Palliative care is the treatment of patients whose disease or condition is non- responsive to curative treatment. It focuses mainly on providing relief from symptoms, pain, and mental stress.
Because palliative care is so unique to each individual patient, it benefits enormously from compounded medicines that can address the patient’s specific needs and care plans while allowing the caregiver to do their job more efficiently.
While every individual is unique, common symptoms and problems include:
- Pain Management
- Nausea and Vomiting
- Severe Constipation
- Decubitus Ulcers
- Shortness of Breath
We can compound medications which can help with all the above problems, and in a range of forms tailored to suit the patient such as:
- Extended-release capsules
- Gummy bears
