what is compounding?
Compounding provides an innovative way for pharmacists to customize medications to fit the needs of their patients. The art of compounding utilizes modern medicine while still holding true to the roots of modern medicine.
Compounding pharmacies can produce unique dosage forms based on patient needs and/or restrictions. Examples include dye-free, preservative-free, alcohol-free, fragrance-free, and/or sugar-free forms of medications. Many compounds are made into other forms that are not otherwise commercially available.
Your pharmacist is trained in compounding a wide variety of ointments, gels, syrups, suspensions, suppositories, capsules and other formulations that can make medications easier to take, address any special health problems, or just simply get you feeling better, faster.
Compounded medications are safe and effective for most patients who have talked to their doctor about their health and how a compounded medication can help them.
Medications are compounded and dispensed to patients only upon receipt of a valid patient-specific prescription.
Compounding requires a relationship between the patient, physician, and pharmacist. Together, they will work together to provide a treatment option when and if the currently available treatment options are not the best fit for you.
