Sports Medicine Compounding
Sports activities and fitness programs focus upon an athlete’s strengths and are customized to meet his or her individual needs. So why not do the same with medication needs?
- A compounding pharmacist may be able to combine various drugs into a single dosage form to combat nerve pain, customize topical antifungal medications, or formulate special preparations to heal blisters or calluses.
- Compounded sun block creams, lotions, and lip balms may help protect athletes participating in outdoor sports.
Working closely with both the athlete and a healthcare provider, compounding allows pharmacists to prepare medication in strengths and delivery systems that are just right for that particular athlete’s body, for the ultimate in therapy.
