Having a loved one in a Hospice environment is extremely challenging. Many Hospice patients experience pain, anxiety, nausea, vomiting and constipation.
All of these difficult issues are usually coupled with an inability to swallow which makes taking necessary medications almost impossible.
Through compounding, our team of pharmacists can work with the physician to formulate medications tailored to the unique needs of the hospice patient giving relief to both patient and loved ones.
Hospice patients may benefit from the following compounds:
- Transdermal Pain Gels
- Sub-lingual Drops (placed under the tongue)
- Suppositories (Chlorpromazine)
- Oral Troches (placed between the cheek and gum)
- Comfort Kits
