Compounding Medications for Wound Care and Management
Compounded medications for wound care and management can help speed the process of healing, improve the effectiveness of treatments, and even save lives. This is especially true in cases involving people with pre-existing conditions and the elderly. Using a combination of medications that promote healing and improve the cleanliness of the healing process (preventing infection), compounded medications can make a dramatic impact on one’s recovery from a wide range of wounds, lacerations, and other injuries.
Solutions for Complicated Wound Care and Management
Compounding presents a new set of tools against the challenges and dangers involved with more complicated wounds. We provide effective solutions for those recovering from skin grafts, major surgeries, decubitus ulcers, diabetic ulcers, pressure sores, traumatic wounds, burns, and much more. Using medications like topical Phenytoin, Lidocane, Pentoxifylline, Misoprostol, and helps to control pain and inflammation, as well as to increase circulation to the area of the wound.
If you or someone you love are going through serious wound management and care, we highly encourage you to come in for a one-on-one consultation. We’ll work with your doctors and healthcare team to evaluate your medications and compound solutions, making them more effective than the simple “big pharmacy” oral dosages of drugs.
Scar Therapy at Pleasant Hills Apothecary
We have powerful, time-tested solutions in our compounding arsenal that help reduce scar tissue. Whether it’s acne scars or those following major surgery, we’re able to produce powerful scar therapy solutions that work with your specific needs. These medications can be used immediately following surgery or injury. We also offer solutions for animals who are injured or undergo surgery.
Compounding Is Not Just What We Can Add
Compounding medications also allows us to remove ingredients from medications that may cause side-effects when absorbed through open wounds and sores. Many elderly patients aren’t able to maintain the proteins, vitamins, and electrolytes needed to granulate a wound. This challenge can also lead the malabsorption of oral medications, which is where compounded, topical medications can excel in helping heal wounds and sores.
Additionally, we can compound a customized Polyox Bandage, which allows us a wide selection of formulations that can be applied directly to your wound—formulations designed specifically for you and your specific health needs.
