For those who experience pain, taking medications can sometimes be a problem. There are several undesirable side effects associated with taking oral pain medications, such as dizziness, drowsiness, and stomach upset. Compounded pain medications can be a solution to these problems. Here at Cavalier Pharmacy, we can combine the ingredients of traditional oral pain medications and make individualized topical gels, creams or sprays to help get your pain under control.
Children often have difficulty taking medications. This can be due to taste or difficult –to-take dosage forms. At Cavalier Pharmacy, we have dozens of flavors available to enhance the taste of medications. We also can also make medicine in easier to take dosage forms for children or adults who have a difficult time swallowing capsules or tablets. Examples include lollipops, gummies, and oral solutions of medications.
Compounding services are also available for those who have allergies to particular ingredients or dyes used in commercially available medications.

Cavalier Pharmacy is dedicated to the health and safety of our patients. We offer a wide range of immunizations to protect patients from acquiring certain infections and diseases, including:
* Flu – aka the influenza shot
Influenza, or the flu, is a virus that attacks your respiratory system. Influenza can cause hospital visits and even death in some cases. Each year the strain of influenza virus changes, and, as a result, the vaccine also changes each year. For this reason, it is recommended that you get a yearly flu shot. The vaccine can be given by shot or nasal spray. Our pharmacists will be sure to discuss any allergies or conditions you may have to determine if you are eligible to receive the flu shot.
* Pneumonia (Prevnar-PCV13 & Pneumovax-PPSV23) – aka the pneumonia shots
Pneumonia is an infection caused by bacteria, viruses, or fungi getting into your lungs. Pneumonia can be fatal in infants, young children, older adults and those with chronic health problems or weak immune systems. The pneumonia vaccines that are currently available are used to prevent infection caused by pneumococcal bacteria. Currently there are two vaccines available:
* Prevnar, or PCV13, is recommended in children under 5 years old or patients 65 years of age and older.
* Pneumovax, or PPSV23, is recommended for many patients including those 65 years of age and older, patients 19 years and older who smoke cigarettes or have asthma, or patients who are 2 years and older with co-existing conditions such as diabetes, heart failure, COPD, or any disease that weakens your immune system.
Our pharmacists will be sure to discuss any allergies or conditions you may have to determine if you are eligible to receive the flu shot.
* Zostavax – aka the shingles shot –
Zostavax is a vaccine that helps reduce the risk of developing shingles. Shingles is a painful rash on the skin that develops from the same virus that causes chickenpox. If you have had chickenpox or the chickenpox vaccine, you may develop shingles since the virus can remain inactive in your body. 1 in 3 people that reside in the U.S. will develop shingles during their lifetime, so it is recommended that all patients ages 60 and older receive the vaccine. Talk to one of our pharmacists about the Zostavax vaccine and if you qualify to receive it.
* Tetanus –
The tetanus shot is a vaccine that protects against tetanus and the serious consequences of infection. It is recommended to receive a tetanus booster vaccine every 10 years. In addition, some boosters include protection against pertussis, or the whooping cough. Ask our pharmacists for more details and which booster is recommended for you.
