Prescription Medication Compounding
Compounding is the process of combining, mixing, or altering the ingredients of a drug to create a medication tailored to the needs of an individual patient. This process typically involves two or more medications.
Sometimes, the health needs of a patient cannot be treated by typical over-the-counter (OTC) drugs. Additionally, compounded medications are recommended for those who:
- Have an allergy to a certain dye or chemical in some OTC medications.
- Are an elderly patient or a child who aren’t able to swallow a pill, or otherwise need a medicine in a liquid, gummie or more easily-delivered form.
The practice of compounded medication allows for custom-tailored medicine, designed with the individual in mind instead of a “one size fits all” mentality that most are used to.
A prescription is a doctor-ordered medication accompanied by written instructions with the expressed idea of restoring a patient back to health. Prescriptions may include specific directions to be followed in order to get the maximum benefit from the prescribed medication.
As the field of medicine has become more and more complex, the meaning of the term “prescription” has come to include clinical assessments, laboratory tests, and other studies in order to best monitor the ongoing success of the prescribed drugs, in addition to the patient’s health and well-being.
At StoneBriar Pharmaceutical Services, we offer traditional prescriptions such as Tamiflu, Eliquis and Lipitor to name a few, or their “generic” counterparts.
Whether your ailments can be managed with a traditional prescription, or require a compounded drug tailored to your specific needs, we are here to help.
Immunizations and Vaccines

Medication Therapy Management (MTM)
Medication Therapy Management seeks to optimize drug therapy and improve therapeutic outcomes for patients. MTM includes a broad range of professional activities, including but not limited to performing patient assessment and/or a comprehensive medication review, formulating a medication treatment plan, monitoring efficacy and safety of medication therapy, enhancing medication adherence through patient empowerment and education, and documenting and communicating MTM services to prescribers in order to maintain comprehensive patient care.
Medication therapy management includes five core components:
- Medication Therapy Review (MTR) – a systematic process of collecting patient and medication-related information which occurs during the pharmacist-patient encounter. This process also helps in the identification and prioritization of medication-related issues.
- Personal Medication Record (PMR) – includes all prescription and nonprescription products previously taken by the person, or slated to be taken in the future.
- Medication-Related Action Plan (MAP) – The MAP is a self-actionable plan necessary to achieve the patient’s specific health goals, as well as, to record actions and track progress towards their specific health goals.
- Intervention and/or Referral
- Documentation and Follow-Up
During the MTM session, medication-related problems are identified and an appropriate intervention resolution is decided. Following the patient intervention, the encounter is documented and an appropriate patient follow-up is scheduled.
Saliva Hormone Testing
Hormones are powerful molecules essential for maintaining physical and mental health. An imbalance of any one hormone can throw your physical and mental health out of balance, causing health problems.
There are several ways to test for hormones (saliva, serum and urine), but the best method is through saliva. This is because only the active portions of hormones are measured and it is these portions that determine how individuals feel. If you are seeking bio-identical hormone replacement (BHRT), you will need to know your active hormone level count.
Saliva Hormone Testing is right for those who are concerned with changing hormone levels as they age. Women experiencing PMS symptoms, peri/post-menopausal women concerned with their estradiol and progesterone levels for replacement considerations, or those who want to monitor their hormone levels following replacement therapy are encourage to get tested.
Additionally, you make seek testing if you’re experiencing one of these:
- Chronic Fatigue
- Chronic Stress
- Immunity Disorders
- Blood Sugar Disorders
Men and women of any age who are having symptoms due to a potential hormone imbalance should get a test to be able to target the correct problem with the right solution.
