Palliative care is defined as specialized medical care for patients living with serious, chronic conditions with an emphasis on comfort measures. While palliative care is a holistic approach to helping patients improve their quality of life and includes psychological and spiritual care especially for those nearing the end of life, medications that help reduce pain or other problematic symptoms are also integral.
For example, a compounding pharmacist can work with the prescribing physician to create pain relief solutions unique to that individual patient. We can also assist doctors in finding the right medication combinations to treat symptoms such as dry mouth, diarrhea, constipation, nausea/vomiting, ulcers, excess mucus, and anxiety, to name a few. In addition to creating personalized compounds, Pure Pharmacy can also adjust the medication route, strength, and may be able to limit unwanted side effects by reducing the number of added ingredients.
