What is Compounding?

Compounding combines the ageless art and science of custom making medications to meet the specific needs of an individual patient. A one-size-fits-all approach is what you find in the at a typical retail pharmacy. Compounding pharmacies are able to offer more customizable formulations to help improve the outcomes of their patients.

Compounding can help people who need:

  • Customized strengths in their medications
  • Dosage forms that work for them (lollipops, creams, suspensions, suppositories)
  • Medications that are on back order and can’t be obtained at retail pharmacy
  • Their medications made without fillers that they are allergic to (dyes, gluten, lactose)
