Compounding

Compounded medications can be used for a variety of different ailments from inflammation, dermatology, neuropathic pain and even excessive sweating. At iCare Pharmacy we can also prescribe for compounds so if you need something specific and we can help to find a medication that does best suit your needs. So if you have a condition that has a bit of inflammation we can add an ingredient to help reduce your swelling for example. Another advantage of a compound is that as a topical its effects are local. If you are on an oral medication you absorb that medication through your bloodstream and as a result are more prone to its side effects. The advantage of taking the same oral medication as a topical medication is that it has its effect directly to the area that it is being applied and because it is not being readily absorbed into your bloodstream you are less prone to side effects such as mental clouding as an example.
