Compounding and Cancer Treatment


Hello again from the Compound Lab!

It’s universally agreed that cancer is a terrible disease—and unfortunately, it’s one that most of us will encounter in some form. According to cancer.org, roughly one in two men and one in three women will develop cancer at some point during their life. Fortunately, not all of these types of cancer are life-threatening, but odds are that if you haven’t had cancer yourself, you know someone who has or will.

If you have seen cancer, you understand how scary and complicated it can be. Cancer comes with its own set of unknowns. How will it affect my health? How will it affect my job and relationships with others? How will I pay for treatment? And so on.

And then there are the unknowns with chemo. Most of us are at least loosely familiar with side effects of chemotherapy like hair loss and vomiting, but that’s only part of it. There’s plenty of other potential headaches that you can run into: some types of cancer prevent swallowing of chemo tablets; sometimes the ideal dose of chemo doesn’t exist; sometimes insurances don’t want to pay for compounded chemo medicines.

We’ve helped people in each of these situations and others like it. Cancer is hard enough without having to worry about these other issues. Let us help make it easier for you—cancer is more than enough as it is.

As always, we're available in the lab Monday through Friday, 9am to 5pm. Or you can email me anytime at brandon.ladage@belewdrugs.com. We’d love to hear from you!

Until next time,

Brandon
