What is Compounding?
Pharmaceutical Compounding has always traditionally been a part of pharmacy practice, however, it has now become more recognized as an alternative to the “one dose fits all” approach offered by large-scale manufacturing. Compounding Pharmacies are regulated by their State Board of Pharmacy and only utilize ingredients of the highest quality. Compounding Pharmacists are specially trained to formulate dosage forms tailored to the unique needs of each individual patient.
Examples of compounded dosage forms include:
- Rapid Dissolve Tablets
- Animal Treats
- Flavored liquids for children or pets
- Dye free, alcohol free, or lactose free medications for sensitive patients
Compounding allows the Physician to customize doses for each patient to reduce side effects and improve compliance. Our Compounding Pharmacist can work with your Physician to formulate a therapy suited just for you.
Examples of where compounding is especially useful include:
- Bio Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy
- Hospice Patients
- Pain Management
- Sports Medicine
- Veterinary Medicine
- Wound Care
