Many hospice patients have trouble taking medications in traditional dosage forms.
The skill and caring of a compounding pharmacist can complement a physician’s abilities. Patients with chronic illnesses or who are nearing end of life frequently require symptom control and pain relief.
While every individual is unique, common symptoms and problems include:
- Pain Management
- Nausea and Vomiting
- Severe Constipation
- Decubitis Ulcers
- Shortness of Breath
Compounded medications are available to help with all of the above problems, so that patients can enjoy precious time with loved ones.
