Compounding Pharmacy Costs

Compounding pharmacies prepare customized medications based on your doctor’s prescription, while adjusting the drugs to suit your unique medical requirements and personal preferences. As long as you choose a dependable and experienced compounding pharmacy, you can be assured of high quality medications and reliable services.  

American Integrative Pharmacy (AIP), led by Dr. Neema Yazdanpanah, provides safe and proven compounding medications to patients in Long Beach, Torrance, Los Angeles, South Bay Orange County, Southern California areas, and online nationwide. 

Quality and Affordability  

A dedicated compounding pharmacy will work hard to maintain its impeccable reputation as well as preserve the long term relationships with customers. Therefore, well-established and recognized compounding pharmacies will never over-charge for the medications and offer the right prices for all their prescription medications and other products.  

However, a trusted compounding pharmacy will keep the quality of its medications as the foremost priority. They will not cut corners on quality just to offer a low price for the medications. In fact, some of the best pharmacies insist on using only “Made in the USA” ingredients for all their medications. Therefore, you should review the costs always in the context of the quality and reliability of the compounded medications you are using.  

Formulation of Customized Drugs 

A well-equipped compounding pharmacy will be able to create custom dosages for your drugs, which are not available commercially. For example, if you require 5 mg of a medication, but the small dose available commercially is 20 mg, your compounding pharmacy can produce your required dose in a convenient form.  

This will avoid the risks of over-dosing, which may otherwise happen if you try to use commercial drugs by dividing them on your own to meet your smaller dosage requirements. Similarly, if you have a known allergy to a particular additive or preservative used in commercial drugs, your compounding pharmacy may have the capability to produce a hypo-allergenic form of your prescription.  

Depending on your condition, if it is difficult for you to swallow pills, your compounding pharmacy can formulate the medication you need in liquid form. The pharmacist may even add flavor to it so that it becomes easier for you to comply with your medication intake. 

Compounded Drugs can be Cheaper  

In many cases, compounded medications may be considerably cheaper compared to the commercial drugs. Your compounding pharmacy may have access to high quality, pure chemicals that are available at a lower cost. Sometimes the use of superior quality pharmaceuticals may also mean that you need lower dosage, which will bring down your overall costs of medication. 

In some cases, your compounding pharmacist may remove expensive preservatives and designer dyes that have been patented by a particular drug manufacturer. With the removal of these ingredients, your compounded medications may turn out to be substantially cheaper than the commercial drugs. If you order online prescription refills, you may also have the added convenience of receiving your compounded medications at your doorstep.  

AIP provides advanced compounding pharmacy solutions, including online prescription refills to patients in Long Beach, Torrance, Los Angeles, South Bay Orange County, Southern California areas, and online nationwide.
