Compounding

A Personalized Service

Occasionally your doctor might prescribe a medication that isn’t sold from a medication manufacturer. Our compounding pharmacists are able to make a medication that has the dosage you need and the delivery method you need. We can even compound medication to make it taste better! As one of the few pharmacies in the area that offers this service, we take it very seriously and adhere to strict quality and safety standards. 

Compounding at Work

Capsules

We have the capabilities to make capsules with the exact amount of medication the physician wants. The medication can be in a capsule for immediate release, a slow-release formulation, or in combination with other drugs.

Sublingual

This is absorbing medications in the mouth and is preferred in some cases for faster onset of action or avoiding swallowing problems. We can compound either drops or lozenge containing many different medicines.

Transdermal 

Administering medications through the skin is preferred in many cases when patients are unable to swallow or when a local affect is necessary. This varies from applying an absorption enhanced gel containing a narcotic or anti-nausea medication for absorption into the blood stream to applying non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs for a local affect.

Suppository

Many drugs can be administered rectally when necessary. We have the capability to compound suppositories containing many different medications.

Injections

Hawthorne Pharmacy has invested in equipment that allow us to prepare sterile inject-able medicines custom made for the patient.

Veterinary

Whether to avoid allergic reactions or simply to make a drug taste better, we can customize the standard method of delivery, dosage forms, strength, and flavor for your pets.

Hand Sanitizer

We're doing our part to prevent the spread of COVID-19 by compounding effective, safe hand sanitizer for sale in our stores. 

 

Sterile Preparation Capabilities

Injections

Many times we are asked to prepare a sterile medication for injection. This may be due to a manufacturer being unable to supply a medication or a patient needing a specialized formulation. These injections range from medications to treat pain, erectile dysfunction, to treating vitamin deficiencies.

Eye Drops and Ointments

Ophthalmologist request many new and different strengths of medication to be administered into the eye. These medications may be in the form of a solution or ointment.  In order to prevent infection, these medications must be made using special equipment. We are able to customize these solutions and ointments to the specifications of the physician and patient while maintaining their sterility.

Hormone Replacement

We specialize is bio-identical hormone replacement. We’re happy to answer any questions about the process.
