Midwest Compounders Pharmacy was founded in 1999 by Dr. Troy S. DeLong, B.S., PharmD, R.Ph. Located in the Kansas City area, Midwest Compounders Pharmacy has become one of the premier specialty pharmacies in the country. With a passion for quality and service, we specialize in preparing customized compounded medications that meet the unique individual needs of each patient. Treating many medical conditions cannot be accomplished by prescription medications alone. That is why we also carry a wide range of vitamins, supplements and skin care products that meet many of the same high quality standards as prescription medications. Some examples of specific individual needs include preparing dye free medications for allergy patients, children and adults who cannot swallow tablets and require liquid medications, individuals who need topical anti-inflammatories (pain medications) because of stomach upset associated with oral tablets or capsules, and hormone replacement for men and women. Although not an all inclusive listing, you can very quickly see that this is an invaluable asset for many patients.
Compounding allows a practitioner to match a medication to you versus the alternative option of matching you to a medication. Let’s think about this statement. Commercially available medications are manufactured with no specific end user (patient) in mind. Compounding allows a practitioner to customize a medication to meet a patient’s specific needs. This is very important because no two individuals are alike. What would you do if your body required a 15mg dose of medication and your only two options were 10mg or 20mg capsules? In the past you would have to choose the closest dose and suffer the potential effects from inappropriate dosing. Now, you have a choice. Compounding allows you to receive the exact dose in the exact dosage form your body needs, potentially reducing or eliminating side effects associated with low or high dosing of medications.
Midwest Compounders Pharmacy is here to help you. This is simply why we are in business.
