Some injuries, like pressure sores, are difficult to heal. Others, such as burns or ulcers, might suffer tissue disruption or infection when cleaned or treated with traditional medicines. For these types of wounds, compounding services are almost always needed. At Express Pharmacy we specialize in compounding solutions for patients with hard to heal wounds.
Wound compounding involves several tactics and medications applied topically. Express Pharmacy offers many combinations of high quality antibiotics, antifungals, steroids and other ingredients to reduce pain, stimulate new tissue, and increase blood flow.
Our custom gel base is water soluble, yet still adheres to the wound. This allows for minimal contact with the wound and helps prevent aggravation and/or irritation when cleaning the wound. This also helps in the prevention of infections. The use of topical applications is an advantage because it offers minimal systemic absorption. This decreases the risk of unfavorable side-effects and potential drug to drug interactions associated with systemic medications, which can result in significantly improved healing.
Working with our compounding pharmacists can be very helpful in finding the right solution for both patients and prescribers. Consult with our compounding pharmacists today, and they will be happy to discuss formulations and answer any questions.
We use only FDA approved ingredients and make it a priority to prepare formulations to achieve the exact amount required.
At Express Pharmacy, we take pride in assisting those in need by providing exceptional service and expertise.
