What is Compounding?
FDA Definition: Compounding is often regarded as the process of combining, mixing, or altering ingredients to create a medication tailored to the needs of an individual patient.
Our pharmacists compound the medication in a dosage form appropriate for the patient. For example, our pharmacist can prepare the medication using several unique delivery systems:
- Sublingual troche
- Transdermal gel, creams, or ointments
There are several reasons why pharmacists compound prescription medications:
You can receive a drug that is dye-free and preservative-free. This is especially helpful for adults or children who may have allergic reactions to certain substances.
Commercially available medication doses may not be appropriate for a patient’s specific needs. With a physician's approval, we can adjust the strength of a medication, adjust its form to make it easier for the patient to ingest, or add flavor to make it more pleasant.
We can create a modified delivery system that will work specifically for the patient.
Along with providing prescriptions tailored specifically for you, we carry multiple high-end supplement brands to meet all of your wellness needs.
