Compounding is the art and science of preparing customized medications for patients that are not commercially available. The practice dates back to the origins of pharmacy when a pharmacist used to make medication for each specific patient. Since the evolution of pharmaceutical manufacturing the role of the pharmacist has changed dramatically. However, in more recent years, prescription compounding has made a resurgence. Modern technology and innovative research has allowed the pharmacist to customize medications to meet the unique needs of patients. We can compound medication into many dosage forms such as creams, suspensions, lollipops, troches, capsules, suppositories, pet treats and more!

What to ask your prescriber about compounding:
Prescription compounding is a rapidly growing component of many prescriber’s practices, but in today’s world of aggressive marketing by drug manufacturers, some may not realize the extent of compounding’s resurgence in recent years. Ask your prescriber about personalized medicine. Our compounding pharmacists are committed to providing high-quality compounded medications in the dosage form and strength prescribed by your healthcare provider. We can consult with your healthcare provider about ways to personalize a medication to meet your needs, and through the triad of patient, physician and pharmacist, can work together to solve your unique medical problems.
