Podiatrists and other health care professionals encounter numerous problems that may be helped with compounded medications.
We commonly prepare unique formulations that prescribers develop to meet specific needs of their patient population, or “tried and true” formulas acquired during professional training. Penetrant enhancers can be added to improve the extent of absorption of topically applied medications. Numerous compatible medications can be combined into a single dosage form for ease of administration. Also, a synergistic effect can be achieved when certain medications are used concomitantly.
Various conditions that are treated with compounded medications include, but are not limited to:
Neuritis (tingling pain)
How Saf- T Drugs can help you with podiatry compounding
Although many of us take our feet for granted, as soon as something goes wrong it becomes evident that podiatric impairments can have a severe impact on our mobility and quality of life. Traditional podiatry has often managed pain and treated symptoms through systemic oral medications, but with the development of customized topical compounds, many podiatric patients are experiencing better outcomes.
Multiple medications, that have been shown to have modest effects individually, to be combined to form a more potent customized medication. This may speed the healing process and save patients valuable time and money, eliminating needlessly switching from one therapy to the next.
Improve quality of care through topical compounding
Topical compounds can be developed to treat a unique range of symptoms affecting the individual. This is particularly impactful for patients with complicating systemic conditions such as diabetes, for whom adverse drug reactions or complications may be of particular concern. For these patients, topical compounds can be customized to address a range of symptoms—from inflammation to pain and everything in between—without requiring the consumption of systemic medications that may complicate their other conditions. At Saf- T Drugs, we specialize in the development of unique topical compounds, designed to provide optimal care for each patient’s individual podiatric needs.
