent them from being able to take a medication as advertised, pharmacists are able to remove those unwanted ingredients and have more flexibility adjusting dosage levels. Compounding can offer a solution for human and animal patients both young and elderly.

What is Compounding?

Here are a few ways that compounding can be utilized to improve the heath and life of patients:

Flavoring — Whether a child or pet, adding flavor to an unsavory medication can help ease the stress of consuming.

Hormone therapy — Men and Women have their own unique needs when it comes to hormone levels. Utilizing compounding to match the hormone levels of your body can come as a great relief for some patients.

Pain management — Pain treatment can be treated topically or orally and does can be adjusted according to need. Pharmacists can also remove any ingredients that may cause allergies.

Dental — Anxiety or pain medication can be adapted for easy oral use.
Athletic Injuries — Every injury is different and requires unique care. Lotions with both anti fungal and pain relief can be administered for athletic accidents.

Drug shortages — If for any reason you cannot get ahold of your customary medication, compounding those ingredients into a similar combination can ease the stress of a familiar brand discontinuation.
