Most vaccines may be administered without an additional trip or copay to your doctor and can be covered by your insurance at little to no cost.

Compounding Services

What is Compounding
Compounding is the art of a pharmacy using a mortar and pestle to create medications that are customized to uniquely fit your needs.  This customized service requires a commitment between the pharmacist, physician, and patient to achieve quality outcomes.

How Can Compounding Help You?
Medication Dosage, Allergies, and Issues
Some patients cannot swallow a pill and therefore require the medication to be made into a liquid form.  Also, allergies to excipients in commercial medications such as lactose, casein, gluten, dyes, and preservatives require custom formulas.  Sometimes a special dose of medication is required that is no longer commercially available.  Compounding can help in all of these situations.

Pain Management, Hormone, and Thyroid Replacement
Pain management medications can sometimes cause an upset stomach, and Asti's pharmacy specializes in helping address this issue by compounding medication into a topical cream.  This cream can then be applied directly to the painful area.  Compounding can also be used for patients looking for bio-identical hormone replacement, which is replacing hormone levels in women and men; this includes thyroid replacement.

Custom Topical, Child, and Pet Medication
Many patients need special topical cream for treatments of rashes, eczema, acne, psoriasis, warts, and wound healing.  Asti's can help formulate these creams directly for each patient. Children and babies who typically have difficulty taking medications can also benefit from compounding.  By working with our compounding pharmacist, we can flavor and create the right volume to ease the process for both caregiver and child.  Also, Pet's need medication, too.  We can create topical creams, oral liquids, capsules, and treats to meet all of your pet needs. 

Commitment to Excellence

Disease State Educational Programs

At Asti's, we continue to care about your health after you leave the store. One way we strive to help you stay healthy is by providing free disease education. Here you can learn more about your diabetes, how to quick smoking, what to do if you have high blood pressure and more.

Medication Therapy Management

Do you have questions about your medications? What if you think one of the medicines is causing a side effect?

Schedule a one-on-one meeting, a Medication Therapy Management (MTM) session, with one of our trained pharmacists. Here you can have a full mediation review that includes prescription, over the counter, and herbal items to verify that all are efficiently working properly and safely. In addition to medication, your session will include an immunization review and blood pressure check-in.

Allow one of our pharmacists to take the lead to resolve any problems with your current medications! A MTM may be available at no cost and many Medicare Part D insurance plans include MTM as part of your benefits. Call today to schedule your appointment or find out more!

Adherence Packaging - RxMAP

Taking multiple medications daily can be confusing. Did you forget to take a dose or have you taken one too many times? With Asti’s RxMAP program, we take the confusion out of taking your medication. Our Medical Adherence Packaging helps you take your medications just as the doctor ordered.

Each month you’ll receive four weekly disposable pill boxes that our pharmacists will fill with your morning, noon, evening, and bedtime medications for each day. What is even better? All of this can be done at no additional charge beyond your copay's. We’ll call you each month to verify your medications and check for any problems or concerns.

If you are taking over the counter medications or vitamins, not a problem! We can include all your medications into the packs with competitive pricing. Each box also includes a list of your current medications, which is perfect to take to doctor’s appointments or the hospital in case of emergency.

Allow us to take the guess work out of your daily medication routine and join the RxMAP program today!
