At Metcalf Compounding Pharmacy, our job is to make your medication just the way you need it. By developing customized, compound medications, we can modify the ingredients to create a safe and effective medication - just for you.
Failure to maintain oral health is directly related to issues with general health and can cause an array of more serious health problems. Ask us about dental compounds for dry sockets, ulcers, bad breath, cold sores, TMJ, burning mouth syndrome and other oral issues.
Creating a compound is more than matching the right base to an active ingredient. Some skin conditions such as rosacea, vitiligo, eczema, psoriasis, & scars can be managed with compounds. We have many different bases to accommodate those with allergies & different skin types. Metcalf Compounding focuses on the aesthetic characteristics of a compound in addition to the therapeutic aspects.
Hormone therapy isn't just for women. Unfortunately, many men dismiss common health issues such as loss of muscle mass, weight gain, insomnia, fatigue, brain fog and decreased libido as the inevitable signs of aging. In reality, hormone therapy can help men lead more energetic lives and slow down those signs of aging.
Unbalanced hormones can make you feel uncomfortable in your own skin. A customized hormone replacement compound can specifically target the symptoms that are different for every woman including metabolism, appetite, sleep cycles, mood, stress, heart rate, brittle bones, irritability, libido or fatigue.
Pain is the most common reason people seek medical help. Unfortunately, pain medication can interact with other medications and also cause constipation, drowsiness, nausea and vomiting. Compounding a unique prescription for pain can eliminate some side effects or provide a different method of delivery such as topical ointments, gels, and creams, liquid suspensions or nasal sprays.
Maintaining a decent quality of life for patients with a terminal illness can be awkward and exhausting. Compounded solutions are available for nausea and vomiting, dry mouth, shortness of breath, anxiety, excessive saliva and wounds. Compatible medications can also be combined for an easier dosage schedule.
Children can present several challenges when it comes to taking their medications. Some children may resist taking a liquid medicine due to its taste. Others may have difficulty swallowing pills. Metcalf Compounding can create a custom medication for your little one to make taking medication easier.
Whether you are a gym rat or a weekend warrior, sports can lead to sprains, strains, blisters, calluses, inflammation and overall pain. When a heating pad or ice bath isn’t enough, Metcalf Compounding can customize a therapy regimen using medication strength and delivery method for each individual athlete.
We love our pets and would do anything to keep them healthy and happy for as long as possible. But have you ever tried to get a reluctant cat to swallow a pill? Or watched a dog lick the peanut butter off the capsule you had carefully hidden inside it, then spit it back out? And since pets come in different sizes, the proper dosage for a Chihuahua will be different than it is for a Great Dane.
Compounded medications for pets can be flavored or disguised in liquids or treats to “make the medicine go down.” We also do a wide variety of medications for transdermal application when “by mouth” isn’t working. We compound many types of animals from cats and dogs, to horses, to llamas and even kinkajous!
