Irvine, CA (PRWEB) June 29, 2016

An article published June 4 on BBC News describes the evolution of drugs and treatment options for patients with special health conditions. According to the article, many patients in such areas as oncology are being treated with more personalized prescribed medications to better suit their specific needs. The article goes on to explain that, although there are a variety of standard medications that effectively treat numerous health issues, symptoms can manifest in patients in different forms and standard medications are likely to be more effective when altered to the specifications of the patient’s needs. In these kind of circumstances, MedLife Pharmacy & Compounding notes that compounding pharmacies can be extremely beneficial for customers seeking a more personalized type of treatment for a variety of special health problems, such as:

Pediatrics - Children diagnosed with a variety of conditions are faced with many obstacles that might make taking or administering daily medications very difficult and emotionally trying both on the children and their parents. MedLife Pharmacy & Compounding notes that they offer several forms of dosage that are not readily available in standard prescriptions such as gels, creams, troches and even lollipops. This is especially helpful for special needs children who may be especially uncomfortable with the size and texture of their standard oral medications and refuse to take them. In addition, parents of autistic children in particular are often seeking medications made without certain compounds, which can be specially made by a compounding pharmacy.

Adrenal Fatigue/Thyroid Imbalance - Individuals who suffer from a thyroid imbalance are often required to undergo hormone therapy. This form of treatment uses synthetic hormones to increase the missing or low levels of thyroid hormones in a patient’s system. MedLife Pharmacy & Compounding notes that because the recommended dose of hormones varies in each individual, customers often turn to compounding pharmacies for a more customized approach at treatment. The Irvine compounding pharmacy goes on to note that compounded medications are often able to relieve the specific symptoms of thyroid patients with more precision.

Pain Management - MedLife Pharmacy & Compounding notes that individuals who suffer from chronic pain are often prescribed a large number of painkillers and medications that can be difficult to manage and remember on a daily basis. For this reason, the Irvine compounding pharmacy notes that customers often benefit from choosing to combine their medications into one daily dose, a service that is only available at compounding pharmacies.

MedLife Pharmacy & Compounding concludes by noting that disease symptoms and health conditions are likely to be more manageable with personalized treatment provided by compounding pharmacies.
