We work closely with the prescriber and the patient to ensure that the customized prescription is carefully compounded to meet the patient’s individual needs.
Leesburg, FL (PRWEB) August 28, 2012
Lake County and The Villages residents now have a new resource for customized medications to meet a variety of health conditions. STARx Pharmacy (http://www.STARxPharmacy.com) announces the opening of its new sterile or “clean” room which allows the pharmacy team to produce a wider range of specialty compounded medications.
Medical practitioners will often prescribe customized medications for patients who may have trouble with mass-produced medications because of allergic reactions, trouble with some ingredients, because the patient cannot swallow pills or a medication formula is no longer available.
Additionally, patients undergoing bio-identical hormone replacement therapy will use a compounding pharmacy which creates formulas that mirror the hormones in each individual’s body. Even veterinarians will prescribe compounding medications for their four-legged patients.
“STARx has taken its personalized service offering a step further with the installation of the clean room which allows us to compound sterile injectable drugs and ophthalmic or eye drops,” said Bill Gray, R. Ph and pharmacy director. “We work closely with the prescriber and the patient to ensure that the customized prescription is carefully compounded to meet the patient’s individual needs.”
As a member of the Pharmacy Compounding Centers of America, STARx has access to the highest quality medications and components available on the market and to more than 8,000 medication formulas.
A third generation pharmacist, Gray has extensive knowledge of medications and will help patients monitor their medication therapy for potential drug interaction.
STARx also offers free delivery, medical equipment, and over-the-counter medications. Additionally, STARx is the only pharmacy in the area to offer Medicine-on-Time®, a customized, prepackaged medication management system. STARx Pharmacy is located at 802 East Dixie Avenue, across from Leesburg Regional Medical Center.
