Fitness programs are specifically designed for the individual. Shouldn’t medicine be customized too?
We work closely with both athletes and physicians to develop medicine variations that cater to a specific patient’s body type, resulting in more accurate dosage.
Patients don’t need to be a professional sports player to receive professional care. Our pharmacists are able to combine various drugs into a single dosage form to combat everything from a blister to carpal tunnel. Archway Apothecary even provides ways for athletes to stay protected while they play with compounded sun block creams, lotions and lip balms.
As a healthcare provider, you’re aware that capsules and tablets taken orally must pass through a patient’s digestive tract before making their way into their system, and that some antiinflammatories can result in gastrointestinal side effects. To avoid this, we provide custom topical creams, transdermal gels, and other solutions that are not commercially available.
Here are some compounding opportunities in sports medicine:
- Sports drink formulas
- Muscle Cramps
- Speed gels, topicals
- Sprains and Trigger Point
- Transdermal gels, creams and sticks
- Athlete’s Foot
- Topical antifungals
A male football player and female tennis player require very different strength variations. Commercially-‐available products often come in a limited variety of strengths. Archway Apothecary offers a way to calibrate the exact amount of medication to a certain need and body type, resulting in accurate doses that get your players back in the game as soon as possible.
