Hospice Medicine

Hospice patients are special patients with special needs. At Newport Center Compounding Pharmacy we understand those needs and we work closely with hospice organizations to help manage patient’s symptoms through custom medications. Sometimes simply reducing the number of medications a patient is taking by combining several medications into one easy-to-take dosage form like a suspension, suppository, or transdermal cream can greatly affect the quality of the patient’s life. Or, if the patient has uncontrollable pain, sometimes a combination of different pain medications makes all the difference in controlling that pain.

Other ways compounded medications may help hospice patients:

Nausea & Vomiting

Suppositories, troches, suspensions, transdermal gels

Excess Salivation

Oral rinses, capsules, liquids


Transdermal gels, suppositories, sustained-release capsules, troches, topical gels, injectables
