Sponsor spotlight: Paktia Pharmacy now offering compounding pharmacy services

Rashid Jamali, owner of Paktia Health Mart.

Paktia Pharmacy, located in downtown Edmonds, is now offering compounding pharmacy services. This is a service not available in chain pharmacies.

Rashid Jamali, pharmacist/owner, says his compounding pharmacy provides customers with personalized medication preparations to meet their specific needs, while adhering to strict state and federal requirements. He says professional standards and the latest medical knowledge are used in formulating preparations for his patients.

Rashid works directly with medical professionals like MDs, OB/GYNs, urology doctors, dentists, naturopaths and veterinarians to formulate medications to match patients’ specific needs. His philosophy is that as a family-owned and operated business, he embraces the opportunity to provide personalized attention and quite simply, the best service in town. This new service will allow him to do more of that.

Often the standard route of administration of a medication is a problem and patients have special needs. Solutions to meet these challenges are often found when medications are blended or formulated to the unique dosage and strength of the patient’s prescription in concert with the precise mode of administration needed.

Some of the ways that medications can be formulated are in forms such as capsules, creams, lotions, troches, transdermal products or suppositories. Rashid also says there are ways to make medications more palpable by adding special flavors or scents.

Just a spoon full of sugar, anyone?

  1. We as a family switched over to Paktia about 6-8 months ago and love the service we have received from Rashid. I would recommend using Paktia to anyone. A much better experience than the chain stores. It the way it used to be with great customer service!
