Personalized Medication

Daily clinical practice demonstrates the large variability of individual response to analgesics and co-analgesics. Conventional dosing regimes can result in a lack of efficacy in individual patients, whereas others experience adverse events, overdose or even toxicity. Accordingly, a tool to improve individual therapy in patients suffering from pain is highly welcomed.

Personalized medicine is about making the treatment individualized. It involves identifying genetic and genomic variants that are present or not, which leads to more effective medication prescribing. In order for personalized medicine to be used effectively by healthcare providers and their patients, these findings must be translated into precise diagnostic tests and targeted therapies. 

How does personalized medication benefit patients?

There are several reasons why prescribers and pharmacists provide compounded medications for patients. The primary reason for compounding is to avoid patient non-compliance, which means the patient is either unable or unwilling to use the medication as directed. Many patients are allergic to preservatives or dyes, or require a dosage that is different from the standard drug strengths.

With a physician’s consent, a compounding pharmacist can:

  • Adjust the strength of a medication
  • Avoid unwanted ingredients, such as dyes, preservative, lactose, gluten, or sugar
  • Add flavor to make the medication more palatable
  • Prepare medications using unique delivery systems

For patients who find it difficult to swallow a capsule, a compounding pharmacist may prepare the drug as a flavored liquid suspension instead. Other medication forms include topical gels or creams that can be absorbed through the skin, suppositories, sublingual troches, or even lollipops.
