Life Care Pharmacy Pharmacy opened its doors in 1985 and began compounding quality, customized prescriptions for patients in and around the North Fulton area. The pharmacy is centered around the physician-patient-pharmacist relationship and helping patients receive medications that are customized specifically to their healthcare needs.Topical medications absorb directly through the skin, helping avoid potential side effects of stomach upset or drowsiness. They are prescribed for hormone replacement therapy, pain management, inflammation and nausea/vomiting.Troches, similar to a lozenge, are placed under the tongue and dissolved, allowing medication to enter the bloodstream quickly. Some troches can be chewed and swallowed by a patient who cannot or will not take a capsule or tablet. Custom flavoring is also available for these forms of medications as well as rapid dissolve tablets.
