When a patient’s chronic illness is no longer responding to curative treatments, palliative care helps ease the patient’s pain in his or her remaining time. At CFS Pharmacy, a knowledgeable compounding pharmacist can produce customized medications to help relieve a variety of end-of-life issues.
Every patient is unique, but we can offer many palliative care solutions for relief of a variety of symptoms, such as:
- Pain management
- Shortness of Breath
- Nausea and Vomiting
- Decubitus Ulcers
- Severe Constipation
We work with practitioners and caregivers to compound medications that can help relieve all of the above problems, meeting the specific needs of patients in end-of-life situations and helping them get more enjoyment out of their remaining time with loved ones.
Compounded Medications for Use in Palliative Care
Because there are so many terminal conditions, and so many different symptoms suffered by patients in end-of-life situations, each patient’s medical case is truly unique. That makes it challenging to find evidence-based studies about the management of pain and other symptoms in those with terminal illnesses.
However, these patients are some of the most in need of creative, compassionate care. Working together with practitioners, our clinicians and compounding pharmacists can go beyond commercially available medications to find innovative, customized treatment solutions.
Contact our compounding pharmacist to discuss your patient’s needs and the dosage form, strength, and medication or combination of medications that is most appropriate.
