Compounding Options

Podiatry

Podiatry - Achilles Tendonitis
The Achilles tendon connects the heel bone to the calf muscle. It is a common site for overuse and injury, particularly in sports. This kind of injury can be very slow to heal.
 
We compound ingredients to apply to the skin, which may increase blood flow and may speed up the healing process, while providing some pain relief. Local applications such as this may potentially cause fewer side effects than oral medications.
 
Talk to your medical provider to discuss compounding as a treatment option. Or contact us to inquire about potential treatment strategies and cost.
 
Podiatry - General Podiatry

Snell's Pharmacy can customize preparations for foot health wich may improve therapeutic outcomes and reduce side effects.

Compounding medications for such diseases allows for:
  • unique delivery vehicles to be used (i.e. topical cream, scalp lotion, nail lacquer); which makes administering the medication easier and more pleasant
  • medicines based on individual need as prescribed by a physician
  • multiple medications sometimes can be combined

Podiatry - Neuropathy
Neuropathy is a chronic condition of pain resulting from damage or dysfunction to the central or peripheral nervous system itself, instead of local injury.
 
Compounds that may relieve the muscle and soft tissue pain, applied directly to tissues, include Amytriptyline, Baclofen, Carbemapezine, Clonidine, Gabapentin, Ketamine, Mexiletine and Phenytoin. These topical compounds may have fewer side effects and may provide more immediate effect than pills.

Podiatry - Plantar Warts
Warts are skin infections from the human papillomavirus (HPV) group. Warts thrive in warm, wet conditions such as showers, pool areas and sweaty shoes. They are quite contagious, so it is best to treat them immediately.
 
Common topical gel compounds may include Cimedtadine, Deoxy-D-Glucose (DDG), high potency Salicylic Acid and F-Flourouracil. Talk to your medical provider to discuss compounding as a treatment option. Or contact us to inquire about potential treatment strategies and cost.
 
Podiatry - Toenail Fungus
A fungal infection occurs as a white or yellow spot under fingernails or toenails. As it invades deeper into tissues, the nail becomes thick, discolored, crumbling, eventually turning black.
 
Nail fungus is not the same as athlete's foot fungus, although it can be transmitted from the same conditions of moist environment such as showers, pool areas, locker rooms and sweaty shoes.
 
Real eradication of fungal infection requires long-term oral medication that can have serious side effects. Topical compounds can be made which treat the infection topically (directly on the skin and nails) to aid in treatment.
 
Compounds may include natural tea tree oil, natural undecylenic acid, commonly used Clomitrazole, plus three medications which target nail fungus infection: Itraconozole, Ketoconozole and Terbinafine.
