Sometimes it takes more than just a spoonful of sugar to get the medicine down, which is where the Emerald Coast Compounding Pharmacy comes in.

"Our prescriptions are all customized to each patient's needs," said Regina Jaquess, pharmacist and owner. "The whole goal is to provide the right amount of medication to the right site — whether it's topical or oral — with as few of side effects as possible."

Pharmacists at ECCP go a bit beyond the average retail pharmacy and work alongside your physician to customize a medicine that fits all your needs.

"We're a triage — the patient, physician and us. The way it should be," Regina said.

"The pharmacy and doctor are on one side," added office manager, and Regina 's sister, Renee. "Based on your symptoms, Regina can make recommendations on medicine to your doctor."

Whether you have an allergy or you'd prefer medicine in a topical cream, ECCP can customize your prescription exactly how you'd like.

"If a patient is in pain, instead of taking an oral ibuprofen, we can make a topical cream to avoid systemic side effects such as stomach ulcers," Regina explained. "We're able to eliminate inactive ingredients that so many people are allergic to such as soy and gluten."
