Backordered & Discontinued Medication: How Compounding Can Help

CPBHmedicineIt can be devastating to find out a medication you depend on daily is on backorder or is no longer available. Hearing this news can stir up panic and uncertainty, however, there are options out there to get you the medication you need.

Pharmaceutical Compounding For Backorders

Oftentimes, the unavailability of a drug is due to backordering. Just like any other business, drug manufacturers face variables such as production issues or shipping delays, which can make it difficult if not impossible to meet patient demand.

If this sounds like a familiar situation, it’s time to consider pharmaceutical compounding. When you choose to work with a pharmacy like The Compounding Pharmacy of Beverly Hills, you skip the hassle of searching across pharmacies or waiting for orders to arrive. We create batches of your medication and ship it quickly.

With pharmaceutical compounding, you receive specialized treatment and a personal solution. We work hard to give you the fastest results and best value. Why? Because we don’t want you to worry about your medications.

Pharmaceutical Compounding For Discontinued Drugs

Unfortunately, not all cases are simply an issue of slow or problematic production. Major drug companies can stop the manufacturing process whenever they like. Their primary goal is to make the greatest profit.

Fortunately, you have options here, too. At The Compounding Pharmacy of Beverly Hills, we can form useful drugs with the same active ingredients and can customize them in the most useful dosage and form based on your needs. In many cases, the compounded medications we create are easier for your body to utilize than the original.

Common Unavailable Medications

Whether it’s a production shortage or discontinuation, there are several medications affected. Some well-known drugs that are no-longer available include:

  • Acetaminophen capsules
  • Calcium citrate oral solutions
  • Reserpine tablets
  • Dichloralphenazone capsules
  • Hydroxyzine injections
  • Lidocaine injections
  • Buprenorphine sublingual tablets
  • Calcium citrate injections
  • Sodium chloride injections
  • Cortisone acetate 25 mg capsules

General Benefits Of Compounded Medications

There are several benefits to choosing compounded medicine. You’ll always know the product is fresh and has the longest possible shelf life. Some pharmacies may keep drugs for months before selling them, but we are able to ship out medications immediately since each batch is custom-made according to patient specifications.

We also have access to alternative options that are not available through traditional pharmacies. You can opt for drugs in solutions, gummies, topical gels, and even lollipops. Another great advantage we offer is the ability to cut out inactive ingredients that often cause sensitivity in patients. This process can greatly reduce or eliminate side effects caused by the medication. Why do we work so hard to create effective custom medicinal compounds? We believe you have the right to medication that works for your body and lifestyle.
