Cathy Puffer is passionate about compounding. Chances are most of us don’t really know what that means from a pharmaceutical standpoint – it’s just not one of those everyday words.
Yet compounding — the art and science of creating personalized medicine — solves many problems that patients have. And Remedy’sRx is the only pharmacy she knows of in Kawartha Lakes that offers this service.
“We can compound dosages that aren’t commercially available for patients,” Puffer says. “This is helpful in many instances. Patients trying to stop medications often find it easier to wean off rather than stopping suddenly.” She uses anti-depressants as a good example of this.
