Custom Capsules for Weight Management

Article Summary

Empower Pharmacy provides custom weight management capsules tailored to individual patient needs, offering diverse options like Bella and Lipo Burn variants for effective treatment.

Weight management is a serious concern for many patients and their healthcare providers and is often an issue that calls for a personalized, integrative approach. While eating a balanced diet and being physically active are crucial for achieving and maintaining a healthy weight, some people need additional support to achieve their weight management goals.

For instances such as these, there are several FDA-approved medications to help patients lose weight.[1] However, as is the case with many medications, some patients may require customized options — either because the patient needs a different dosage form or strength than is commercially available, or they are allergic to a component of the mass-produced drug, or they need medication or a combination of medications that are not available commercially.

Fortunately, compounding pharmacies allow providers to tailor medications for individual patients based on their specific needs, including custom combination capsules for weight management. Many progressive healthcare practices consider compounded combination capsules as an option for patients who are making health-centered lifestyle changes.

Empower Pharmacy offers a wide range of compounded capsules that providers may find clinically appropriate for patients who are undertaking a comprehensive weight management regimen. Many of these capsules are listed below, along with some commercial prescription products we offer; the list is not exhaustive. With our dedicated research and development team, we are also able to compound custom formulations on an individual basis, so while the lists below represent commonly requested capsules, we’re always happy to discuss other options with healthcare providers based on their patient’s needs.

Providers who already partner with Empower can reach out to their account representative with any questions about these products. Providers who are interested in working with Empower can contact us to discuss what we can offer their practices and their patients.
