Compounding is the art of making medicine from scratch, so it can be customized to fit the patient perfectly. Some patients have special needs that go beyond what a commercially available medicine can offer.
LOW DOSE NALTREXONE Is the perfect example: Naltrexone is an FDA approved medication indicated for alcohol dependence at higher doses of 50mg - 100mg. However, studies have shown that at lower doses (1.5mg-4.5mg), patients with a long list of chronic conditions and autoimmune disorders may benefit from this compounded medication. Some doctors may not know too much about this treatment, but we work hand in hand with your physician to make sure we formulate the right dose for our patients.
Please call our pharmacy to find out more information or if you need a referral to a prescriber who treats patients with low dose naltrexone.
