Compounding Makes Medicine Better
Kids or Pets Hate the Flavor? Not Anymore
If your child or pet doesn’t like the taste of a medication, compounding can help them love it. We can re-flavor a commercial product, make a new formulation that tastes better, or even make a version that doesn’t have to be swallowed! Cats love medications mixed in Triple Fish, dogs’ medications can be turned into a tasty dog treat, and both may prefer having a compounded cream rubbed on the inside of their ear over swallowing a tablet.
Get Smaller Doses for Smaller People or Pets
If the medication your child or pet needs comes in too high of a dosage, we can tailor the dose for their specific weight.
No More Trouble Swallowing
If you or a loved one has trouble swallowing tablets or capsules, we may be able to compound them into another dosage form that’s easier to take: oral liquid, cream or gel that soaks through the skin, and even a lozenge.
Take the Edge off of Menopause
Thanks to compounding, you can treat your symptoms with Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT). Many women prefer this more natural approach to confronting menopause symptoms. Visit our BHRT Page for more information.
Keep Taking Your Discontinued Medication
If your discontinued medication was working well for you, and your doctor wants to continue it, then compounding the product may be a solution. As long as the manufacturer has stopped making the product for reasons other than safety concerns, we’re happy to research the formula needed and specially prepare it for you.
Stop Suffering From Medication Allergies/Intolerance.
If you are allergic or intolerant to lactose, preservatives, dyes, gluten, sugar, or other specific ingredients, we can compound your medication to remove them!
Why Go Through Bremo?
As a local pharmacy, we compound medication for you: our families, friends, and neighbors. Nothing is more important to us than your health and well-being. We follow the highest standards when preparing your medications, and use only the best ingredients.
In our state of the art compounding lab we are well equipped to take care of all your compounding needs for both non-sterile, hazardous, and non-hazardous compounds. Our new lab separates hazardous compounds such as methimazole, hydroxyurea or bioidentical hormone replacement from non-hazardous compounds. The hazardous compounding lab refreshes the air 12 times per hour and continuously draws the air up and out of the room to protect the employees and avoid cross-contamination. This ensures that compounds made at Bremo are safe for our
patients as well as, ensuring our pharmacists and technicians are safe in the preparation process. Compounding is not a service offered at every community pharmacy due to the necessary training and equipment required to properly make compounds. In order to become a compounding pharmacy, there is an extensive list of training, facility, and quality regulations that must be met. This is to ensure the final product is properly made and safe to use.
Our compounding specialists love the challenge in finding solutions to your unique medication-related problems. We’re happy to work with you and your doctor, or your pet’s veterinarian, to personalize your medication through compounded prescriptions.
