Importance of Neurology Medication

Patients diagnosed with a neurological condition will need medication that address their unique symptoms and takes into account their overall health. At Brigent Specialty Pharmacy, our team formulates highly-precise medication to deliver maximum treatment results.

Why Use Compounded Medications

Patients may need compounded medications if:

  • The medication is discontinued, hard-to-find, or in shortage
  • The patient needs a very specific dosage that isn’t commercially available
  • The current formulation is hard to take (for example, the pill is too large)
  • The patient is allergic to a particular ingredient, such as sugar, casein, aluminum, dyes, gluten, or lactose
  • Two or more therapies need to be combined into one medication
