Pavilion Compounding Pharmacy, LLC is the leading compounding pharmacy providing a comprehensive program for mold treatment options. Working closely with several innovators in treatment protocols, including Dr. Donald Dennis, M.D., in Atlanta, GA, we have successfully provided many formulations to our patients for customized plans to get you well!

Many patients are not aware that mold can cause brain fog, sinus congestion, chronic fatigue, gastric problems, sinus headaches, memory loss, joint pain, and a host of non-specific symptoms that can all be related to mold. This infection can also possibly lead to certain cancers, so treatment goals are aggressive and very deliberate. A multi-pronged approach is needed which includes treating the environment as well as the patient.

Being leaders in this field, Pavilion Compounding pharmacists have been at the leading edge of formulation expertise and problem solvers for our doctors. One commonly used drug to treat mold infections is Amphotericin b, an antifungal drug which breaks the cell membrane and subsequent cell death. Amphotericin is difficult to compound and Pavilion pharmacists use a special form of this and supply as a kit to maximize efficacy and ease of use. Several drug dosage forms of Amphotericin B are used including nasal sprays, nasal nebulizations, eye drops, and oral capsules. Side effects are greatly reduced and patient acceptance is extremely positive. Another beneficial drug that we compound for fungal infections is Voriconazole. This antifungal medication works by preventing fungi from producing a substance called ergosterol, which is a component of fungal cell membranes. This also is used as a nasal nebulization in an ultra-fine mist to allow deep penetration and a nasal spray. In many instances, we add a small amount of steroids in order to reduce inflammation and increase penetration. This is on a case by case patient evaluation depending on need.

So now let’s address another common issue, gastroesophageal reflux disease or GERD. Yes, mold increases the toxins, which in turn increases symptoms in the Gastrointestinal Tract. Sugar is well known to feed the mold and treatment via oral antifungals is important and imperative. Pavilion Compounding Pharmacists have formulated a sugar-free oral nystatin suspension designed to be natural and well tolerated by our patients. Our formula coats the GI tract and provides a very palatable method to deliver the drug. We also compound oral capsules and avoid using lactose and excess fillers.

Additionally, treating ones environment is essential for complete remediation of the cause and Pavilion Compounding Pharmacy keeps the complete line of MicroBalance Health Products. These environmental products including mold candles, laundry additives, mold solutions, and wicks. Ask our staff and we would be happy to review the procedures for treatment. We also provide mold plates to be able to test your environment, along with information for sending the plates to a lab for identification of the specific causative organism.

Several of our doctors ask us to compound large volume irrigation solutions, containing several medications including nystatin, gentamicin, clindamycin, itraconazole, mupirocin, budesonide, fluticasone, grapefruit seed extracts, tobramycin and many other options.
