Compounding for urology and urogynecology is the preparation of customized medications for conditions affecting the urinary tract, reproductive systems in men, as well as vulvar pain, pelvic floor disorders, and other issues that may affect women. For many of these conditions, medications that are found on the market may not meet the unique needs of every individual patient. Fortunately, your compounding pharmacist can prepare medications in a variety of different formulations to offer the best treatment for you.
In the following instances, a compounded medication therapy may be indispensable:
- Preservative-Free medications are required.
- Certain dyes, sugars, alcohols, or lactose must be avoided.
- Combination products or other special formulations are desired but are not commercially available.
- Normally commercially available product is backordered or discontinued.
- Alternative dosage form or strength outside of what is commercially available is necessary.
- Allergy or side effect to a commercially available product.
- Commercially available treatments have failed.
