A new era of individualized and effective medicine is emerging, and Lile Wellness Partners is at the forefront, leading the way in this innovative approach. One of these techniques is compounding medicine. The method is the way that pharmacists of previous generations used to by hand make medication for a patient that was prescribed by a doctor. Unlike modern drug creation and distribution, compounding pharmacists used to take a script and onsite in their pharmacy to create the prescribed medication.
Practitioners are Returning to Compound Medicine
This practice ceased after World War II. It was overtaken by drug companies that create drugs according to studies that would drive the pharmaceutical industry to provide general medicines. These formulas were based on studying the average needs of the population, rather than compound pharmacy’s individualized approach. While profit margins rapidly increased, what also grew was dissatisfaction in the effectiveness of these scripts, lack of personalized treatment, and even harmful impacts of these drugs.
Commercially available medications are monitored by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA); they are readily available at a variety of retail pharmacies without a complete understanding of an individual’s physical makeup and needs. This lack of personalized medicine has led many doctors to recommend a compound pharmacy. This type of medication is monitored by the United States Pharmacopeia (USP), licenses compound pharmacies. Licensed compounding pharmacists work with a patient’s doctor, who writes the script and monitors the medication’s effectiveness.
