Sometimes, “one size fits all” isn’t a good fit – especially when your good health can depend on it. Your typical corner pharmacy may be stocked with the usually available medications, but what if you need a customized prescription, something that isn’t sitting on a drug store shelf?
That’s when you need to see Joseph Drummond at Balcones Pain Consultants’ GenoRite Pharmacy, located at Davis Lane west of Mopac in south Austin. A native Central Texan with a doctorate in pharmacy from Texas A&M’s Health Science Center, he can get you a precisely specified, personalized medication when you need it, in the exact strength and dosage you require.
Joseph is trained to provide medication in various ways to make them easier to take and ensure they work effectively. These include ointments, gels, syrups, suspensions, suppositories, capsules or other formulations that address special health problems – or make you feel better faster.
Other patient concerns can be addressed, too. Want your medication to be free of dyes, preservatives, alcohol or sugar? Want particular ingredients excluded due to allergies or other sensitivities? Prefer a certain flavor be added? High trained and experienced, Joseph can help you.
Also offered are pharmacogenetic consultations to patients with genetic reports. Your genetic information can help guard again drug interactions and adverse reactions and enhance drug effectiveness. GenoRite Pharmacy is partnered with Genotox Labs to test 100+ medications and will work closely with your primary care physician to share and interpret your individual report.
GenoRite also stocks supplements your doctor or pharmacist may recommend and provides immunization without an appointment for flu, pneumonia, shingles, TDAP (tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis, more commonly known as “whooping cough”) and meningitis.
With an appointment, you can be immunized for hepatitis A and B, HPV, Japanese encephalitis, MMR (measles, mumps and rubella), rabies and typhoid. Free educational materials also are available on topics such as travel & seasonal health concerns, medication misuse and smoking cessation.
