Our Ongoing Compounding and Prescription Research

One of the greatest strengths of Pleasant Hills Apothecary is our constantly growing data bank of physician and pharmaceutical research. This ever-changing resource helps to keep us up-to-date on the latest in medical, pharmaceutical, fitness, and nutrition studies and, allows us to better meet your pharmaceutical needs as a leading compounding pharmacy in Pittsburgh. It also allows us to provide you with current, reliable, and understandable medical information that we know will be useful to you as you make important lifestyle and healthcare choices.

The role of any good pharmacy, compounding or traditional, is to constantly evolve. New medications and treatments are available and generally unknown to the public. We seek to learn about new compounded and traditional medications and treatments in hopes to help educate our customers, and we invite doctors to talk with us about our expertise. We work closely with your physician to deliver compounded medications that are either as effective or more effective than your traditional prescriptions, and we dedicate a good part of our time to compounding, implementing, and monitoring hormone replacement therapy in patients who require more than standard pharmaceuticals.

Veterinary Compounding for Pets: Dogs, Cats, Birds, and More

We take great pride in delivering compounded medications for pets and farm animals. We feel that animals have as much of a right to a healthy, full life as humans, and we are honored to work closely with veterinarians to compound medications that help give that happy life to pets and other animals. We can compound medications for pets just like we do for humans—changing dosages, ingredients, flavoring, and so on. We can also help animals by creating medications that are not widely available or that may have been discontinued by major drug companies due to poor demand.
