Welcome to Recharge Rx Compounding Pharmacy: Where Your Medications are Made Just for You!

June 15, 2022

Recharge Rx is a distinguished private compounding pharmacy in the heart of North Central Florida, here to serve you for all of your pharmaceutical needs! A compounding pharmacy makes custom formulations of medications tailored to fit the unique needs of a patient that can’t be met with what is commercially available.

Recharge Rx owners Dr. Steve Tieche and his wife Cynthia Tieche made the decision to open this pharmacy after seeing the importance of custom doses for patients at their medical office, Recharge Clinic. Dr. Tieche takes a very personalized approach to treating his patients and understands that everyone’s bodies are different, so a “one size fits all” medication prevented him from being able to help his patients reach their individual health goals. They saw the need for a pharmacy able to make custom doses for their patients and opened Recharge Rx to do just that.

Recharge Rx is a fully functioning pharmacy complete with generic and name brand prescription and over-the-counter medications, supplements and vitamins, CBD products, and skin care products, with the added benefit of making custom prescriptions for patients. The Recharge family is so excited to have this opportunity to help patients optimize their health, and give medical professionals the ability to send prescriptions to a pharmacy capable of compounding personalized medications.

What makes a compounding pharmacy different from a regular pharmacy?

A compounding pharmacy has the same ability to carry commercial drugs that are available at your typical pharmacy, but with the added benefit of being able to create custom prescriptions as well. A compounding pharmacy can make custom formulations of medications designed to fit the unique needs of a patient that would be otherwise unavailable in generic pharmacy. In a compounding pharmacy, licensed pharmacists have the ability to make combinations of medications, as well as different forms, such as:

  • Tablets
  • Nasal Sprays
  • Troches (dissolvable tablet similar to a lozenge)
  • Topical Creams

Regular Pharmacy vs. Compounding Pharmacy:

Regular –

  • Commercial drugs available in standardized doses
  • Pre-mixed formulas
  • Patients are forced to chose the closest option available to the dose they’re prescribed
  • There are potential side effects caused by ingredients in pre-mixed formulas or the administration route
  • FDA regulated, must follow strict rules that may affect a patient’s available treatment options

Compounding –

  • Customized medications available to fit specific doses, as well as the height and weight, gender, and age of a patient
  • Created using pure ingredients, mixed to create specific formulas based on patient needs
  • Precise dosage, pure ingredients, and specific forms can reduce side effects caused by pre-mixed ingredient formulas or certain forms (Ex. A patient with a sensitive stomach may experience side effects like an upset stomach from taking oral tablets. A compounding pharmacy can create their required medication in a form that avoids this.)
  • Overseen by State Licensing Boards for safety instead of the FDA, giving greater freedom of treatment options to patients while being just as safe as a regular pharmacy

Compounding pharmacies have the ability to create medication forms that offer the most convenient and effective application/route of administration (Ex. A patient needs a specific combination of T3 and T4 thyroid hormone medications that is only available as two separate prescriptions at a regular pharmacy. A compounding pharmacy can create one prescription that contains the prescribed dose of each hormone.)

So what’s the benefit of a compounding pharmacy?

A compounding pharmacy’s ability to create custom medications, as well as offer commercially available medications, offers many benefits to both patients and providers. Patients have access to medications that are the perfect fit to their needs, and providers have the ability to prescribe customized medications, giving them the ability to provide a better, more personalized treatment to their patients.

Benefits of a compounding pharmacy include:

  1. Personalized prescriptions
  2. Convenience – combining multiple ingredients into one formulation can reduce the number of medications that a patient has to remember to take every day
  3. Provides access to pharmaceuticals that may no longer be commercially available
  4. Offers unique treatments and special medication formulas
  5. Medication forms that are easier to administer to patients that may be difficult/picky (children, elderly adults, etc.)
  6. Reduced risk of side effects and allergic reactions caused by certain ingredients that can be eliminated 
  7. Costs less than commercial medications – by subtracting the costs of patented pre-mixed formulas and expensive commercial dyes and preservatives allows compounding pharmacies to create high-quality, personalized prescriptions medications at an affordable price

What kind of medications can Recharge Rx provide to me?
