Saint Cloud Pharmacy provides compounding services to all medical specialities including Bio identical Hormone Replacement Therapy, Pain & Sports Medicine, Dermatology, Wound Care, Pediatrics, Transdermal Preparations, Customized Vitamins, Hospice, Veterinary and Respiratory. The demand for professional compounding has increased as healthcare professionals and patients realize that the limited number of strengths and dosage forms that are commercially available do not meet the needs of many patients, and that these patients often have a better response to a customized dosage form that is Prescribed by your Doctor

Our pharmacists are highly trained in the signs and symptoms of hormone imbalances in both men and women and work along with your physician to develop a hormone replacement plan that is customized to your needs. Besides utilizing the most common hormones, the three estrogens and progesterone, we also work with testosterone, pregnenolone, cortisol, DHEA, and thyroid hormones. Depending on the patient we can customize a plan to include any combination of these.

Compounding combines an ageless art with the latest medical knowledge and state-of-the-art technology, allowing specially trained professionals to prepare customized medications to meet each patient’s specific needs. Compounding is fundamental to the profession of pharmacy and was a standard means of providing prescription medications before drugs began to be produced in mass quantities by pharmaceutical manufacturers

Advantage of Compounding

Compounding has several advantages over conventional pharmacies. By specially compounding a medication, we are able to offer certain variations such as dye-free, preservative-free, and lactose-free. We can offer our medications in a variety of dosage forms to fit each patient’s lifestyle; we offer capsules, transdermal creams, and troches (similar to a cough drop) to name a few. Everyone knows one-size doesn’t fit all and compounding medications enables the pharmacists to customize each prescription. Our state of the art compounding lab enables us to formulate your prescription to your physician’s exact specifications.

Custom Compounding

Many patients are allergic to preservatives or dyes, or are sensitive to standard drug strengths. With a physician's prescription, a compounding pharmacist can change the strength of a medication, alter its form to make it easier for the patient to ingest, or add flavor to it to make it more palatable. A compounding pharmacist can also prepare the medication using several unique delivery systems, such as sublingual troche or lozenge, or a transdermal cream. Or, for those patients who are having a difficult time swallowing a capsule, a compounding pharmacist can make a suspension or suppository instead. We are capable of preparing any compounded medication according to your doctors need.
