Compounding combines an ageless art with the latest medical knowledge and
state-of-the-art technology, allowing specially trained professionals to prepare
customized medications to meet each patient’s specific needs. Compounding
is fundamental to the profession of pharmacy and was a standard means of providing
prescription medications before drugs began to be produced in mass quantities
by pharmaceutical manufacturers. The demand for professional compounding has
increased as healthcare professionals and patients realize that the limited
number of strengths and dosage forms that are commercially available do not
meet the needs of many patients, and that these patients often have a better
response to a customized dosage form that is "just what the doctor ordered".
Our compounding professionals can prepare:
unique dosage forms containing the best dose of medication for each individual.
medications in dosage forms that are not commercially available, such
as transdermal gels, troches, "chewies", and lollipops.
medications free of problem-causing excipients such as dyes, sugar, lactose,
combinations of various compatible medications into a single dosage form
for easier administration and improved compliance.
