At Create, we believe that no two patients are truly the same.
Our laboratory and compounding area is a nationwide benchmark for compounding pharmacies. If anyone can make it, it’s us! But don’t just take our word for it, come in and check it out for yourself. Our window into our lab allows you to watch your individual medication being prepared while you wait!
Pharmacy compounding is much more than mixing medications into bases. Our pharmacists consider the physical and chemical properties of each medication that we use and formulate them into stable pharmaceutically elegant products.
Many pharmacies that offer compounding usually require at least a 24-hour turnaround for prescriptions. Our pharmacy is different. We allow patients to wait and watch while their compound is being prepared, which is a truly unique experience. In the case that it can not be prepared immediately, we offer free same day or next delivery to your home!
Many medications produced commercially today contain inactive ingredients that can cause sensitivities with some patients. These include Gluten, Corn, Soy, Dye or Lactose. Our compounding pharmacy can replicate many prescription products without these additives. Call us to find out if your medication can be compounded today.
