Gastroenterology

Compounded medications and medical foods extend the treatment options for numerous diseases and disorders of the digestive tract. Custom Medicine Pharmacenter works extensively with gastroenterologists and colorectal surgeons as well as internal medicine and family practitioners to deliver some of the most effective and innovative therapies available today.

Based on research and practical application, these novel approaches deliver great outcomes with high levels of patient compliance not available through traditional therapies.

Nausea
When patients present with severe nausea, whether from flu symptoms or chemotherapy side effects, oral medications are rarely the best route of dosing.

Transdermal medications deliver systemic levels without needles or rectal administration.
