The Benefits of TROCHES

HB Pharmacy can work with your physician to make compounded Troches as prescribed to meet your individualized needs.

Custom compounding of prescription medication is an increasingly popular option for patients seeking a more personalized and effective treatment approach. Troches, also known as lozenges, are a popular form of medication delivery that dissolve in the mouth and deliver medication directly to the bloodstream, bypassing the digestive system. Having a pharmacist custom compound troches of your prescription can provide several benefits.

Firstly, custom-compounded troches allow for personalized dosages, which can be especially important for patients with unique needs or conditions. For example, a patient who is unable to swallow pills may require a smaller dose of medication in a troche form. Additionally, compounding allows for the creation of combination medications that are not readily available in standard form. This can be particularly beneficial for patients with multiple health conditions or those who require several medications for treatment.


Custom-compounded troches can also be beneficial for patients who experience unpleasant side effects from standard medications. In these cases, the pharmacist can create a troche that contains the active ingredient in a lower dosage or a different form that is better tolerated by the patient. Additionally, the pharmacist can add flavors or other ingredients to improve the taste and texture of the troche, making it easier and more pleasant to take.

Another benefit of custom-compounded troches is their ability to provide localized treatment to specific areas of the body. For example, a troche can be created to deliver medication directly to the throat or mouth for patients with conditions such as sore throats or mouth ulcers. This targeted delivery can reduce side effects and increase the effectiveness of the medication.

Custom compounding of troches by a pharmacist can provide many benefits for patients seeking personalized and effective treatment options. From personalized dosages to targeted delivery, custom-compounded troches can offer a variety of advantages over standard medications.

Here are some of the common uses of pharmacy compounded troches:

  1. Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT): Troches can be compounded to deliver hormones such as estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, DHEA, and thyroid hormones. HRT can be beneficial for managing symptoms of menopause, andropause, and thyroid disorders.

  2. Pain Management: Troches can be compounded to deliver pain medications such as opioids, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), and local anesthetics. Troches can provide targeted relief for conditions such as migraines, dental pain, and neuropathic pain.

  3. Anti-Nausea: Troches can be compounded to deliver anti-nausea medications such as ondansetron and promethazine. These troches can be beneficial for patients undergoing chemotherapy, surgery, or those with motion sickness.

  4. Anti-Inflammatory: Troches can be compounded to deliver anti-inflammatory medications such as ketoprofen, diclofenac, and ibuprofen. These troches can be used for conditions such as arthritis, post-operative pain, and dental pain.

  5. Anti-Fungal: Troches can be compounded to deliver anti-fungal medications such as clotrimazole and miconazole. These troches can be used for conditions such as oral thrush and vaginal yeast infections.

  6. Anti-Anxiety: Troches can be compounded to deliver anti-anxiety medications such as benzodiazepines. These troches can provide targeted relief for conditions such as social anxiety and panic attacks.

  7. Sleep Aid: Troches can be compounded to deliver sleep aids such as melatonin and diphenhydramine. These troches can be beneficial for patients with insomnia and sleep disorders.

  8. Wound Care: Troches can be compounded to deliver medications such as silver sulfadiazine for wound care. These troches can provide targeted relief for conditions such as burns and ulcers.

  9. Erectile Dysfunction: Troches for ED can be customized to meet the specific needs of each individual patient. A compounding pharmacist can create a troche that contains a combination of medications that are tailored to the patient’s specific medical history, symptoms, and lifestyle. This personalized approach can result in a more effective treatment plan for the patient.

It is important to note that pharmacy compounded troches should only be used under the guidance and supervision of a healthcare professional.
