What is Pharmacy
Compounding?

Pharmacy compounding is the art and science
of preparing customized medications
to meet specific patient needs.

With a physician’s consent, a compounding pharmacist
can compound preservative or dye free medications,
customized strengths of medications, or different dosage
forms. The different dose strength especially for pediatric,
those discontinued products due to marketing reasons and
special dosage form such as transdermal PLO gel is available
in compounding pharmacy to improve patient compliance.

Some patients do not respond to traditional methods of treatment manufactured by drug companies. Many patients are allergic to preservatives or dyes, or are sensitive to standard drug strengths, or cannot tolerate a specific dosage form. These unique medical problems can be solved with the pharmacy compounding.

In addition, many disease states have been cured or effectively treated as compounding pharmacy is able to offer unique options for individual patients with complicated health problems in order to meet specific patient needs.

Children and the elderly population often benefit the most from customized compounded medications. As a result, more and more physicians and pharmacists are seeing the benefit of custom made compounded products and adding them to their daily prescription protocols.
