Sterile Compounding Services

We prepare sterile compounding products including injections, ophthalmics and medications complying with USP specifications such as USP Chapter 797.

Health Dimension's Quality Assurance & Compliance Team works independent of pharmacy operations and spends over 1000 hours annually ensuring that the quality standards of USP are fully functional.

Accuracy, safety, and highest performance services are our goals. 

Injectables

Examples of sterile injections that can be compounded by prescription order include:

  • Intracavernosal injections of papaverine and phentolamine, sometimes with prostaglandin E1 (“œtri-mix”) in customized doses*

*see more info below

Ask us about combinations to meet specific needs or medications that are currently unavailable or have been discontinued for non-safety reasons (such as when a newer therapy reduces the need and therefore decreased use results in the medication no longer being profitable to manufacturer).

Intracavernosal injections

Intracavernosal injection of drugs such as papaverine, phentolamine, and prostaglandin E1 is an effective treatment for patients with erectile dysfunction (ED).

More patients with ED and using ICI preferred it as their main treatment than was expected, even though they had a good response to oral sildenafil. A better quality of erection with ICI was the reason why experienced patients chose this method, differing from the choice of patients starting treatment for ED.

  • I have been dealing with Health Dimensions Compounding Pharmacy on County Club Drive in Farmington Michigan since 1985. Everyone that I have had to talk to has been overly pleasant. I have walked in and even if the representative was very busy they acted as if they had nothing to do until I got there. I would recommend this establishment with a definite five star rating. J. C.

  • Health Dimensions Compound Pharmacy is a wonderful alternative to traditional medicines, especially when the traditional medicines don't work. It's very comforting when a compound is made up specifically for your needs and also very effective. The personnel are warm and caring. They go out of their way to accommodate you. They will do any research necessary to satisfy your needs. Kudos to Ian for such a fantastic job!!! I know he will go out of his way to guarantee satisfaction.

  • The customer service is top notch. They are patient as well as professional. When you walk into the building you know that it is at the highest standards of cleanliness. I was able to observe a young lady in the process of combining some properties and she had on a gown, gloves and cap. They even gave me a free ink pen! I would highly recommend this pharmacy for any of your needs.
