Murray Avenue Apothecary
Pharmacist and Murray Avenue Apothecary founder Susan Merenstein works closely with patients and their doctors to blend compounded medicines as an alternative to one-size-fits-all treatment options. These custom remedies—which Susan concocts alongside a staff of lab technicians and one other pharmacist—may be special ordered by physicians when a specific remedy is no longer on shelves or if a patient is allergic to certain ingredients in standard medications.
Besides her 30 years of pharmacy experience, Susan has honed her skills over more than 300 hours in continuing-education classes, developing specialties in topics such as general wellness and supplements, hormone balance, sexual health, and skincare. Her team also churns out pet-friendly compounds that soothe greyhounds’ corns and calluses, moisturize dry paws, and safely dye dalmatians' fur to match this season's firefighter uniforms.
