A patient requiring palliative care will have very sensitive needs and wishes when it comes to taking medicines. Edwards Pharmacy has extensive knowledge in pain and symptom management when compounding. Currently, we also supply the Hospice of Queen Anne's with compounded medications, support and advice. We hope our patients will benefit from this expertise when desiring the most comfortable and dignified end-of-life.
Caring for your very special needs
Traditional dosage forms are not always practical for a patient's physical condition. Sometimes a family member may require a dosage form that is easier to administer. We'll work with you to find the best dosage form, strength and combination of ingredients to bring relief and comfort where needed. We are committed to finding solutions for even the most challenging situations.
We can compound to significantly reduce a range of symptoms related to palliative care, including:
- Nausea and Vomiting
- Shortness of Breath
- Terminal Agitation
- Dry Mouth and Stomatitis
- Excessive Pulmonary Secretions
- Radiation Mucositis and Proctitis
- Wound Care
Edwards Pharmacy strives to use our expertise along with a respectful understanding of the patient's and family's needs at the time. Please feel free to discuss your special requirements with one of our experienced pharmacists - we are here to help.
