Capsules are a dosage form that contains a powdered medication. They can be taken by mouth for a more systemic effect in the body or inserted vaginally to produce a more localized effect. Capsules allow a compounding pharmacy the ability to customize a medication more easily compared to tablets by personalizing a dose strength or by including or excluding other ingredients due to allergies or sensitivities. They also allow patients the ability to open the capsule to use the powder inside if there is an issue in the ability to swallow. Talk with your doctor or pharmacist to see if compounded capsules are the right choice for you.
