Wailea, HI – Factors affecting health and wellness differ from person to person due to aging, lifestyle choices, genetics, diet/nutrition, and environmental surroundings. For this reason, some medicines can affect some patients differently than others. Compounding medicine intervenes to adjust/customize medication to patients’ needs, whether antibiotics, pain, sterile eye drops, thyroid, skin problems, sexual dysfunction, hormone-related conditions, wound care, sports medicine, and more. A doctor prescribes compounded medicine if a product is non-existent, a patient needs a specialized strength/dosage that’s unavailable, or if they are allergic to the ingredients on the market.
Wailea People & Paws Pharmacy is a compounding pharmacy in Hawaii providing attentive and custom health care to improve the quality of life of people/pets and empower clients to participate in their health/wellness goals. The compounding team prepares unique dosages free of alcohol, dyes, lactose, sugar, or other problematic materials/ingredients if requested. They adhere to regulations and standards set by the US Pharmacopeia, State Boards of Pharmacy, and National Association of Boards to change the dosage form, reduce side effects, remove additives, and add flavor to make it more palatable. The team makes compounded medications from scratch by combining raw ingredients in suppositories, dental formulations, emulsions, lip balms, ointments/creams, gels, IV’s, Injectables, films and other custom troches.
When pets have medical problems, veterinarians prescribe antibiotics, parasite preventatives, or anti-seizure medications. However, administering the drugs can be challenging if they are not in pet-friendly flavors or are unsuitable for a pet’s condition. With veterinary compounding, pharmacists can combine, mix, or alter ingredients to create flavored suspensions or capsules tailored to an animal’s needs. The pharmacy’s in-house state-of-the-art sterile USP 797 cleanroom allows the team to provide compounded sterile medication for IV’s, injections, or eye drops made with FDA-approved materials/ingredients. The USP800 room allows the team to safely provide compounded hazardous drugs such as testosterone and other hormones in unique and customized dosage forms.
