Brace Yourself for the Flu and Virus Season

Get Rid of Flu with These Compounding Solutions

Flu and virus season is here.

People rush to get flu shots, don protective face masks in crowded areas, and pour on hand sanitizer like it’s lotion. But sometimes even the most pro-active people can get sick. If that happens, it’s important to know how Community Clinical Pharmacy can help you get back on your feet.

Throat Pain

While illnesses that cause a sore throat are numerous- tonsillitis (tonsillectomies); strep throat; mononucleosis; hand, foot and mouth disease; influenza; colds; and laryngitis, to name a few- one thing seems to be universal: the pain can be unbearable. The catch-22 is that the tablets normally prescribed for pain can be particularly hard to swallow when the pain is in the throat.

Sharzad Green, Pharm.D, is the Hormone Expert at Community Clinical Pharmacy Having helped over 20,000 people with utilizing hormones to improve their quality of life. 

To get around this, we can compound most medicines in an oral suspension to make them easier to take. We can even add ingredients to the suspension specifically to soothe the throat, clear the sinuses, and relieve pressure. Let us work with your doctor to create a tailored suspension to address your specific symptoms.

High Fever

Many people have experienced an extremely high fever during an illness for which the doctor will suggest rotating two types of medications. But what happens when vomiting is involved and the medications won’t stay down? We can compound your medications into suppositories to ensure that you are getting what you need to get you better, or even a transdermal cream to help with the nausea or vomiting.

We can also compound more concentrated doses of liquid medications so that an adult patient does not have to take an excessive amount of liquid to get a higher dose.

Sinus Infections

Many times people develop chronic sinus infections after having a cold or flu or other infection. Chronic sinus infections are hard to treat because of the difficulty in getting medication to penetrate through the thin, slimy film of bacteria that lines the sinus cavity. 

We have a number of new formulations to make it easier for the medicine your doctor prescribes to get to the nasal and sinus cavities– and to the source of your problems.

Highlights of these formulas

  • Comes in convenient, single-dose capsules that are more portable than liquid solutions
  • Can be combined with multiple drugs – antifungals, antibacterials, steroids, or antihistamines
  • Empty the contents of the capsule into sterile water only when you need it, then irrigate or nebulize
  • Doesn’t need to be refrigerated and is preservative-free
  • Has a longer shelf life than liquid formulations

No matter what aspect of the flu season has you down, never hesitate to give us a call so we can help you get back up!
