What is compounding?
Pharmacy compounding is the ageless art and science of preparing customized medications to meet the specific patient's needs. Compounding combines innovative techniques, research and state-of-the-art technology, allowing specially trained professionals to prepare customized medications just for you. Historically, compounding was the customary means of providing prescription medications before pharmaceutical manufacturers began producing drugs in mass quantities. Today, as prescribers and patients realize the limited number of strengths and dosage forms available on the market, the demand for professional compounding has increased. With a physician's written prescription or consent, a compounding pharmacist can customize your medication just for you!
