Many people suffer with pain needlessly, mistakenly believing its part of aging or nothing can be done to help them. We offer a new solution to address the predicament of pain sufferers who do not respond to commercially available preparations – gels, creams and rubs suitable for topical application, avoiding the oral route, thus minimizing potential side effects such as stomach irritation and liver damage.
Addressing autism involves more than prescription drugs alone can achieve. When no commercially available agent is appropriate for a pediatric patient, a compounded formulation often assures successful treatment.

DID YOU KNOW- Men with diabetes tend to develop erectile dysfunction 10 to 15 years earlier than men without diabetes. As men with diabetes age, erectile dysfunction becomes even more common. Above the age of 50, the likelihood of having difficulty with an erection occurs in approximately 50% to 60% of men with diabetes. Above age 70, there is about a 95% likelihood of having some difficulty with erectile dysfunction. The causes of erectile dysfunction in men with diabetes are complex and involve impairments in nerve, blood vessel, and muscle function. High blood sugar over time can damage the blood vessels and nerves including vessels leading to and within the penis, causing erectile dysfunction. Call our pharmacists to find out which compounded supplements can help. Besides, June is Men’s Health Month. Encourage the men and boys in your life to make their health a priority. Wear blue to show your support for male health and to encourage men to live longer and healthier lives!
DID YOU KNOW -- Spinach has an extremely high nutritional value and is rich in antioxidants. It is a good source of vitamins A, B2, C and K, and also contains magnesium, manganese, folate, iron, calcium and potassium. The flavonoids and antioxidants found in spinach, particularly the antioxidant beta-carotene, have been shown in multiple studies to help combat many cancers, including breast, prostate and ovarian cancer. Spinach also boosts eye health and has strong anti-ageing properties. A recent study found a bowl of spinach every day increases muscle efficiency. Researchers from the Karolinska Institute in Sweden found participants who consumed 300 grams of spinach a day reduced the amount of oxygen required to power their muscles while exercising by 5%. The effect was noticeable after just 3 days of spinach consumption. Researchers from the Queensland Institute of Medical Research found leafy greens e.g. spinach and silverbeet to be linked with a reduction in the risk of skin cancer, particularly among those with a previous history of the disease. Consuming more spinach is an excellent, natural way to enhance any diet!
DID YOU KNOW - Patients with several stress-associated neuropsychiatric disorders, notably post-traumatic stress disorder and chronic pain and fatigue syndromes, have low plasma levels of the stress hormone cortisol. The effects appear greatest in those initially traumatized in early life. While cortisol levels are typically tested in fatigued or chronically stressed patients, it can also be useful to test cortisol in those suffering from chronic allergies. If saliva testing determines that cortisol levels are low, and a physician determines that supplementation is needed, we can compound cortisol in a titratable dosage form and also recommend supplements to help restore adrenal function.
DID YOU KNOW - Magnesium is the fourth most abundant mineral in the body which is found in bones, teeth, and red blood cells. Magnesium is an essential element required for proper functioning of the nervous, muscular, and cardiovascular systems. A balanced diet may provide all the magnesium some people need, but those with specific illnesses or who are taking certain medications may benefit from magnesium supplements. The type of magnesium supplement is very important, as some forms of magnesium like magnesium sulfate and magnesium oxide are not well absorbed and while they may work for other reasons like as a laxative, they don’t raise magnesium levels. Magnesium glycinate is an excellent supplement. Ask one of our pharmacists to find out more information.
If your pet is having behavioural issues such as being frightened by loud noises or separation anxiety when left at home, compounded medications may be able to help. We can customize medications in various dosage forms to best suit your pet, including flavoured treats and transdermal creams. Ask any one of our compounding pharmacists for more information now!
DID YOU KNOW -- When pregnant or lactating women use topical medications, the fetus or infant may also be exposed because the drugs in topical medications can be absorbed into the maternal circulation and cross the placenta or be excreted into breast milk. Topical medications should not be applied near the nipple where the infant could ingest the drug directly, unless the safety of the medication is cleared with the obstetrician, pediatrician or pharmacist. For example, avoid high-potency steroids or topical anesthetics on nipples when breastfeeding. When topical medication is used, creams are preferred, although excess cream should be removed before nursing. Always remember to check with your healthcare prescriber if in doubt.

DID YOU KNOW – Along with killing cancer cells, radiation therapy may also damage cells that make up the lining of the intestines. This irritation and/or inflammation (radiation enteritis) typically begins in the 2nd or 3rd week of treatment and leads to abdominal pain and diarrhea in 75-90% of patients receiving radiation for prostate, rectal, pancreatic, colon, uterine or cervical cancer. Radiation proctitis is specific to the rectum, often causing fecal urgency with cramp-like rectal pain, and bloody stools. The first-line therapy for radiation proctitis with bleeding are sucralfate enemas, which often have a rapid and dramatic effect because it provides a protective coating to protect the injured lining of the rectum. The effects of sucralfate enemas are found to be superior to the commonly used therapies with steroids. Sucralfate enemas are not commercially available but can be compounded in a compounding pharmacy. Ask our compounding pharmacists today about other customized therapies to help relieve the side effects of cancer therapy.
