The “one size fits all” approach to medicine has been the standard for decades. But doctors know this approach doesn’t work for everyone, and Sincerus Pharmaceuticals, Inc. is working with dermatologists across the country to revolutionize dermatologic care through “custom medications.”
Sincerus (the latin word for purity), was created in 2015 to move away from the “one size fits all” mentality when it comes to dispensing the dermatologic medicines that doctors are seeking for their patients. Through Sincerus, doctors have more say in the drugs they are prescribing by determining what works best for their patients rather than what’s available in the line of mass produced drugs.
As an FDA-registered 503B Outsourcing Facility, Sincerus creates custom medications, complying with current good manufacturing practice (CGMP) requirements. These medicines are designed to meet doctors’ prescribing needs, often without inactive ingredients known to be irritants or allergens, in modified doses or with alternative methods of administration.
Skin conditions are common, but we don’t all experience the same symptoms and we don’t all respond to medication in the same way, making custom medication an important option. Rather than getting a medicine that is mass produced, irritates your skin and has significant cost to you and healthcare system, doctors can prescribe and directly provide you a medicine that they requested with the dosage of medicines that you need and without the inactive ingredients that you don’t need.
– Doctors know exactly what is in the medication without compromising quality
– Costs are reduced to amounts that are often less than co-pays
– Doctors can dispense medicines directly to patients
And for patients there are healthy benefits:
– Currently 30% of patients don’t fill their initial prescriptions, and 50% don’t take them as prescribed
– 93% of medicines contain know allergens or irritants
– Inactive ingredients can account for 50%-99% of medicines
Through Sincerus, customized medicines have become a cornerstone in the treatment regime for many doctors with patients that can’t tolerate mass-produced medicines or patients who are asking for treatment options that contain less of what they don’t need.
From costs, to dosages, to inactive ingredients: for some people, less truly is more.
