Compounding


Pharmacy compounding
is the art and science of
preparing personalized
medications for patients.

Compounded medications are “made from scratch” – individual ingredients are mixed together in the exact strength and dosage form required by the patient. This method allows the compounding pharmacist to work with the patient and the prescriber to customize a medication to meet the patient’s specific needs.

Patients requiring limited dosage strengths, such as a very small dose for infants

Patients requiring a different formulation, such as turning a pill into a liquid transdermal gel for people who can’t swallow pills due to a medical condition

Patients who absorb or excrete medications abnormally
