Compounding Pharmacies provide a solution to patients with allergies to medication 

One of the first questions a physician or pharmacists asks a new patient is: “do you have any known allergies to medication”.  Prescriptions and over the counter products may contain ingredients and fillers that cause anything for minor irritation and itching to anaphylactic shock for a patient.  While the former can be annoying, the latter option has the potential to be life threatening.

Allergens in the fillers, binders, and other components of a prescription or medication may include:

  • Gelatin
  • Peanut oil derivatives
  • Wheat
  • Dairy
  • Corn
  • Gluten
  • Potatoes
  • Coconut

How can a compounding pharmacy help patients with an allergy to medication?

A compounding pharmacy may reformulate a product to remove the unwanted, unnecessary ingredient that may cause an allergic reaction to the patient.  The pharmacist implements the triad relationship and works with you (the patient) and your physician to create a prescription that is right for you.

At Shertech Pharmacy, we can create the exact compound prescription that you need, while eliminating the inactive ingredients that may cause allergies or trigger sensitivities. For many allergy suffers, this provides much-needed relief from their allergy-related symptoms.
